Ever changing constants are an intriguing oxymoron and one that the hockey world lends itself to, whether it realizes that or not.  The Montreal Canadiens have been a visible case in point of just that in their first small handful of showcases to start the young season.  Early and often are the keynotes and they […]

The Prospects of the Canadiens’ Future

With the recent trade of now former Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty, which landed Tomas Tatar, Nick Suzuki, and a second round pick from the Vegas Golden Knights, it is safe to assume that the Habs have committed to a full-fledged rebuild.

Everything Is Rosey: Habs Extend Jacob De La Rose

Who says the St. Louis Blues are snapping up all of the centers this side of John Tavares? The Show Me State may be showing their money in hoards following a big (losing) trade for Ryan O’Reilly and the far too generous signing of now former rival Tyler Bozak but The Swedish Sensation Jacob de […]

Habs Agree to Terms with Michael Chaput and Kenny Agostino

DEPTH. DEPTH. DEPTH. That is the story of the Canadiens on the opening day of free agency and there is nothing wrong with that. They shouldn’t dive into crazy contracts with long term when they are in currently in a period of retooling. In addition to signing Ouellet and Peca earlier today, the Habs announced […]

Montreal is smart to take advantage of teams looking to free cap space

Montreal is smart to take advantage of teams looking to free cap space

The Montreal Canadiens have a busy summer ahead of them, loaded with cap space and looking to stockpile on young depth pieces and draft picks ahead of a “re-tooling period”. While it is difficult to rebuild with contracts carried by Carey Price and Shea Weber, it is possible to re-tool and send the franchise in […]

Habs Flex Their Cap; Acquire Mason and Parts From Jets

The Canadiens have dealt Simon Bourque, a minor league defenseman, to the Jets for Joel Armia, Steve Mason, a 7th round pick in 2019 and a 4th round pick in 2020. This already is a win and Marc Bergevin should be applauded for this move. The Canadiens had cap space as leverage in negotiations which […]

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. Though the organization didn’t reach their ultimate goal, there’s plenty of positives to take away from this edition of the Canadiens and the exclamation point came courtesy of […]
