An Apology to Marc Bergevin

An Apology to Marc Bergevin

Hello Marc, It has been a long time since I wrote to you; and it was not a message of good intent. In late June of 2016, I lambasted you and your staff for moves that were then, and can still be viewed now as poor examples of asset management. This previous letter was formed […]

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.

Habs Blue Line: Analyzing the Left Side

Habs Blue Line: Analyzing the Left Side

After six seasons and what seems to be more roster moves than he recorded points in his 1191 game career (181 if you were wondering); it seems Marc Bergevin has finally laid down the groundwork to a foundation the organization can move forward with.

Game Three Recap: Canadiens 3 Rangers 1

  Coming off an exhilarating 4-3 overtime win Friday night, the Canadiens headed into Broadway looking to take their first lead of the series.

Defensive Depth: Who’s In The Top-6 Going Into Game One?

Defensive Depth: Who’s In The Top-6 Going Into Game One?

After a busy trade deadline of adding stability at the back-end, we now get to see if that depth will pay dividends for the Montreal Canadiens. Looking at the depth chart, the Habs have, in my opinion, 9 NHL-calibre defencemen that can be of use. The likes of the lineup locks; Shea Weber, Andrei Markov, […]

Wake Up, Shake Up: Habs Must Smell The Coffee

There is a firestorm growing across Montreal.  Everything is tightening up and so too is the pressure cooker when God knows with how the season started and how the team was supposed to look at this point, it never should have come about.  Alas, here we stand and the reality of the scenario that the […]
