Many have asked the question, but we may never find out the exact answer: Why not a Taylor Hall for P.K. Subban trade between the Montreal Canadiens and Edmonton Oilers? Logically speaking, it just wouldn't have worked out for the Habs. That Fateful Day The above question has consistently come in response to the two one-for-one blockbusters...

All signs point to the Montreal Canadiens being done making major moves this offseason, but they shouldn’t be. Granted, they’ve made enough big deals to last a decade… speaking in general manager Marc Bergevin time anyway. However, there are plenty of holes that still need to be filled. Many might even argue the biggest hole is now...

It’s a sad state of affairs when the best-case scenario for Montreal Canadiens fans is that the team’s front office internally acknowledges its defense got worse following the P.K. Subban trade.

And it isn’t as much an indictment of Shea Weber as much as it is of Habs management. Cold, Hard Stats Weber proponents and Subban detractors who consider...

The first rule of the Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club? Apparently to talk about it as much as you want, just in half-truths and cryptic language. That’s at least the perception many Habs fans are getting recently, having to deal with general manager Marc Bergevin, who, even at his most candid, seems like he’s keeping his cards close to...

In 2015-16, the Montreal Canadiens saw an influx of new faces step into their lineup. This was mostly all due to the injury-riddled season that the Habs had, which saw the likes of Carey Price, Brenden Gallagher and Jeff Petry out of the lineup for extended periods of time. This gave many prospects a chance to step in and show the Canadiens what...

A preliminary word of warning: This is not a piece for faint-of-heart Habs fans. That’s even if the main takeaway is the Montreal Canadiens are primed to compete for the Stanley Cup this coming 2016-17 season. Stanley Cup Contenders?
