There’s no question the Montreal Canadiens got themselves a bargain, signing Alexander Radulov this summer. Where he’ll fit into the lineup is a different matter altogether, though. Now that he’s officially met the Montreal media for the first time, it’s perhaps time to ask it. In fact, that specific question, i.e., where he should...

Montreal Canadiens superstar goalie Carey Price kicked off the 2015-16 season playing just like he did in 2014-15, at an incredibly high level.

When David Perron signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the St. Louis Blues this off-season, it seemed fitting. Perron was originally drafted by the Blues in the 1st round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft before being traded to the Edmonton Oilers, and subsequently being traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins and Anaheim Ducks. A homecoming of...
