Habsland is always equipped with its own view of the universe. The Brain Trust added a couple pieces, let Hamerlik walk, but didn’t seem able to dump any of its more unfortunate contracts when teams were dying to get to the cap floor, nor did they seem too keen on any of their prospects.

Carey Price had the type of year last season that should fill every Canadiens fan with glee. He played a huge number of games, put up great numbers and then improved them in the post season.

PK Subban has is entering his second full season in the NHL. With a very solid 38 points on an offensively challenged team he’s clearly got the goods to juice the offense almost at will. With 124 PIMS that included 2 ten minute misconducts, nine tripping calls and six slashing infractions discipline is something he’s going to have to tighten up. With increased powerplay time expected and a full year for the coaches to access him its clear he’ll be given enough rope to hang himself or succeed as he can.
