Future Free Agents: Alexander Radulov

The narrative surrounding Alexander Radulov has completely flipped in the past year. When he was inked by the Montreal Canadiens to a one-year, $5.75 million deal on the first day of free agency last summer, not long after the team had pulled off a massively polarizing swap of P.K. Subban for Shea Weber, it was met...

From the Branches: It’s Mark Messier Leadership Award nominations day!

From the Branches: It’s Mark Messier Leadership Award nominations day!

It’s time to find out who’s as good a leader as Mark Messier was (not including his time in Vancouver). Oh boy, I couldn’t sleep last night knowing that today is the day we find out who’s being nominated for the Mark Messier Leadership Award for being a Good Leader like Mark Messier sponsored by Cold-FX. Last year Shea Weber won the award, and that’s probably what put the Canadiens over the edge and decided to pull the trigger, send PK Subban to Nashville, and bring aboard 30 year old Shea Weber who was signed for TEN YEARS AT 7.8 MILLION PER SEASON. [pause for laugh track] Mark...

Monday Habs Headlines: Shea Weber’s playoff play is just what the Habs hoped for

Here are your daily links including Weber’s playoff style, Shaw’s Stanley Cup memories, and some new research on concussions in sports.

A much more composed game for #27 gets rewarded with a massive assist. The Canadiens actually build some momentum on a four-minute power play and got another goal to make it 2-0. Alex Galchenyuk showed a lot of poise getting the puck to Shea Weber in tight.

Top Heavy: Breaking down the Game One matchups by the numbers

Top Heavy: Breaking down the Game One matchups by the numbers

A very strange game from a very strange Habs team. Game One didn’t quite go as expected for a lot of reasons, most of them plainly visible on the scoresheet, the spreadsheet, and the eye-test. A lot simply did not go right for the Montreal Canadiens on the night. Here, we’ll highlight a few things to make a note of going forward. Weber vs. Kreider: Weber wins Round 1 Going into the matchup, I highlighted Shea Weber vs. Chris Kreider as an important matchup. In Game One, Claude Julien chose to deploy Weber and Andrei Markov along with the Tomas Plekanec line to face off against Kreider....

Habs practice notes: Carey Price to start versus Tampa Bay

Amidst rumours that the Canadiens would rest their star goaltender, they have announced he will indeed start against Tampa Bay.
