2016 NHL Entry Draft Lotteries: Odds, procedure, schedule, and how to watch

Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's draft lotteries. With the Montreal Canadiens not part of this year's playoff action, the draft lottery is the next exciting event on the calendar for Habs fans. Though they are far from guaranteed to win one of the big prizes, they definitely have a shot at moving up in the draft. The last time the Canadiens had a top-three selection was the 2013 draft, when they used the third-overall pick to bring Alex Galchenyuk into the organization. Before that, you'd have to rewind all the way to the 2005 draft to find the last time Montreal benefitted...

Montreal Canadiens end of year press conference highlights

The locker room clearout gave the Canadiens a chance to talk about the last season Please note that we will be updating this post as the quotes come in this morning. Alex Galchenyuk had some interesting things to say about his season. He suffered a broken hand against the Los Angeles Kings on March 3 when a puck hit his hand. He also talked about whether or not he has proven he is a top line center: Galchenyuk on playing centre full time: "It's not for me to decide.

The Montreal Canadiens will draft ninth in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, pending results of lotteries

Montreal will get a high pick in this year's draft after the poor season, but the actual position will not be known until the dust settles after the draft lotteries. The 2015-16 season came to an end for the Montreal Canadiens last night. The final result was a convincing win, and a sweep of the four-game series over the Tampa Bay Lightning. After starting the season 9-0-0, that wasn't the way they were expecting to finish off their year. Alex Galchenyuk scored two goals to reach the 30-goal mark for the first time in his career, being one of the best goal-scorers down the stretch in the...

Ten takeaways from the Canadiens vs Lightning game: Riding out the storm

In the final game of the season, the Habs show exactly what we knew they were capable of all along. 1, Alex Galchenyuk Will always be one of the brightest athletes on this team. While it was Brendan Gallagher who managed to fight for the puck and get it out in front, Galchenyuk saw it all the way and batted it in. Please never rip these two apart ever again. Add Max Pacioretty to the mix and our top line is so legit, it hurts (other teams' confidence). Galchenyuk has more than proved he is the top-line centre we had been 'lacking.' There is absolutely no reason for him to be slotting in...

The season sweep is complete, the Habs end a miserable season on a high note, and Max Pacioretty and Alex Galchenyuk are 30-goal scorers.

Can Pacioretty and Galchenyuk hit 30? This is my last TSM in my first year with EOTP. Thank you everyone! As hellish as this season was, I'll miss this team so much. First Period For a change the forward lines look respectable from top to bottom. Right off the...

2015-16 Game 80: Montreal Canadiens vs. Florida Panthers

Only days removed from an epic collapse, can the Habs rebound against the same opponent? Only two nights ago, the Montreal Canadiens played a great half-game before suffering an epic collapse. Now, even further undermanned, they'll try to play a whole one. To do that, the Canadiens will need the one big advantage they had last game. The newly-minted first line of Max Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk, and Brendan Gallagher were as-advertised, and Montreal's most consistent offensive force. Together, they generated just under half of Montreal's scoring chances for the game. Of course, the Habs...
