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. Well, he’s wrong; there is such a thing as too much depth. Given Montreal’s situation on defence and their bottom six, the amount of depth signings/trades […]

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. Not only does the 5’11” forward have a reputation as a sniper, he’s a legitimately talented playmaker who creates lanes like few prospects can. In any given year, glancing over the NHL’s top scorers is generally filled with multidimensional offensive […]

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #9 Victor Mete

Sometimes, it might not be immediately clear why a talented prospect went lower than expected in the draft class. It could be as simple as every team having one prospect higher, or as complex as off-ice issues. But if there has been one type of prospect consistently going lower than expected, but immediately outperforming their […]

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #10 William Bitten

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #10 William Bitten

At first glance of the statistics, William Bitten had a season of regression. A 30-goal scorer on a Flint Firebirds team that gained infamy for the side show entered the season with plenty of hype. This was only escalated after a trade to the Hamilton Bulldogs, a better team, reuniting Bitten with head coach John […]
