From Habs Inside/Out
According to RDS, the Canadiens have extended a contract offer to potential unrestricted free agent Alex Kovalev, the second UFA to receive an offer from Bob Gainey after Mike Komisarek.
That means Saku Koivu and Alex Tanguay will have to wait until after July 1 before receiving any offers from the Canadiens, the sports network says.
In other news, the Canadiens extended qualifying offers to restricted free agents Christopher Higgins, Tomas Plekanec, Guillaume Latendresse, Matt D’Agostini, Gregory Stewart and Kyle Chipchura.
I am going to cry….Not about Tanguay, honestly, I don’t care if he leaves, but Koivu….
