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 […]

Who Can Montreal Meet In The Playoffs?

Who Can Montreal Meet In The Playoffs?

So, we’ve reached the final day of the regular season. Montreal currently sits at 108 points, two ahead of Tampa Bay. No matter what happens on Saturday, the lowest the Canadiens can finish is second in the Atlantic. What results from this is a variety of possible teams Montreal can play. With the Islanders beating the […]

“Carey Price Syndrome”

“Carey Price Syndrome”

Based on last night’s results against the Jets, a lot of fans are furious at Dustin Tokarski. He didn’t perform well, that is not up for debate. However, throughout this season people have been saying absolutely terrible things about the young back up, who on most nights, plays exactly as he should – like an […]

What Montreal Needs From Here

What Montreal Needs From Here

Montreal is in a unique position. The Canadiens currently sit at 35-15-4, and they have the most points through February 13th since the 1992-93 season (74 points). However, many feel that the Habs are not in a position for a drive for the cup and the majority of the Canadiens success rests firmly on the shoulders […]

An Open Letter to Michel Therrien

An Open Letter to Michel Therrien

Okay Michel, let’s keep this real simple. When you took over as head coach in 2012, I was skeptical of your ability to coach the Canadiens… again. In your first run, you showed no emotion or drive to win, I’ll admit, you didn’t have much to work with back then. However, you are currently working […]

Montreal Canadiens: Midpoint Thoughts

Montreal Canadiens: Midpoint Thoughts

As the Canadiens approach the 41 game mark, or “halfway point”, I feel it is time to evaluate the team so far. The Canadiens currently sit at 26-12-2, with 54 points, good enough for second in the Atlantic, and second in the east. I will be giving this evaluation in three parts, firstly, the offensive production of […]

Player Profile: Max Pacioretty

Player Profile: Max Pacioretty

Max Pacioretty is one of the top players Montreal has at the moment, the first pure scorer they have had in 20 years. Pacioretty has been a fixture on the Canadiens first line since the 2011-2012 season, where he really started to develop into the player he is today. He is an excellent forward who […]

Player Profile: Peter Budaj

Player Profile: Peter Budaj

  Peter Budaj has been the backup goalie in Montreal for 3 seasons now, and he has been solid, reliable and a leader for each one. Since his arrival on July 1st 2011, Budaj has done all that can be asked out of a back-up. In a Montreal uniform he has a very respectable 23-16-9 […]
