A better role for David Desharnais

The Canadiens' last game against the Vancouver Canucks showed that taking Desharnais off of the Pacioretty line shows promise for both players, not just Pacioretty. It’s a little reckless to put too much stock in a single game, but this is hockey, and reckless optimism is the very first requirement of being a sports fan. Tuesday night’s game against the Vancouver Canucks was the best one the Canadiens have played in a very long time, and if it’s at all a sign of things to come, I have some words to take back regarding David Desharnais. Most notably that he is a useless dead weight...

Changes galore in store for the Habs. Injuries and terrible results lead to dream lines for Canadiens as they host the Canucks at home. Join Our Community Montreal Canadiens blog Eyes On The Prize Lots of changes for the Canadiens this week, maybe not as many as say the Ottawa Senators, but a number of changes nonetheless. Alex Galchenyuk finally moves to the centre position on the top line and that's probably the biggest takeaway from the reshuffling. That alone should be enough get you excited for tonight's game. Not good enough? Ok. David Desharnais drops down to the third...

Friday Habs Links: What to do with Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais

Here are your daily links, including the debate of Weise or Desharnais with Pacioretty, Gorges and Gionta's reminiscences about Jean Beliveau, and a sweet Nikita Scherbak goal with the Everett Silvertips Montreal Canadiens Links David Desharnais, P.A. Parenteau, Max Pacioretty, and Dale Weise are the new "trio of four players". Is Weise with Pacioretty a better fit than Desharnais? [La Presse] (French) RDS's Normand Flynn says no, and says to keep Desharnais and Pacioretty together. This feels like watching a high school drama about who takes the popular girl to prom. [TSN...

Habs forwards cheat too often, causing broken coverage

Not much went right on Tuesday night for the Canadiens, but one play in particular stood out as evidence of very poor defensive coverage, and a questionable breakout strategy. Montreal's defenders take the majority of the heat when discussing the Habs' weakness on defense, however often it's the forwards who are failing on their assignments. This leads to incredibly easy goals for their opponents. This play got off to an innocent start. Max Pacioretty chipped a puck across the offensive zone, forcing David Desharnais to chase. Desharnais gets out-muscled fairly easily, and loses the puck....
