What’s Eating Paul Byron?

What’s Eating Paul Byron?

Coaches, fans and everyone else love players that they do not need to worry about.  The guys with the best reputations are the ones that leave little to mystery because everyone knows what they are going to do and the opposition is essentially powerless to stop them.  Everyone has known for a handful of seasons […]

Habs First Impressions: 2019-2020

Habs First Impressions: 2019-2020

  “I know it’s early but..” – Pundits across the league, gathering what data they can from a sample size of approximately 2 or 3 games.   Plenty of thoughts are circulating across the league for all 31 teams in the NHL, meaning the Habs are in the same situation as everyone else.  The beauty and […]

Project Commitment: Habs Extend McCarron

Project Commitment: Habs Extend McCarron

The Habs well renowned misfortunes in the first round of the NHL entry draft seemed to latch onto Michael McCarron instantaneously.  From day one he was recognized as a raw project and it was understood that his development was going to be an epic process, one that would see him only just maybe get his […]

Aho, Matey: Habs Offer Sheet Hurricanes Sebastian Aho

Aho, Matey: Habs Offer Sheet Hurricanes Sebastian Aho

Sebastian Aho checks every box for all 31 franchises in the NHL and that clearly includes the Montreal Canadiens: young (21), can skate, is a point per game player and –for bonus points– he is a center.  On a day where guys at the latter half of their prime or are aging and looking for […]

Coming To Carey’s Aid: Habs Sign Keith Kinkaid

Coming To Carey’s Aid: Habs Sign Keith Kinkaid

Keith Kinkaid was an early lock for the Montreal Canadiens with word having made its way to the surface in recent days.  This would usually be met with groans and sighs of yet another depth player (counting backup goalies in that) being the “big move” made by Marc Bergevin at a critical point in time.

Top 4 Trade Talks: Is Nick Leddy Perfect Fit For Habs?

Here comes that time of year again where everything starts to heat up but forget the shorts and the flip flops because this time of year and the heat that comes with it is for the phone lines and negotiation tables.  The Montreal Canadiens may be in position to celebrate Canada Day by making a […]

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Jordie Benn

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Jordie Benn

The Montreal Canadiens have an interesting group staring down the free agency barrel; a baby faced Finnish assassin, a homegrown kid stuck in limbo, a size enriched enigma, a mobile blue liner on the right side of youth but the wrong side of recent fortunes and a depth guy that punched above his weight on the second pair.  All […]

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Brett Kulak

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Brett Kulak

There was plenty good reason to wait with this piece of the series.  There was a strong sense that Brett Kulak would land himself a new deal to remain in Montreal and it follows the same trend that the rest seem to be in that they could have paid him more and justified doing so […]

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Mike Reilly

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Mike Reilly

Now that the forward group has been rounded out in this series with the likes of Artturi Lehkonen, Charles Hudon and Joel Armia, here comes the back half of this series and –with it– the pending free agents on the back end.  Much ado has been made about the Canadiens defensive unit and with a plethora of options […]

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Joel Armia

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Joel Armia

From a “snake bit” youngster oozing maturity to a misfit skilled kid, it is an odd bunch due for renewal or release this summer in Montreal.  That being said, the oddest one in the bunch might just be one of the newer arrivals and he is certainly the most difficult one to nail down.   […]

Canadiens Re-Up Charles Hudon For One Year
