- Habs F Daniel Briere has the 5th most playoff points amongst all active NHL'ers. He has 13 game winning goals in the postseason, 3rd highest among active players.
A day after re-signing Petteri Nokelainen, GM Marc Bergevin continued to lock up the returning players, signing Travis Moen to a four year, $7.4 million contract. Moen was widely thought to be the most coveted of Montreal's impending unrestricted free agents due to his leadership, his physical style of play, and his above average defensive abilities.
2011-12 got off to a strong start for the 30 year old winger as he was on pace to surpass his career highs in all offensive categories before being felled by an upper-body injury that saw him play his final game of the year in early February. Moen did note that he would have been ready to play had the Habs been in the playoffs and that he has been training for nearly two months now. He finished the season with 16 points in 48 games, equalling his point total from the previous year despite playing in 31 fewer games.
Moen joined the club as part of the UFA spending frenzy of 2009. In three years with Montreal, he has played in 234 games with the club (including the playoffs), tallying 55 points to go with 200 PIMS and a -10 rating. In his first two seasons with the Canadiens, he finished second on the club in hits while he has been in the top-3 in shorthanded time on ice per game (for forwards) in each season.
The contract contains a partial no-trade for the first two years of the deal and then no trade restrictions afterwards. Assuming the team signs their remaining restricted free agents, they will have 42 out of a possible 50 committed contracts.
