Sometimes Less is More: Media Coverage in Montreal

If you look at the media coverage on the Montreal Canadiens, fans are practically showered with news on their beloved team. Speaking as a fan, I particularly enjoy insightful, in-depth analyses on the teams’ successes, failures, and the seasonal controversies that come with being a player for the Montreal Canadiens. The other day, however, I […]

Almost Halfway There

Here we are midway through the season and your Montreal Canadiens are currently sitting in third place in the Atlantic Division with 49 points and, as we speak, own the fourth playoff seed in the Eastern Conference. With a record of 23-14-3, it is difficult to say that the Habs had an unsuccessful first half, […]

Montreal Canadiens Trade Baits

            There’s always rumours, most have nothing to it. Although when I hear something from someone a little more reputable, you start to put stock into it. There have been some grumblings around the Habs that hold a little more weight to it. Max Pacioretty for example, although rumours got […]

The Helmet – Hockey’s Worst Enemy?

Public Enemy #1 – the hockey helmet – be on the lookout. Come on, how can a hockey helmet be a villain – helmets save lives and protect from injuries, don’t they? Read on sports fans. I was having a conversation with a buddy of mine (thanks Graham) regarding the epidemic of concussions, injuries and […]

Montreal Canadiens: The Time is Now

Well… after the holiday trade freeze ends to be more precise. After the Habs went on a nice run from the middle of November to the middle of December, they’ve done a complete 180 since then. They can’t score, can’t defend, can’t win and can’t even fight. They look lost, small and slow. I’m not […]

Captain Josh Gorges At Your Service

Who would have thought that the trade that sent Craig Rivet to San Jose in 2007 would prove to be one of the smartest moves made by then general manager Bob Gainey? Firstly, they acquired a first-round draft pick that turned out to be Max Pacioretty, who forms the cornerstone of the Montreal Canadiens’ offense. […]

The Genesis of Insanity

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction – that’s Newton’s Third Law of Motion. Okay, so now you’re going to give us a physics lesson? Not really. What I’m going to do is explain the epidemic of cheap shots, dirty hits and concussions in the NHL. Read on. I love to see teams win […]

Name: Charles Hudon Position: Left Wing Draft Rank: 5th round 122nd Overall in 2012 Currently plays for: Chicoutimi Saguenéens Stats:  […]

Should George Parros think about his future with the Montreal Canadiens?

George Parros, you hear the name, and most of us know who he is. A hard hitting 4th line enforcer that will stick up for his teammates when necessary, and who wouldn’t recognize that stash?  The question I’m asking you is “should the former Princeton graduate, who majored in economics, think about hanging up his […]
