Taken Back From Toronto: Tomas Plekanec Returns To Canadiens

Some people get sports cars, others get piercings or tattoos.  Tomas Plekanec’s awkward phase was shaving his goatee and wearing a Maple Leafs jersey.   That is now officially over.   The endeavor was worthwhile.  The Montreal Canadiens ended up with one of their many second round picks and a couple depth pieces, most notably […]

Marc Bergevin went and did it again.  Another trade in which the Canadiens got a good player in exchange for a better player going out.  All of that talk, all of that which began to look promising with strong personnel moves over the off season thus far, any bit of restored faith, seemingly gone –once […]

Trade Talk: Tomas Plekanec

Trade Talk: Tomas Plekanec

There may not be a player that has better embodied the Montreal Canadiens –for better or worse– over the last 15 years than Tomas Plekanec.   Before, Tomas was overly skilled and undersized.  He was mobile and productive but lacking in physicality and would throw the puck away to avoid being hit (certainly a helping […]

State Of The Franchise Address: Canadiens Questionable Start

My fellow observers,   It has come to the attention of many that the Canadiens 2017-18 season thus far has been a tumultuous one.  Losses, many undeserved but others earned; victories, narrow in measure and grand in doing little more than raising additional questions.  What we have here is failure to sustain a franchise’s strengths […]

Montreal Canadiens: Fourth Line Additions

Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin didn’t wait until the trade deadline to revamp and as most seem to agree, upgrade his fourth line.
