Habs Deal Kassian to Oilers for Scrivens

Habs Deal Kassian to Oilers for Scrivens

The Montreal Canadiens told Zack Kassian not to report to the St. John’s IceCaps after assigning him there once he was active again. This kicked off rumours in every direction until Elliotte Friedman suggested two different paths: San Jose Sharks and Edmonton Oilers. The path was narrowed even further by Friedman by noticing that Ben […]

Wednesday Ramblings: Plekanec, the PK and Desharnais

Wednesday Ramblings: Plekanec, the PK and Desharnais

Every Wednesday we’ll look at semi-established themes over the past week, developing ones, and any other plots or irregularities that jump out. Another week, another undefeated record. The Canadiens have strung together three straight victories since last week’s ramble to bring their record to an astounding 7-0-0. It was neat last week, but I believe […]

Montreal Canadiens: de la Rose Ready for NHL

Montreal Canadiens: de la Rose Ready for NHL

It was announced last week on October 6th that rookie Jacob de la Rose had been-assigned to St. John’s. This move occurred shortly after the Canadiens claimed speedy Calgary Flames’ 4th liner Paul Byron off waivers. This move doesn’t sit well with me and below you will find out why. Last season, when centre Lars […]

Montreal Canadiens: Asset Management

Montreal Canadiens: Asset Management

There seems to be a lot of division between Habs fans on the Kassian/Prust trade, and I’m not exactly sure why, so I felt the need to examine it further: In Kassian, the Habs receive a solid offensive RW who has the potential (not guarantee) to blossom into a 2nd liner (maybe 3rd liner), makes […]

Fantasy Team: Who Would You Take in the Cap Era?

Fantasy Team: Who Would You Take in the Cap Era?

It sucks a lot to watch hockey once your team is out. Having to endure the cup finals with all the excitement of Lord Stanley’s mug being handed over to a team that isn’t yours. It’s almost as if that girl (or guy) you’ve always dreamed of marrying is now on public television marrying your classmate […]

Playoff Performers: Familiar Forwards

Playoff Performers: Familiar Forwards

The emerging pattern or trend this year is that many of the players that stayed on board with the Montreal Canadiens this season were some of the best post-season performers last year.  The reasons for this are evident and the departures of 2014 have yet to really amount to very much.  Thomas Vanek has been hot […]

Brandon Prust: A Leader Without a Letter

Brandon Prust: A Leader Without a Letter

Since the beginning of the infamous west coast road trip to California earlier this month, the Canadiens’ record is 5-4-3, which is hardly a good record for the top team in the league. Yet, they are winning the Presidents’ trophy race. It’s amazing what one single man with pads on his legs can do for […]

Dale Weise Deployment: The Answers Are Obvious

Just because the answers are more obvious than the general public might perceive does not necessarily mean they are so simple.  Dale Weise and his deployment might seem like a confusing situation but with a touch of observation and a memory with a longer term than the last game or the last shift, everything becomes […]
