Will the Paul Byron contract be a problem for the Montreal Canadiens?

Paul Byron increased his stock with the Montreal Canadiens earning a four-year contract extension, but that may be a problem if he remains in the bottom six. Taking players off of waivers or putting them on waivers always comes with a risk. Sometimes a team can capitalize on an opportunity where a player needs to […] Will the Paul Byron contract be a problem for the Montreal Canadiens? - A Winning Habit - A Winning Habit - A Montreal Canadiens Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Paul Byron continues to be an illustration of consistency

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports A career year turned into a benchmark. When Paul Byron scored 22 goals in the 2016-17 season it was a career year, and many expected regression to what he had shown the previous season. Instead, 2016-17 was the beginning of the second stage of Byron’s career; one that got him a four-year, $13.6-million contract extension, an ‘A’ on his jersey, and made him an integral part of the team. Byron’s 2018-19 season saw him deal with several injuries. He missed the season finale with a wrist injury, two games with a suspected concussion, six games with a...

Montreal Canadiens: Can Paul Byron Play a Top Six Role?

The Montreal Canadiens have most of their forwards returning next season except for Andrew Shaw. He played a top six role late in the season, is it possible that Paul Byron fills that void?
