Montreal Canadiens: Fourth Line Additions

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. Whether more changes are still to come or not remains to be seen but for now, Bergevin has held true to his word in not trading away any of his valuable […]

Dealing Back For Dale: Weise Returns To Montreal

Dealing Back For Dale: Weise Returns To Montreal

Questions for this team began to circle with the season getting on towards the homestretch; ironically, one of the bigger questions was “who can this team acquire to upgrade the 4th line?” all after Marc Bergevin had been much maligned and verbally taken to the cleaners for almost exclusively acquiring 4th line forwards in seasons […]

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 […]

After 51 games played, leading into the NHL all star weekend, which is followed by the Canadiens’ annual week long break, the team sits at number 9 in points throughout the entire league.

Montreal Canadiens: Worst 10 Trades Since 1993

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
