Top Canadiens Trade Chips Heading into 2020 Offseason
The Montreal Canadiens proved these past playoffs that they can hang with some of the best teams in the NHL. Becoming one is harder than flipping a switch, though. It likely means flipping a few assets instead. Thankfully, the Habs and general manager Marc Bergevin have several pieces to help them get there. Here are […]

Canadiens Get the Backup Goalie They Need in Allen
Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price finally has his Jaroslav Halak. He just goes by Jake Allen instead. After years of failing to properly insulate and rest Price, the Habs took a large step in the right direction by acquiring Allen from the St. Louis Blues. Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin got Allen and a 2022 […]

Canadiens Are Deepest at Left-Wing… for Now
It’s a paradox. Even though the Montreal Canadiens are arguably at their the deepest at left-wing, there’s a good chance it won’t stay that way for long… like not even past next season. Domi, Tatar Lead Habs in Theory Technically speaking, two of the Canadiens’ top three scorers during the regular season play on the […]
Top Canadiens Targets to Hypothetically Replace Danault
The best-case scenario for the Montreal Canadiens is clear with regard to No. 1 center Phillip Danault. Ideally, Danault will stay on past next season, when his contract expires, but what if he decides to move on, a distinct possibility at which he recently hinted? The Habs need to brace themselves in such an instance. […]

Canadiens Potentially Set at Center After Strong Playoffs
The Montreal Canadiens may still lack that big No. 1 center, eight years into general manager Marc Bergevin’s tenure. It remains to be seen if they still need one though. Kotkaniemi, Suzuki Help Lead Habs The 2020 playoffs taught us many things from the Habs’ perspective. For example, the experience of having lost in the […]

Canadiens Do Gallagher, Julien Proud in Series Loss to Flyers
All the Montreal Canadiens technically needed was one goal. They got two instead. Even if those goals came in defeat, as they lost their first-round series against the Philadelphia Flyers in a 3-2 Game 6, the Canadiens proved quite the point. Canadiens Bounce Back After Bad Start After opening up Game 6 in horrific fashion, […]

3 Takeaways from Canadiens’ Game 4 Shutout Loss to Flyers
The Montreal Canadiens may have exploded for five goals once upon a time against Philadelphia Flyers goalie Carter Hart. However, losing Game 4 by a second consecutive shutout, the Habs’ lone victory in this first-round series has never seemed so far away. Now, trailing the Flyers three games to one in this best-of-seven affair, the […]

Canadiens’ Mission Remains Unchanged Under Muller
In one game, Kirk Muller has technically already accomplished more, coaching the Montreal Canadiens than in three seasons doing the same for the Carolina Hurricanes. He probably wishes the accomplishment came under better circumstances, though. With head coach Claude Julien out until the end of the first round at least following surgery, Muller helped lead […]
Top Canadiens Storylines Heading into Round 1 vs. Flyers
Many might argue simply getting the chance to play the Philadelphia Flyers is worth the Stanley Cup to the Montreal Canadiens. They’d be wrong. Even if the Canadiens had virtually no chance of making the playoffs when the regular season ended, they are clearly in it to win it at this point. The fact that […]

Top Canadiens Backups Price Has Had Under Bergevin
Maybe, just maybe Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price needs another Jaroslav Halak. Following an impressive pre-first-round series victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Habs are flying high as an official playoff team. However, it’s clear Price was the key difference-maker, which is a usual formula for success or lack thereof of the lasting variety for […]

Montreal Canadiens Season Officially a Success with Playoff Berth
The end justifies the means. It doesn’t matter how the Montreal Canadiens got it done, but they officially accomplished what they set out to do at the onset of this abnormally long 2019-20 season: They made the playoffs. As a result, the campaign has to be considered a success. Yes, if you’re keeping track, the […]

Canadiens Need Price to Exorcise Playoff Demons
Compared to his regular-season success, Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price’s playoff record remains relatively spotty. That’s saying a lot. Yes, Price did capture the 2015 Hart Memorial and Vezina trophies and he’s consistently recognized by his peers as one of the best goalies in the game. Regardless, if the Canadiens fail to beat the Pittsburgh […]
Canadiens Prospect Brook Gets Cut but Not Overlooked
Just because he was just cut from training camp, it’s far from the end of Montreal Canadiens prospect Josh Brook’s world. Sure, in an ideal world Brook would be on the fast track to superstardom as a member of the Habs. Instead of having been cut alongside forward Laurent Dauphin, Brook would be set to […]

Likeliest Canadiens to Become Unlikely Playoff Heroes
Officially speaking, the Montreal Canadiens have not yet made the playoffs. However, the nature of their initial play-in series against the Pittsburgh Penguins undeniably presents the perfect opportunity for some to emerge as heroes, sometimes the unlikeliest of the bunch. If that’s not playoff hockey, what is? To drive the point home, remember Rene Bourque? […]

By Joining Canadiens Domi Is Taking an Unnecessary Risk
No one seems to have given Montreal Canadiens forward Max Domi the memo. After delaying his arrival at training camp, Domi, the Habs’ third-leading scorer, has now officially joined the team. In so doing, he has effectively put to bed any conspiracy theories the Canadiens are primed to phone it in against the Pittsburgh […]

Canadiens Owe Juulsen a Shot on Defense
It’s been over a year and a half since defenseman Noah Juulsen last played for the Montreal Canadiens. It’s about time he got in another game, arguably as soon as against the Pittsburgh Penguins during the two teams’ upcoming play-in series. Juulsen Recovers from Eye Injury Admittedly, there’s probably a degree of rust that’s set […]
Canadiens Don’t Necessarily Need Domi to Beat Penguins
It would be a big loss for the Montreal Canadiens to take on the Pittsburgh Penguins without forward Max Domi. It just wouldn’t necessarily equate to a loss in their projected play-in series, though. Anything Can Happen for Canadiens That almost goes without saying, really. The actual saying, which has effectively been adopted by the […]

Canadiens’ Best Deadline Move Was Not Trading Petry
Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin certainly took a lot of heat for an underwhelming and arguably confusing trade deadline. In retrospect, by hanging on to his best players, he gave the Habs a decent chance to make the playoffs. Bergevin Puts Habs in Good Spot Obviously, Bergevin is not psychic. If he were, the […]

Canadiens Gain Ground in Weber Trade with New CBA
Assessments of the Shea Weber, P.K. Subban trade are like candy. Everyone wants a piece, but once you ingest too much you’re bound to get sick. Changing circumstances, like the tentative Collective Bargaining Agreement, don’t exactly help matters, because just as you were getting used to it, the rug gets pulled out from under you. […]
Canadiens Need Kotkaniemi to Bounce Back vs. Penguins
It’s an exaggeration to suggest the Montreal Canadiens’ chances against the Pittsburgh Penguins in their play-in round rest on sophomore-forward Jesperi Kotkaniemi’s shoulders. Only a slight one though. Price Leads the Way for Canadiens Obviously, the Canadiens will look primarily to goalie Carey Price to steal a few games. Reports indicated Price was one reason […]
