It’s easy to look back with regret in retrospect. After having seen yet another first-round pick switch organizations, with defenseman Noah Juulsen having just been claimed off waivers, the Montreal Canadiens may be on the verge of second-guessing themselves. They shouldn't. Canadiens Take a Chance Truth be told, if there was ever going to be a season in which Juulsen would have slipped through, it probably would have been this one. With so many teams experiencing cap trouble, the Canadiens included to the point that coach Claude Julien said at a training-camp presser they’d only be able to keep 21 players, the argument is the Habs were right to try. There had been a theoretical alternative. It involved having Paul Byron help form the Canadiens’ taxi squad and waiving him instead. Considering Byron’s $3.4 million cap hit and the fourth-line role he is projected to play (beside Jake Evans and Artturi...

Toronto Maple Leafs

In today’s NHL rumor rundown, expect a huge amount of players to hit the waiver wire today. one story to watch out of Florida might be what’s going on with Keith Yandle. Will he continue his Iron Man streak? What is the story with Brad Marchand's injury? Is he ready to return or did he try to come back too soon? The Edmonton Oilers may be concerned about their goaltending depth and the Toronto Maple Leafs third line center experiment with Pierre Engvall seems to be over. NHL Changes LTIR Rules Last Minute As per a report by TSN's Frank Seravalli on Monday morning, the NHL has informed teams that if any changes are made to the submitted Tuesday rosters on Wednesday (for LTIR purposes), it will count as if they were originally submitted on Tuesday.

Montreal Canadiens

In this week’s Montreal Canadiens News & Rumors rundown, we’ll break down waiver moves, Pierre-Luc Dubois trade rumors, standings predictions, Order of Canada awards, Guy Lapointe's return to health and more. Standings Predictions Evolving Wild, an account that is an offshoot of Evolving Hockey, which builds its predictive models using advanced statistics, made a prediction for the standings this season. Surprising to some, they have the Montreal Canadiens finishing first in the North Division.  One stat that jumps out in this prediction is that there is only a 10-point spread between first and sixth place in the division. While the prediction may not come true exactly as laid out, this does point to just how tight of a race the North Division is likely to be. Any team that suffers an injury to a star player could be in trouble. That’s where depth comes into play. Brain Wilde of Global News, who...
