The Montreal Canadiens wasted no time filling the hole left by the trade of center Daniel Briere one day prior by signing center Manny Malhotra to a one-year contract reportedly worth $850,000 on Tuesday.

The signing was reported by TSN minutes after the free-agent market opened at noon ET.

"I spoke with a few teams that showed some interest, a lot of teams in different stages of their growing process," Malhotra told TSN. "But based on the chat I had with [general manager] Marc Bergevin and then coach [Michel] Therrien, the role they saw me in, where they saw the future of their team going and obviously Montreal being the market it is -- you get chills as an opposing player going into that building -- it's going to be a pretty special feeling putting on the red, white and blue."

Playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins alongside two former Hart Trophy winners in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, left wing James Neal was not looked upon to be a leader or to carry the load offensively.

The Nashville Predators, who acquired Neal on Friday at the NHL Draft in exchange for forwards Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling, will count upon Neal for each of those qualities.

He said he is embracing the challenge.

GOALS: 27 | ASST: 34 | PTS: 61
SOG: 238 | +/-: 15
"To have an opportunity to be a leader and to be the guy is something I've always wanted to be and tried to be as a young player coming into the League," Neal said during a conference call Monday. "I feel like I'm at that stage of my game where I'm willing to take care of that responsibility and drive with it. I'm excited for the challenge. It's going to be fun. When you play this game and you want to be the best, high expectations come with that and you want those expectations."

Avalanche trade Parenteau to Canadiens for Briere

Monday, 06.30.2014 / 5:47 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

The Montreal Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche traded players Monday who might each benefit from a change in scenery.

The Avalanche traded forward PA Parenteau and a fifth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for forward Daniel Briere.

The trade has no effect on the salary cap of either team for the 2014-15 season, with Briere and Parenteau each scheduled to make $4 million. The difference is Parenteau has an extra year on his contract with Briere entering the final season of his.

Briere waived his no-move clause in order for the trade to be completed.

"An up and coming team, the chance to play for Patrick Roy, those are all very enticing," he said. "Feeling wanted, when the team wants you and they need you, those are all things I'm looking forward to. Having a no-trade clause doesn't mean you're not going to be traded in my mind, it just means you maybe have a chance to pick or choose a little bit more your destination. When they told me it was Colorado I was right away very excited."

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
