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.

Habs Trade Galchenyuk To Coyotes For Domi

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 […]
