Top Five Free Agents: Who Could the Habs Acquire

In less than 24 hours, the NHL draft will be underway at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo. And in a weeks’ time, free agents around the league will hit the market on the hunt for a new home. Mounting speculation over who the Montreal Canadiens will draft and whether or not they will be […]

Dale Weise: Should He Come Back?

Dale Weise: Should He Come Back?

Dale Weise has made it no secret that he wants to dawn the CH crest across his chest next season. The moment he was traded with fellow teammate Tomas Fleischmann to the Chicago Blackhawks, the 27 year-old right winger expressed interest in coming back to the team where he played the best hockey of his […]

Pater-in or Pater-out? Greg Pateryn’s Future with the Montreal Canandiens

Pater-in or Pater-out? Greg Pateryn’s Future with the Montreal Canandiens

The Montreal Canadiens were plagued with injuries all season long, which hurt the team’s chances of making it into post-season festivities. On the flip side, however, the fans and the organization got to witness the development of a few younger players who would have otherwise played much less or not at all. One such player […]

It’s Time to Say Goodbye, David Desharnais

It’s Time to Say Goodbye, David Desharnais

At the mention of David Desharnais‘ name, I can feel the blood pressure in the room shoot up at an alarming rate. Like Therrien, DD is associated with much frustration and hatred. Taken together, Therrien and Desharnais fail to garner any positivity from fans and pundits; pretty much everyone wants the two out. Looking away from the present […]

Review: Max Pacioretty’s 1st Year as Captain

With less than a month left in the regular season, the Montreal Canadiens are all but mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. The smell of post-season hockey will most likely be absent this spring in the city that bleeds bleu, blanc et rouge. Naturally, fans and pundits have turned to the factors contributing to the team’s […]

Montreal Canadiens Need Top-Bottom Mentality for Future

Montreal Canadiens Need Top-Bottom Mentality for Future

While trade rumours about Steven Stamkos have been put to rest for the remainder of the season, some sports analysts have casually raised the possibility of the star centre/RW dawning the sweater of the bleu, blanc et rouge. Now, I know it’s relatively old “speculation” but I couldn’t help but let my mind wonder for […]

Habs Thoughts from the Peanut Gallery

It’s the end of the week. The Montreal Canadiens just played the Buffalo Sabres last night in what I had hoped would have turned out to be their 4th win in a row. Two of my colleagues, Tyler Shea and Lissa Albert, have provided thoughtful accounts of what the Habs should do from now until the […]

Sit Back, Relax, and Watch John Scott

Sit Back, Relax, and Watch John Scott

Oh, and P.K. Subban. Funnily enough, I almost forgot about him, even though he is Montreal’s representative at this weekend’s All-Star Game. As much as I love Subban, my excitement is directed towards John Scott. He’s gone through one of the most hellish type of situations a professional hockey player could go through in a […]

Letter from a Tired Habs Fan

Letter from a Tired Habs Fan

This is my first post for the AATH family. I wish my first article here would be about how great the Habs have been playing, how promising their future looks. But no, unfortunately, I can’t talk about that. I am not here today to find a solution to the Montreal Canadiens’ problems. Whether a coaching […]
