Top Canadiens Backups Price Has Had Under Bergevin

Top Canadiens Backups Price Has Had Under Bergevin

August 9th, 2020 Maybe, just maybe Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price needs another Jaroslav Halak. Following an impressive pre-first-round series victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Habs are flying high as an official playoff team. However, it's clear Price was the key difference-maker, which is a...

Since Andrei Markov's departure from the Montreal Canadiens in 2017, there has been a hole on the defensive left side that management has had a hard time filling. There is no one on the roster who can compare to Markov's two-way style, until maybe now. The Canadiens have a new Russian player who has the potential to become the next Markov: Alexander Romanov. Alexander Romanov, CSKA Moscow of the KHL. (Photo by Sergei SavostyanovTASS via Getty Images) You may be thinking it's a little too early to compare Romanov to Markov, and you're probably right. However, Romanov is potentially the closest defenseman the Canadiens have to their former All-Star. The keyword here is potentially. Romanov hasn't played a game yet, but will be practicing with the club during Phase 4 of the Return to Play plan. "The General" Markov was drafted by the Canadiens in the sixth round, 162nd overall, in 1998 as a 20-year-old. He played two seasons with Dynamo Moscow and was considered one of the...

Vegas Golden Knights

In today's NHL rumors rundown, there is news the Toronto Maple Leafs will be loaning a player currently in their bubble to the KHL, the Anaheim Ducks have made a signing, and the Golden Knights explain their decision not to bring Max Pacioretty into their bubble. The Detroit Red Wings will go goalie shopping and finally, has Dale Weise of the Montreal Canadiens signed a deal with another team while playing for the Habs? Maple Leafs to Loan Korshkov to KHL Toronto Maple Leafs forward Egor Korshkov may be part of the team’s current postseason roster, but he isn't likely to play much. Under contract for next season, it sounds like the Maple Leafs are going to loan Korskov out to the KHL. According to multiple sources, including Russian news source Sport24, Korshkov had planned to sign a contract with HC Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. That said, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman has updated the report, noting that instead of letting him sign, Korshkov will be loaned out rather than...

Just because he was just cut from training camp, it’s far from the end of the world for Montreal Canadiens defensive prospect Josh Brook. Sure, in an ideal world Brook would be on the fast track to superstardom as a member of the Habs. Instead of having been cut alongside forward Laurent Dauphin, Brook would be set to lace them up against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the two teams’ projected play-in series, scheduled to start this coming Saturday night. Brook vs. Weber It certainly wouldn’t be the craziest notion for a 21-year-old second-round draft pick to make an impact. For example, captain Shea Weber, who was drafted at No. 49 overall in 2003, made his NHL debut as a 20-year-old with the Nashville Predators. Of course, Brook (No. 56; 2017) is no Weber. It’s important to adjust expectations accordingly. Brook admittedly and impressively lit up opponents to the tune of 75 points in 59 games in...

Ottawa Senators

In today's NHL rumor rundown, there is good news on the testing front for the NHL as play gets underway Tuesday. The Boston Bruins got perhaps their biggest star back, while the Edmonton Oilers have spoken with one of their top prospects about returning. One scribe looks at the Ottawa free agent situation, and in Montreal, there are questions about Cary Price's job security if the Canadiens have a bad series. NHL Has No New Positive Tests With exhibition games set to begin Tuesday and with teams now in their bubbles and hub cities, there is good news for the NHL in terms of their virus testing. The league has confirmed zero new cases of COVID-19 in the past week. That means, between last Monday where only two tests were confirmed positive and yesterday's test results, all 24 teams seemed to successfully get into the isolated areas without issue. Considering MLB is having games canceled with regularity, that's...
