Montreal Canadiens: It Is Time To Give Victor Mete Top Power Play Minutes

The Montreal Canadiens have to find answers for their struggling special teams units. Victor Mete may be the obvious solution for a mediocre power play. The Montreal Canadiens unearthed a gem with the 100th overall selection in the 2016 NHL Draft. Victor Mete was an undersized offensive minded defenceman playing for the London Knights when […] Montreal Canadiens: It Is Time To Give Victor Mete Top Power Play Minutes - A Winning Habit - A Winning Habit - A Montreal Canadiens Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Recap: Dull Habs can’t carve out a win

Photo by Minas Panagiotakis/ Inefficient offence and Craig Anderson prevent a Montreal bounce-back victory. Tuesday night’s defeat in Columbus marked the end of a six-game point streak for the Montreal Canadiens. Does a loss equal major lineup changes? Not for Claude Julien. The only switcheroo was putting Ben Chiarot on the top pairing with Shea Weber, and Victor Mete therefore pairing with Jeff Petry instead. Wednesday’s game also marked the first time this season that Carey Price continued in net for the second night of a back-to-back. There were some great scenes before the game...

The Canadiens should sign Victor Mete to a long-term contract

Photo by David Kirouac/Icon Sportswire via He may not have found the scoresheet on Saturday night, but Victor Mete has been proving he’s worth some serious consideration. There’s no two ways about it; Shea Weber was the star of the Montreal Canadiens victory against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. Two classic Weber rockets found their way into the net and made the difference for the Habs in a closer game than they may have liked to find themselves. So it may seem odd that I want to talk about a different defenseman; Victor Mete. He may not have found the scoresheet — in...
