Phillip Danault’s Outstanding Play Crucial to Habs Success

Phillip Danault’s Outstanding Play Crucial to Habs Success

Look-at-him-go, Phillip Danault! If I’m being completely honest, before the season started I had Phillip Danault penciled in as MAYBE the Habs 13th forward. Boy, was I wrong. When I made that prediction back in August, I don’t think I actually watched Danault enough to properly evaluate his talent and see what he could bring […]

Championship Games Should Not Be Decided By Shootouts

Championship Games Should Not Be Decided By Shootouts

The 2017 edition of the IIHF World Junior Championship tournament is in the bag (my colleague, Zachary Ellis, has written it up here) and Team USA battled it out with Team Canada for the Gold. This was a game for the ages: a lead by Canada, lost to a USA tie not once, but twice […]

Alexander Radulov and that “Special Something” He Brings to the Habs

Alexander Radulov and that “Special Something” He Brings to the Habs

There’s something different about this 2016-2017 Montreal Canadiens team, specifically on the top line. It’s no secret that this “special something” is coming from Marc Bergevin’s free agent signing of the summer, Alexander Radulov.

It’s Too Early to Give Up on Jacob de la Rose

It’s Too Early to Give Up on Jacob de la Rose

A quick peek at Jacob de la Rose’s stat-line immediately raises questions: Two assists in 11 games and 27 points in 82 AHL games. These aren’t eye-popping totals, and are in fact best described as disappointing.

Why is Desharnais Disliked by Fans?

Why is Desharnais Disliked by Fans?

Last Tuesday night against Pittsburgh, David Desharnais had himself a great game. He scored twice, and received a star selection, while playing the majority of the game on the third line. A spot where he has had success in the past, and a spot where he should stay. Before I continue, I want to clarify, if […]
