Montreal Canadiens: Return to Respectability

Montreal Canadiens: Return to Respectability

After 51 games played, leading into the NHL all star weekend, which is followed by the Canadiens’ annual week long break, the team sits at number 9 in points throughout the entire league. Not bad for a group that was destined to hover around the bottom of the standings for the next few years. And […]

Habs Rapid Fire: The First 51

Ah, the bye week… a time for a little bit of reflection, a little bit more contemplation, perhaps bit of catching up on the neglected or postponed facets of one’s life and perhaps just a dash of “what the hell am I going to do with myself until February?!”   With the first 51 games […]

Learning on the Fly

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. From an underwhelming off-season which saw a virtual complete overhaul of the team’s defensive corpse to the lack of scoring, this has been a disappointing season to date. The positive thing for […]

State Of The Franchise Address: Canadiens Questionable Start

State Of The Franchise Address: Canadiens Questionable Start

My fellow observers,   It has come to the attention of many that the Canadiens 2017-18 season thus far has been a tumultuous one.  Losses, many undeserved but others earned; victories, narrow in measure and grand in doing little more than raising additional questions.  What we have here is failure to sustain a franchise’s strengths […]

Is Victor Mete the Reason Mikhail Sergachev Was Traded?

Is Victor Mete the Reason Mikhail Sergachev Was Traded?

After trading Subban last year, not re-signing Markov, losing Emelin to Vegas (now in Nashville) and trading Beaulieu to Buffalo, it is crazy to think that Montreal would trade a future top defenseman for a French superstar and not have a backup plan on defense. Marc Bergevin has been known for making questionable trades over […]

Drouin It Right: Canadiens Acquire Jonathan Drouin For Mikhail Sergachev

Drouin It Right: Canadiens Acquire Jonathan Drouin For Mikhail Sergachev

What if I told you that there was a young, lethally offensively skilled, Quebec born forward with a 20+ goal scoring punch just two years into his NHL career, a proven playoff performer with an edge and that the best from him is yet to come?   …Now what if I told you that he […]

Could Jonathan Drouin Land in Montreal?

Could Jonathan Drouin Land in Montreal?

About halfway through the 1st frame of the Canadiens vs Devils game, CTV’s Brian Wilde caused fans to go into a panic with this tweet: BREAKING: HABS CH I can confirm from a strong source the Habs are aggressively pursuing Drouin. — BrianWilde (@BWildeCTV) January 7, 2016 Following Wilde’s Drouin bomb, Eric Engels of Sportsnet said this: […]

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 […]
