Montreal Canadiens: The Biggest Problem

Montreal Canadiens: The Biggest Problem

Apparently, Michel Therrien hates seeing his practice on TV. I find that rather odd. Frankly, Michel seems to have forgotten what team he coaches. I was also unaware of the numerous media outlets who attend Canadiens’ practices. Silly me, and silly Michel; our minds are so little. Who are we to have no prior knowledge of […]

2014-15 Question Marks: Uncertainty Addressed

2014-15 Question Marks: Uncertainty Addressed

The usual expectation in the term of a general manager in the National Hockey League is that the first true glimpse of their vision is shown in year three of their tenure. For Marc Bergevin, this is that year and based on the moves made, a pivotal year it is going to be. The now […]

Part 2: Montreal Canadiens’ 2013-2014 Regular Season Studs and Duds

As with most teams in the NHL, the Montreal Canadiens went through a few bumps in the road en route to a successful 100-point regular season. Every player had their inconsistencies and frustrations over the course of the year. Some weren’t able to score for long stretches; others made costly turnovers in the defensive zone. […]

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

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 […]

Boyes 2 Men; Habs & Panthers Discussing a Trade?

Boyes 2 Men; Habs & Panthers Discussing a Trade?

With the 2014 Sochi Olympics now underway that doesn’t mean the rumours won’t continue to run rampant throughout the NHL, especially in Montreal. It is no secret that the Habs are in desperate need for a top line scorer and it is clear Bergevin is unwilling to truly “deal” for the teams’ top need (I.E Parenteau). However […]

Keep Calm When Gio’s On: Truth Be Told

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 […]

Myth Broken: Pacioretty Isn’t Just a Perimeter Player

Myth Broken: Pacioretty Isn’t Just a Perimeter Player

I tend to hear something along the lines of “Patches needs to wake up, drive to the net more and stop being an inefficient perimeter player” every game that the Habs seem to aimlessly float through or lose. It’s bothersome when fans pinpoint a single player to place the blame on. Especially when they’re wrong in […]

Habs Too Predictable

Habs Too Predictable

The Montreal Canadiens have played horribly for the past couple of weeks, is it because of the loss of Alexei Emelin or just poor play, perhaps the Habs have become too predictable? Yes, the Habs have lost Emelin, and since doing so lost their only real physical defenseman which is making the defensive zone look […]

Habs Trends: Building The Foundation Early (& Often)

Ever changing constants are an intriguing oxymoron and one that the hockey world lends itself to, whether it realizes that or not.  The Montreal Canadiens have been a visible case in point of just that in their first small handful of showcases to start the young season.  Early and often are the keynotes and they […]
