Draft Recap: Habs Stock Up On Defense

This year’s NHL draft has come and gone in a blink of an eye. Scouts and their organizations prepare for so long for a two-day event, hoping to walk away with the future of their teams in their quest for the ultimate goal, the Stanley Cup. The Canadiens came into Vancouver with a goal to […]

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 […]

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

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 Contractual Obligations: Charles Hudon

With the first part of this series tackling Artturi Lehkonen, it is not about to get easier.  The Montreal Canadiens have some decisions to make and while the verdicts of many may appear to be simple, ironing out the details and understanding why is sometimes more complex than it appears.  Recency bias and –conversely– legacy […]

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Artturi Lehkonen

The vast array of criteria, subjectivity and the interpretation therein of what the next contract should look like for any given player across the National Hockey League is, at times, mind boggling; moreover, it becomes particularly confusing when the eye test and the statistics read somewhat differently or when faced with the rare difficulty of […]

Montreal Canadiens: The Difference Makers

Montreal Canadiens: The Difference Makers

Most Hab fans will agree that the 2018-19 season was cut short; that the Canadiens played well enough through the 82-game schedule to qualify for the post-season.

Carey Price Deserves Better Than the Montreal Canadiens

It is needless to say that Carey Price is on a team that simply does not capitalize on his abilities. The Habs are on the verge of missing the playoffs for the third straight year. And while the injuries and bad calls are valid excuses for their current losing streak, there are plenty of errors […]
