Habs Eyes On The Prize Nov 14, 2015

The Man They Call Dutch Gretzky

Percival is an excellent example of a knight, going from backwoods-nobody to one of King Arthur's best. Montreal isn't Camelot, and Dale Weise isn't Percival, but so far, his story is about as good. Minutes after Dale Weise arrived in Montreal on a flight from Vancouver, he told the cameras of 24CH that if they went to his room at his parents' house in Winnipeg, they'd find it covered with Montreal Canadiens stuff. When he arrived, no one thought he'd be much more than a gritty third- or fourth-liner, with limited scoring and moderate face-punching ability. My friend and I decided that he...

What does Just Abdelkader's contract mean for Dale Weise?

Weise is heading for a big contract, Condon's scrambles, and a troubling trend with scoring chances. Dale Weise vs Justin Abdelkader With the news that the Detroit Red Wings signed Abedlkader to a massive seven-year $29.75M contract, concerns over Weise's upcoming unrestricted free agent status this summer have surfaced. While it's true that Abdelkader has produced a better points per game ratio in the NHL, at 0.34, compared to Weise's 0.25, Abdelkader is currently riding a wave that was created thanks to his 23 goal season last year, which was paired with an incredibly inflated 14.9%...

Dale Weise injured, returns immediately.

He may, or may not be the second coming of Max Pacioretty. Dale Weise is one of the hottest goal scorers in the NHL right now, but a scary moment during the second period against the Penguins looked to spell some bad news for the Canadiens' forward. During a second period powerplay, Weise was tied up in the corner, Ben Lovejoy fell on the back of his leg, and it was clear right away that something was wrong. He struggled mightily to get back to the Canadiens' bench, and needed help from there to get back to the room. The following GIF may be slightly disturbing if you've ever had your leg...

Reeling Islanders clubbed by Canadiens

MONTREAL — Unfortunately for the Islanders, Dale Weise has never been so hot, all least in the NHL.

Canadiens vs. Islanders second period thread

Dale Weise scored his 8th to give the Habs a 1-0 lead. The 1st period began as a heavily defensive affair, with only 4 attempts registered in the first 7 seven minutes. The pace started to pick up around the 10-minute mark, but most stays in the offensive zone for both teams were brief, resulting in a constant counter-attacking flow. The latter stages of the 1st period resulted in two Canadiens powerplays, which gave them the charge to completely take over the game. Jaroslav Halak had faced 7 shots on 18 shot attempts before Dale Weise tipped in his team-leading 8th goal of the season on...

Canadiens vs. Senators third period thread

The Habs and Sens are tied 1-1 heading into the 3rd period. The Canadiens gave up the first goal of the game for the third time this season on a shorthanded goal by none other than Jean-Gabriel Pageau who intercepted the puck on shot P.K. Subban fanned on. The Habs wouldn't score on the remaining powerplay time, but would get a chance to put their NHL's 6th best powerplay to work again moments later. With powerplay specialists like Dale Weise on the job, the Canadiens converted to tie the game 1-1 on a perfect cross-crease set up from Alex Galchenyuk to Weise for a tap-in. Weise's 7th goal...
