2016-17 Canadiens Season Review: Daniel Carr’s frustrating season only got worse as it went on

2016-17 Canadiens Season Review: Daniel Carr’s frustrating season only got worse as it went on

It was a season to forget for the feisty forward. The 2015-16 season was an incredibly frustrating one for the Montreal Canadiens after Carey Price went down to injury and the whole team seemed to collapse in near historic proportion. There were a few bright spots however, and one of them was the emergence of Daniel Carr as a feisty, straight-to-the-net kind of prospect that reminded fans of Brendan Gallagher. He was quickly embraced by the fans after just his first shift in the NHL. In 23 games he had six goals and three assists; very respectable for a rookie campaign. His season came to...

2016-17 Canadiens Season Review: Carey Price returned to health and stepped back in among the game’s elite

The Habs’ netminder returned to top form, but it still wasn’t enough. It’s pretty hard to imagine what wasn’t expected of Carey Price this season. His return from the knee injury that ended his previous campaign was a leading storyline for the entire NHL, let alone the Montreal faithful. After missing several games to open the season while he recovered from the flu, Price quieted any early doubts about his ability to return to his dominating form by notching 10 consecutive regulation wins to start the year. He finished the season with a 37-20-5 record, with an all-situations save...

Carey Price: Arizona Coyote. Making the impossible...possible?

Carey Price: Arizona Coyote. Making the impossible...possible?

After the Habs' playoff exit, some in Montreal want to trade Carey Price. They said they'd never trade him... but they've said that before. So, we ask the question, what price is Price? The Montreal Canadiens have once again bounced out of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and this has been greeted with the usual calm and rational response that you'd expect from a market that would never do anything silly like trade away a generational defenseman straight up for an albatross of a contra...*sees PK Subban still in the playoffs*...oh, yeah. But that doesn't mean that they'd make the same mistake...

Eyes on the Price: The end of the line

Defensive coverage was an issue that cost the Canadiens in game six And so it comes to an end... The New York Rangers ended the Canadiens’ season Saturday evening in Madison Square Garden with a 3-1 victory in Game 6 of their opening round playoff series, taking the series 4-2. Carey Price will have to wait another year for a chance at a Stanley Cup run, and Henrik Lundqvist further cemented his reputation as an all-time great postseason performer. If you’re going to steal a game, you need a little luck. When Alexei Emelin stepped up into a loose puck created by Philip Danault and Alex...

Artturi Lehkonen emerges onto the big stage

Artturi Lehkonen emerges onto the big stage

The rookie forced his way into the lineup this season, and will remain there for years to come. Before the season there weren’t many followers of the Montreal Canadiens who had a good understanding of what Artturi Lehkonen would bring to a team on the verge of a Stanley Cup run. The team would be getting back Carey Price, the best goaltender in the world. It had also traded a world-class defender for another world-class defender and had signed the most interesting free agent available in Alexander Radulov. A small Finnish player who’s name that no one really could pronounce wasn’t...
