The Next Captain of the Montreal Canadiens?

13th
Sep. × ’14

When the Montreal Canadiens punted Brian Gionta and Josh Georges the team not only dumped their most recent captain but two thirds of their most visible leaders. On and off the ice in good seasons, bad stretches of team play, and when coaching came complete with three rings, a master of ceremonies and a big […]

Most In Need Of Fines: NHL Diving Rule Change

11th
Sep. × ’14

It’s not a secret that I despise diving. I’ve written the odd piece on the subject, once or twice (ok so its actually an enormous bugaboo that I prattle on about pretty often ) and I’m pretty happy with the NHL finally taking steps to control the dippy soccer like behavior of some players and […]

About That Top Defensemen’s List

7th
Sep. × ’14

NHL.com released a list of the top 14 defensemen in the NHL. While I’m not surprised by any names on the final list, I am a bit dismayed by one or two or at least where they placed. And I’m pleased as can be about one semi-notable exclusion. One name I’d put in, instead of […]

Setting the Payscale: RFA’s Who Filed Pt 1

5th
Jul. × ’14

While correlation is not causation, it is interesting to note how many of the players who filed for arbitration are doing so as part of teams that have rather small amounts of cap space per player left and the need to fill multiple spots. The NHLPA put out this list of men who filed to […]

Keys To The Series: Bruins versus Canadiens

10th
May. × ’14

We’re four games into the latest battle in a playoff war that stretches back to before the grandparents of several players on either side were born. We’ve seen one goaltender continue a career year, one defensemen further etch his name into league history, a call up redefine the series with a single shot, and a […]

4th
May. × ’14

With each first round series begun, it is time to take our first serious look at who might be carrying around the extra hardware this summer. Before we get to the men still playing there are some honorable mentions that had individually stellar first rounds. Out west that list is headed by pending UFA Paul […]

Powerplays Proving Costly

20th
Apr. × ’14

It is a truism in sports; football, and hockey most of all that defense wins championships. We’ve seen it year after year. This year it seems to be adding a wrinkle to itself. Powerplays are costing teams games. Not by failing to produce, but by favoring offense so heavily, they aren’t prepared to play responsibly. […]

The Matchups: Lightning And Canadiens

16th
Apr. × ’14

At multiple points this season a matchup between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens was unthinkable. Carey Price was injured, Steven Stamkos was injured, and the teams downfalls were predicted at those points and others. Yet here we are, the oldest club in the NHL is facing off with a team that while significantly […]

Canadiens Need One Thing

11th
Nov. × ’13

The Montreal Canadiens are only lacking one thing to keep them from being a top team in the NHL. They have a goaltender in Carey Price who is more than doing his part. A .929 sv% is more than many teams can hope for from their starter. Doing it in 15 of 18 games, which […]
