Learning on the Fly

2017-18 Season to Date To say that the 2017-18 season has been a roller-coaster ride for the Habs would be a vast understatement.

State Of The Franchise Address: Canadiens Questionable Start

State Of The Franchise Address: Canadiens Questionable Start

Strong Start for Sekac

Strong Start for Sekac

Jiri Sekac is a member of the Montreal Canadiens 2014-15 roster to keep an  eye on. No, he is not necessarily a Calder Memorial Trophy candidate for rookie of the year but many of the better players in this league do not have that piece of hardware. The Czech-born, 22-year old currently sits tied for […]
