Montreal Canadiens: The Other Guys

Montreal Canadiens: The Other Guys

The Canadiens’ prospect pool appears to be stronger and deeper than ever before, as was made evident at the recent WJHC. Poehling and Alexander Romanov had superb tournaments along with Cayden Primeau and Jesse Ylonen who both stood out as big game players for their respective countries. In addition, Nick Suzuki and Josh Brook who […]

Montreal Canadiens: Worst 10 Trades Since 1993

Last week I counted down the 10 best trades the organization had made since last winning the Stanley Cup in 1993. It’s only fitting that I should examine the other side of the coin and list off what I see as the 10 worst trades in the same time span. Maybe a disclaimer should be […]

Montreal Canadiens: Best 10 Trades Since 1993

Several different factors come into play when assembling a winning team. Obviously most would place drafting at the top of that list, and rightfully so but finding the right […]

Habs Blue Line: Analyzing the Left Side

Habs Blue Line: Analyzing the Left Side

After six seasons and what seems to be more roster moves than he recorded points in his 1191 game career (181 if you were wondering); it seems Marc Bergevin has finally laid down the groundwork to a foundation the organization can move forward with. A young core that may lack star power, although a couple […]

Montreal Canadiens: Depth Down the Middle

Montreal Canadiens: Depth Down the Middle

Before most of us can remember, the Canadiens had real depth down the middle. Names like Beliveau, Richard and Morenz, to name just a few. For those over 30 years of age, we can look back to Muller, Damphousse and Koivu as legitimate top end centers. The likes of Galchenyuk, McCarron and Leblanc brought false […]

Oh Baby: Thank You Bob Cole

Ask anyone across Canada over the last half a century to describe hockey, Canada and childhood.  Many answers might come back but only one would be correct to encapsulate a response that everyone could agree with: Saturday night, The Toronto Maple Leafs versus The Montreal Canadiens with Bob Cole in the broadcast booth to sing […]
