Chelseas Jose Mourinho with FC Porto

The Montreal Canadiens have avoided salary arbitration with forward Lars Eller, signing him to a four-year, $14 million contract on Thursday. [url=http://www.nbawarriorsauthority.com/klay-thompson-warriors-jersey-c-9/]Klay Thompson Warriors Jersey[/url] . Ellers new deal is worth an average annual value of $3.5 million and buys up two years of his status as a potential unrestricted free agent. "We are very pleased to have agreed upon a long term agreement with Lars Eller," said Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin in a team statement. "He is an important part of our group of young veterans. He has a tremendous work ethic and a great attitude. He is the type of player you can rely on for his play at both ends of the rink. Lars can play big minutes against the opponents top players and still be an offensive threat. We are confident he will reach his full potential and become an impact player who will compete at a high level for many years to come." Eller, 25, filed for salary arbitration with the Canadiens on July 5 with a hearing that was scheduled for Friday. "Im very happy to be a Canadien for four more years," he said on the Canadiens conference call on Thursday. "This is the place I want to be." He scored 12 goals and 28 points in 77 regular season games and added five goals and 13 points in 17 playoff games. "The number one thing for me is consistency," Eller added. "When Im on top of my game, theres not much I want to change." Originally selected in the first round (13th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the St. Louis Blues, Eller has scored 45 goals and 58 assists in 286 career NHL games with the Canadiens and Blues. The Canadiens acquired Eller in 2010 from the Blues along with Ian Schultz in exchange for Jaroslav Halak.

NYON, Switzerland -- In a stellar pairing of clubs who won Europes top title 14 times, Real Madrid will play Bayern Munich in the Champions League semifinals. Atletico Madrid and Chelsea were matched in the other semifinal as UEFA threatened the English club with sanctions if it tried to enforce a pay-to-play clause written in the contract for loaning goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to its Spanish opponent since 2011. On the field, the city of Madrid will host the first two matches on April 22 and 23, as Atletico first hosts Chelsea at the Vicente Calderon Stadium one night before Madrid welcomes defending champion Bayern to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. "We are the teams who are playing the most attractive football right now," former Bayern and Real Madrid great Paul Breitner said. Nine-time champion Madrid and five-time winner Bayern have also been runner-up a further eight times, yet never met in the final. Bayern is looking to become the first team in 24 years to repeat as Europes top club after cruising to the German league title. "We acknowledge that Bayern Munich, since the beginning of the season, the performance has been amazing," Real Madrid director Emilio Butragueno said. "But we are Real Madrid and when we compete, we compete to win." Atletico will face the 2012 champions, who the Spanish club routed 4-1 in the UEFA Super Cup two years ago. A potential dispute over Courtois appeared to be resolved by UEFA one hour before Fridays draw. Chelsea has a contract clause entitling payment for letting the Belgium international play for Atletico against the club which signed him two years ago as a long-term successor to veteran Petr Cech. "It follows that any provision in a private contract between clubs which might function in such a way as to influence who a club fields in a match is null, void and unenforceabble so far as UEFA is concerned," the European football authority said in a statement.

Atletico director Clemente Villaverde noted that UEFA rules were different to those in the English and Spanish leagues, which allow clauses barring loaned players from opposing their original club. "UEFA has the competence in this matter," said Villaverde, stressing that his club had good relations with Chelsea. Madrid-Bayern is a repeat of the semifinals two years ago decided by a penalty shootout at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium after each team won 2-1 at home. Then, Cristiano Ronaldo was among three Madrid players who failed to score from the spot. The semifinal lineup includes three coaches who each have two Champions League titles with other clubs: Bayerns Pep Guardiola won with Barcelona in 2009 and 11; Madrids Carlo Ancelotti with Milan in 2003 and 07; Chelseas Jose Mourinho with FC Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan in 10. Mourinho could become the first to coach three different clubs to the European title. Guardiola and Ancelotti aim to become the fifth coach to guide two different clubs to the title. The odd man out, Atletico coach Diego Simeone, won a Europa League title with the club in 2012. Ancelotti also played for AC Milan when it was the last back-to-back champion, winning the European Cup in 1989 and 90. The Italian coach is seeking to take Real Madrid to its first final in 12 years. Under Mourinho, it lost in the semifinals for the past three seasons. "Im confident we can do what is needed to win," Ancelotti said. "Guardiola is one of the best coaches in the world and the series against Bayern will be difficult for both teams." The return matches will be played on April 29 in Munich and the following night in London. The final is scheduled for May 24 at the Stadium of Light in Lisbon.
