2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #1 Ryan Poehling

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #1 Ryan Poehling

A highlight reel often inflates the perception of a player’s ability. It makes sense, as a selection of highlights are the best players the player made that season, but lacking in nuance. The opposite has happened to 2017’s 25th overall pick Ryan Poehling. Nowhere will you find a smattering of gorgeous plays by Poehling. Instead, […]

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #2 Noah Juulsen

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #2 Noah Juulsen

While the raw production never took off, Noah Juulsen ends his junior career as a terrific player on both sides of the puck. The fourth-year blue liner took both his offensive and defensive games to new heights this season. Juulsen’s 0.31 5v5 P1/GP was among the WHL’s best blue liners, and he took home WHL […]

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

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: #5 Charles Hudon

Not only did Charles Hudon emerge as a top-notch AHL goalscorer, among U24 players he was firmly within the elite. Hudon’s ES G/GP ranked in the 99th percentile, while his G/PG and SOG/GP were in the 95th and 93rd percentiles, respectively. Not only was this his third consecutive season of highly impressive AHL play, it […]

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #7 Michael McCarron

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #7 Michael McCarron

This was a complex season for Michael McCarron. The 6’6″ forward got off to a slow start in the AHL, and was generally unimpressive in the NHL. Yet, there are still reasons to be optimistic about McCarron’s chances of carving out an NHL career. When he was on, he was able to dominate AHL games. […]

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #9 Victor Mete

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 […]

Montreal Canadiens 2016-2017 Projected Lineup

  Marc Bergevin has been one of the most active general managers this off-season. He added a few key players that fit the style of team he’s looking for – a team that’s bigger, stronger and difficult to play against. Additions: Shea Weber, Andrew Shaw, Zach Redmond, Alexander Radulov and Al Montoya Notable Subtractions: P.K. Subban […]

Profiling the Montreal Canadiens’ 2016 NHL Draft Picks

Profiling the Montreal Canadiens’ 2016 NHL Draft Picks

The Montreal Canadiens began the NHL Draft with a bang, trading Lars Eller for two second rounders and then trading their two second in this year’s class for Andrew Shaw. At number nine, they snagged Mikhail Sergachev, who I believe was the best player available. Although it initially stung to lose a pair of second […]
