An Open Letter to Marc Bergevin; Time is Up

An Open Letter to Marc Bergevin; Time is Up

Congratulations Marc Bergevin and co! You have finally managed to do it. You have killed my love for the Canadiens. Believe me, that was not an easy thing to do. Yet, somehow, your moronic, cheapskate, and other adjectives that my mother would not approve of, way of operating the team has destroyed any hope I have ever had […]

The Politics of the Montreal Canadiens

The Politics of the Montreal Canadiens

As more and more is discussed about the dismissal of current Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien, my thoughts go toward who would succeed his tenure. These thoughts are not happy ones, as all that comes to mind is the French language aspect of the Canadiens, and the question of why the Habs need a French-speaking […]

Come on Canadiens, Enough is Enough

Come on Canadiens, Enough is Enough

I can’t believe I’m finally saying it, but the Canadiens have driven me to my breaking point. For years I have put up with the bullshit of the Canadiens, be it the mandatory French coaching controversy of the nightmare 2011-2012 season, the Pierre Gauthier era, where he nearly destroyed the franchise, Geoff Molson’s reluctance to involve […]

Why Montreal Shouldn’t Trade for Steven Stamkos

Why Montreal Shouldn’t Trade for Steven Stamkos

There have been some fairly credible rumors putting Montreal in the hunt to acquire Steven Skamkos. Although I seriously doubt it would happen, I will stress that it isn’t a good idea. Before you freak out, listen to me. I would love to have arguably the best scoring center in the world on the Canadiens. However, […]

The “All-Star” Game: Is It Worth It?

The “All-Star” Game: Is It Worth It?

For those who don’t know, the NHL has implemented a new format for this year’s festivities, which includes a 3 vs 3 tournament consisting of 4 teams made from the “best” players from each respective division. With this implementation, the fantasy draft format that has been in place since 2011 has been scrapped. The game has […]

The Myth of the Enforcer

The Myth of the Enforcer

If you read tweets about the Habs-Leafs game lately, you would think that Leo Komarov killed P.K Subban on Wednesday. This is false. When Devante Smith-Pelly stepped up, he was applauded, as he should have been. What people didn’t see at first is that his move negated a Montreal powerplay. Additionally, from the ways fans […]

Is Dustin Tokarski St. John’s Bound?

Is Dustin Tokarski St. John’s Bound?

It is interesting how the mighty can fall. In two years, you can go from an absolute hero to scapegoat. In professional hockey cities, especially Montreal, this is nothing new. It seems like yesterday that the main man in Montreal went down, and a new hero had to arise. That hero being Dustin Tokarski, and his […]

2015-2016 Montreal Canadiens Predictions

2015-2016 Montreal Canadiens Predictions

Before you say it, and we all know you are, I do in fact realize it’s July 12th. “It’s too early to be making predictions Ben, free agency isn’t even over”.  That might be true, but the way this off-season is going, I don’t like the sound of next season. “Stop being negative Ben, we finished second […]

Should the Canadiens Trade their First Round Pick?

Should the Canadiens Trade their First Round Pick?

I find myself asking this question every offseason, could this be the year that Montreal Canadiens trade away their first round pick? In all honesty, I don’t think Montreal will, not because it is a bad thing, but because General Manager Marc Bergevin has so much trust in director of amater scouting Trevor Timmins. I […]

Montreal Canadiens: This Isn’t a Surprise…

Montreal Canadiens: This Isn’t a Surprise…

So, that was fun eh? After tonight’s loss, Montreal is down 2-0 to Tampa Bay where the Bolts have shocked (pun somewhat intended) a good amount of Canadiens fans. As for myself? I am not surprised at all. The product Montreal has delivered all season has amounted to this after all, hasn’t it? This is […]
