Habs interested in Fedorov?
Actually to the Fourth Period, the Canadiens may be making a push to acquire Sergei Fedorov. They would have to free up about 3 million in cap space to take on his 6 million dollar cap hit. The Canadiens have become interested in Fedorov in hopes to improve the offense and have a gifted center playing with Kovalev and Samsonov. Fedorov is 37 and has certainly lost a step off his game. In 24 games this season he has 8 goals and 9 assists. He had a disappointing season last year as well when he only recorded 12 goals and 32 assists in 67 games. Fedorov when in his prime was one of the best players in the NHL, but he is definitely no where near that status anymore. However, he would be a dangerous addition to the Canadiens lineup especially playing with two fellow Russians. It is also rumored that the Canadiens have inquired about Brendan Morrison of Vancover, Vinny Prospal in Tampa, and also Pavel Datsyuk of the Redwings, where Detroit is looking to move him since he is an UFA at the end of the season and could command big time money on the free agent market.
