This to me is a team friendly deal, in terms of AAV as well as timing (meaning signing the extension before the season even starts and squashing any speculation).

The contract length of 6 years is fine, the team gets more benefit while he's still in his prime, and then the player gets a bit more benefit as he fades, that's just what it is.  The downside I see is he is small, plays his heart out every shift, so what will a 35yo BG have left in the tank? But the upside is that he's a leader by example and will always be good for the players around him...if Weber were not older and the Captain, next up would likely be Gallagher.  

Its not a screaming deal like his last contract turned out to be (great gamble that paid off by MB). But its more than fair, I think it falls under the category of team friendly.

I guess as well it was better than the alternative of knocking heads into the " off-season " and disrupting things by creating bad feelings ...it's interesting to note that the hockey press went nuts and started speculating Gallagher could be traded to Van ...the next day he signed ....never underestimate what is already working in one's life ala Petry and his family liking it in Montreal ...in the end it looked like it was more about meeting in the middle and getting it done but it would be nice to know what the "misunderstanding " was between Gallagher's agent and Bergevin ...it might have something to do with the NMC ..Gally I think only has 5 or 6 teams he can refuse to be traded to but other contracts like Petry's has 15

Not that it matters now, since the deal is done, but apparently MB and Gallaghers agent have both said that during the negotiations there was a misunderstanding which is why the talks halted.  Once they figured out that misunderstanding, they went back to negotiating and were done quite quickly. 

Would be interesting to know what the misunderstanding was!

MB is on TSN 690 at 3:30, and Gally at 4.

Maybe MB thought Gallagher was Russian!

Good thing he came to his senses.  Once Bergevin got a hate on, he purged the Habs of all Russians! Maybe he's learning. Can't let your feelings dictate your needs, although with Gally, it was all right.
