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 […]

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 […]

Broken Record, Broken Needle: Marc Bergevin Missing The Point

The end of the season press conference has come and gone.  Marc Bergevin and Geoff Molson came to address the usual group of individuals from the media and while a fresh note or two was played at this proverbial concert, this presser has –in essence– only made things worse.   Marc and Geoff preach a […]

Learning on the Fly

2017-18 Season to Date To say that the 2017-18 season has been a roller-coaster ride for the Habs would be a vast understatement. From an underwhelming off-season which saw a virtual complete overhaul of the team’s defensive corpse to the lack of scoring, this has been a disappointing season to date. The positive thing for […]

Is Victor Mete the Reason Mikhail Sergachev Was Traded?

Is Victor Mete the Reason Mikhail Sergachev Was Traded?

After trading Subban last year, not re-signing Markov, losing Emelin to Vegas (now in Nashville) and trading Beaulieu to Buffalo, it is crazy to think that Montreal would trade a future top defenseman for a French superstar and not have a backup plan on defense. Marc Bergevin has been known for making questionable trades over […]
