Coming To Carey’s Aid: Habs Sign Keith Kinkaid

Coming To Carey’s Aid: Habs Sign Keith Kinkaid

Keith Kinkaid was an early lock for the Montreal Canadiens with word having made its way to the surface in recent days.  This would usually be met with groans and sighs of yet another depth player (counting backup goalies in that) being the “big move” made by Marc Bergevin at a critical point in time.

An Apology to Marc Bergevin

An Apology to Marc Bergevin

Hello Marc, It has been a long time since I wrote to you; and it was not a message of good intent. In late June of 2016, I lambasted you and your staff for moves that were then, and can still be viewed now as poor examples of asset management. This previous letter was formed […]

Canadiens Ship Deslauriers to Anaheim

Canadiens Ship Deslauriers to Anaheim

Another one. The Montreal Canadiens have dealt Nicolas Deslauriers to the Anaheim Ducks for a 4th round pick in 2020. This ups their draft pick count for the 2020 NHL Entry Draft in Montreal to 12 picks; 8 of which are in the first 4 rounds. With this move and the trade of Andrew Shaw […]

Habs Deal Andrew Shaw Back to Chicago

Habs Deal Andrew Shaw Back to Chicago

The Montreal Canadiens have made a bit of a splash on the eve of Free Agency to free up cap space. With time ticking down, Marc Bergevin made the decision to trade fan favourite and agitator, Andrew Shaw, with a 7th round pick in 2020 to the Chicago Blackhawks for a 2nd round pick and […]

Top 4 Trade Talks: Is Nick Leddy Perfect Fit For Habs?

Here comes that time of year again where everything starts to heat up but forget the shorts and the flip flops because this time of year and the heat that comes with it is for the phone lines and negotiation tables.  The Montreal Canadiens may be in position to celebrate Canada Day by making a […]

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Jordie Benn

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Jordie Benn

The Montreal Canadiens have an interesting group staring down the free agency barrel; a baby faced Finnish assassin, a homegrown kid stuck in limbo, a size enriched enigma, a mobile blue liner on the right side of youth but the wrong side of recent fortunes and a depth guy that punched above his weight on the second pair.  All […]

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Brett Kulak

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Brett Kulak

There was plenty good reason to wait with this piece of the series.  There was a strong sense that Brett Kulak would land himself a new deal to remain in Montreal and it follows the same trend that the rest seem to be in that they could have paid him more and justified doing so […]

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Mike Reilly

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Mike Reilly

Now that the forward group has been rounded out in this series with the likes of Artturi Lehkonen, Charles Hudon and Joel Armia, here comes the back half of this series and –with it– the pending free agents on the back end.  Much ado has been made about the Canadiens defensive unit and with a plethora of options […]

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Joel Armia

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Joel Armia

From a “snake bit” youngster oozing maturity to a misfit skilled kid, it is an odd bunch due for renewal or release this summer in Montreal.  That being said, the oddest one in the bunch might just be one of the newer arrivals and he is certainly the most difficult one to nail down.   […]

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Charles Hudon

Canadiens Contractual Obligations: Charles Hudon

With the first part of this series tackling Artturi Lehkonen, it is not about to get easier.  The Montreal Canadiens have some decisions to make and while the verdicts of many may appear to be simple, ironing out the details and understanding why is sometimes more complex than it appears.  Recency bias and –conversely– legacy […]

Canadiens Re-Up Charles Hudon For One Year

Early this morning, the Canadiens announced that they signed Charles Hudon to a one-year, one-way contract ($800,000). Just like his fellow teammates Armia and Lehkonen, he avoided going to arbitration. His date set for August 2nd. This will be Hudon’s fourth season with the Montreal Canadiens having played his first professional season during the 2014-15 […]
