Thursday Habs Headlines: Mark Streit signing raises questions about Andrei Markov’s future

Here are your daily links, including the return of Mark Streit, Alex Galchenyuk’s offensive contributions, and Daniel Carr’s chances of making the roster. Montreal Canadiens news and notes Eric Engels suggests that the signing of Mark Streit makes the return of Andrei Markov less likely than before. [SN] With the large amount of moves made on the back end since the season ended, one thing is clear: the Habs will have a lot less offence from the blue line going forward. [L’actualité] Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher led the way for the Habs when it came to carrying the puck...

Andrei Markov is on the verge of accomplishing a rare feat

Andrei Markov is on the verge of accomplishing a rare feat

A momentous milestone is within reach for the defender. Andrei Markov is on the verge of hitting an incredible milestone should he come to terms with the Montreal Canadiens for the upcoming season. He is currently 10 games shy of playing 1000 games with the Habs, and would become the first to hit that milestone since Bob Gainey. It would be an incredible accomplishment in this day and age of professional hockey, where players tend to change teams in pursuit of lucrative contracts, while teams have to juggle the restrictions of a salary cap. If Markov were to hit the 1,000-game milestone, he...

Mark Streit Is No Andrei Markov

Don’t let the “Mark” in Andrei Markov’s last name fool you. He and Mark Streit are two different players. In spite of their similarities, being that they are both left-handed, both have worn Montreal Canadiens jerseys in the past and both, uh, play hockey, Streit is not a suitable replacement for Markov. Not by a […]

Top 5 one-and-done Canadiens: #4 Marc-André Bergeron

The power play specialist was a last minute addition to the team thanks to an injury to Andrei Markov In this series we look at the top five Canadiens since the year 2000 who made the biggest impact on the team in their only season of play on the team. #4- Marc-André Bergeron (2009-2010), 34 points Shortly into the 2009-2010 season, the Canadiens found themselves in a massive jam having lost Andrei Markov to a severed tendon in his foot. They reached out to free agent Marc-André Bergeron on October 6th to fill the void. Bergeron played for four different team in four years and was on the...
A resurgent Tomas Plekanec could be the boost the Canadiens need

A resurgent Tomas Plekanec could be the boost the Canadiens need

The play of the long-time Hab will be under the microscope when the new season begins. Marc Bergevin is nothing if not eminently quotable, so it was no surprise that he dropped a few choice nuggets at his most recent press conference regarding Andrei Markov and Alexander Radulov. Perhaps the best cut was concerning whether players should feel indebted or attached to organizations, especially when getting the chance to re-establish as an NHLer. “If you want loyalty,” said the GM, “get a dog.” The hard line was a precursor to Radulov leaving for greener pastures in a green jersey,...

Markov Should Be in a Habs Jersey by Now

The time for the Montreal Canadiens to play hardball with Andrei Markov is over. There might never have been a good time, but what’s done is done, and general manager Marc Bergevin has no other choice but to give into Markov’s admittedly high demands of $6 million over each of the next two years. First […]

Montreal Canadiens news and notes: Charles Hudon is simply in another tier compared to the rest of the Habs prospects straddling the AHL-NHL border. [Mitch Brown] If Alex Galchenyuk makes it to training camp, could he start the season at centre? [TSN 690] According to Tony Marinaro, Andrei Markov will be a Hab if he yields to the team’s demands.
