Juraj Slafkovsky met with the media following his massive contract extension with the Canadiens. He made several interesting statements on the matter.

As the first overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft, it was important for him to settle the contract situation as quickly as possible to focus on his summer training and the upcoming season.
Good news, this was also the Canadiens' goal. So, both parties agreed on the terms of an 8-year contract worth a total of $60.8 million.
Listening to the towering Slovak, it's clear he values teamwork and that the final amount wasn't his primary goal in negotiations.
"I knew I wanted to re-sign. For me, it's not about the money, I just wanted to stay (...)

The important thing was the eight years. If I wanted more money, I could have waited. It's done now, I can focus on my game and winning. That's the most important thing for me!" - Juraj Slafkovsky

This demonstrates the attitude of the Canadiens' top-line winger. A good signing for both sides, the reaction is unanimous!
