The Montreal Canadiens had to deal with the harsh reality of losing Russian star Alexander Radulov to the Dallas Stars over the week-end, and needless to say their very passionate fans have not been very happy about it.
On Monday Radulov did his best attempt at damage control when he sent out a very nice message to the fans base as well as the Montreal Canadiens organization.
I want to thank the Montreal Canadiens’ fans, team and organization for a great year. Your passion and energy are amazing. Thank you for making me feel like I was at home and welcome. I will never forget my time in this beautiful city. Je t’aime Montréal.
It was a nice way to depart from Radulov, however given how fresh and how disappointing his departure is, the message has been met with a great deal of negativity.
