Deadweight Acquisitions Stunting Prospect Growth

Deadweight Acquisitions Stunting Prospect Growth

    One thing general manager Marc Bergevin has been adamant about since the beginning of his tenure in Montreal is that you can never have too much depth.

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #3 Nikita Scherbak

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #3 Nikita Scherbak

Few prospects have captivated me like Scherbak. He’s a dynamic force with endless creativity and size, but after “tantalizing” the next word that comes to mind is “frustrating.” These “two Scherbaks” are often visible in the same game. One shift, Scherbak will steal the puck and dominate the remainder of his shift in the offensive […]

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #4 Joni Ikonen

If one prospect in the Canadiens organization who exemplifies multidimensionality in attack, it’s Joni Ikonen.

In any given year, glancing over the NHL’s top scorers is generally filled with multidimensional offensive […]

After a steady rise throughout the season, Josh Brook enters the prospect pool as one of the organization’s most promising rearguards. Brook has been on the radar for years.

Montreal Canadiens: Worst 10 Trades Since 1993

Last week I counted down the 10 best trades the organization had made since last winning the Stanley Cup in 1993. It’s only fitting that I should examine the other side of the coin and list off what I see as the 10 worst trades in the same time span. Maybe a disclaimer should be […]
