Does Fighting Have Its Place?

Does Fighting Have Its Place?

One game, two fights and all hell is breaking loose. Thanks to the unfortunate fall of Canadiens enforcer George Parros during his second tilt against the Leafs face-puncher Orr, which led to the Habs forward landing on his face after a take down and a concussion, another debate about the place fighting has in hockey […]

Player Performances: Game #5 of Pre-Season

Player Performances: Game #5 of Pre-Season

Due to the fact everyone wants a piece of me (as if), I haven’t been around to write-up the past 2 pre-season games. By a twist of fate, I was able to watch  Pre-Season game #4….. Good game. Good game. Although the record of the pre-season doesn’t matter, the performances of the players can very […]

Player Performances: Game #2 of Pre-Season

Player Performances: Game #2 of Pre-Season

Okay so we lost a 2nd game. Well guess what Bruins…it doesn’t count! Muahahaha, suckers! Anyway, today we saw almost a completely new roster, with different prospects from yesterday and the previous game. A couple of players returned, but most stayed out. As round 2 of players stepped in, we saw a very different game. […]

Player Performances: Game #1 of Pre-Season

After a long wait…..let me emphasize that….a VERY LONG wait, we got to witness our Habs back on the ice for the first time in several months.

You know it can happen to you.” – Brendan Gallagher   Various observations, forms of research and statistical projections have attempted to size up the slump of second year superstars but there is some x-factor, some intangible that often times enables it to wriggle free […]

The Habs Employ a Crazy Amount of Talented Youth

The Habs Employ a Crazy Amount of Talented Youth

It has been a bit of time since we’ve witnessed numerous international squads invite players from Les Canadiens organization; some teams inviting more than one Hab. As a proud Canadian, not even Alex Galchenyuk and Max Pacioretty would persuade me to root for team USA, even up against a Price/Subbanless Team Canada (it would be […]

Why the Douglas Murray Signing has Only Upside for the Montreal Canadiens

Why the Douglas Murray Signing has Only Upside for the Montreal Canadiens

  Four points why the Douglas Murray signing has great implications on the Habs:   1. Great value (opportunism/fit): He signed at 1.5 million, which is 1 million less than he made on his last deal.
