Montreal Canadiens' Biggest Bargains for the 2013-14 Season

Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin gets his share of flak for bad deals currently on the books for the 2013-14 season, but he has also proven quite adept at making the odd great bargain.

Cases can definitely be made that players like David Desharnais (current cap hit of $3.5 million), Carey Price ($6.5 million) and Daniel Briere ($4 million) have been overpaid under his watch. Hell, cases can be made that both Ryan White ($700,000) and Davis Drewiske ($637,500) are being overpaid as well.

That’s beside the point, though.

For each Price, no pun intended, there is also a Brendan Gallagher. Gallagher, of course, was nominated for the Calder Memorial Trophy last year despite making a base salary of just $690,000.

Being a first-year pro, Gallagher is admittedly the rarest of exceptions.

Excluding those currently on entry-level deals struck with the team holding all the leverage, the Habs are still sitting relatively pretty in regard to the contracts of at least a handful of players.

Here are the top five for the upcoming 2013-14 season, taking each player's entire contract into consideration.
