Stanley Cup Playoffs Game 1 – Canadiens vs. Lightning: Notes and Numbers

The Summary  I presume everyone has finally relaxed. Game 1 between the Lightning and Canadiens took place last night on April 16th, 2014. If you missed the tilt, you also missed some exceptional Canadiens hockey, as well an emotional rollercoaster filled with strangely placed ups and downs. By my count, I died 4 times and […]

If I Was Michel Therrien for a Game

If I Was Michel Therrien for a Game

The stress of being an NHL coach is probably immeasurable; especially if it’s a job patrolling the Montreal Canadiens’ bench. This fan base is relentless.

Keep Calm When Gio’s On: Truth Be Told

It’s come to my attention in a big way that there is a disproportionately large number of fans among us who have really been bashing Canadiens’ captain Brian Gionta this season. I’ve heard he’s injury prone, he’s too old, he’s too small, he isn’t producing, cap hit’s too high etc. Essentially, I’ve heard a list of subjective […]

Everything Is Rosey: Habs Extend Jacob De La Rose

Who says the St. Louis Blues are snapping up all of the centers this side of John Tavares? The Show Me State may be showing their money in hoards following a big (losing) trade for Ryan O’Reilly and the far too generous signing of now former rival Tyler Bozak but The Swedish Sensation Jacob de […]
