Zenon Konopka will not be bringing his muscle to the Canadiens.
The free agent enforcer has signed with Ottawa for $700,000 (only $200,000 more than the Canadiens will pay Georges Laraque not to fight this season).
The Habs, however, filled out their depth chart way below Carey Price by signing two AHL goaltenders, Peter Delmas and Nathan Lawson.
In other signings around the league on Tuesday, Keith Yandle will be staying in Phoenix (five years, $26.25 million), Tomas Kaberle takes his magic to Carolina (three years, $12.75 million), the Hurricanes sign Jussi Jokinen (three years, $9 million), Clarke MacArthur stays in Toronto (two years, $6.5 million) and Andrew Ladd stays in Atl … uh, Winnipeg (five years, $22 million).
And the Stanley Cup champions made a move: the Bruins got Joe Corvo from Carolina for a fourth-round draft choice.
