Who are the trade untouchables on the Montreal Canadiens?

Marc Bergevin has never been afraid of making a trade to improve the Montreal Canadiens roster, and the list of players who are unavailable is likely small. There are several reasons as to why a general manager must establish who their core is. For starters, the core are the players who should be the most […] Who are the trade untouchables on the Montreal Canadiens? - A Winning Habit - A Winning Habit - A Montreal Canadiens Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Once healthy, Shea Weber’s value to the Canadiens remained high

Photo by Minas Panagiotakis/ In his first season as the team’s captain, Weber made an impact upon his return. Shea Weber entered his 2018-19 season debut with a lot of questions. It had been 11 months since his last game. He had turned 33 in August. He was named the team’s captain before the season started. The team was surpassing all expectations at 11-8-5 at the time of his debut. They were getting good results, and the underlying numbers showed it was legitimate. When Weber came back, they got even better. You can’t discuss Weber without acknowledging the baggage that his name...

Grade Brendan Gallagher’s season

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports Needing to replicate the previous season’s performance to give his team a chance, Gallagher stepped his game up even more. Brendan Gallagher put together a very strong 2017-18 season. He tied his career high in assists and blew away his previous mark with his first 30-goal campaign. While it was a great year for him, it was a dreadful one for his team, and that brought about several big moves in the off-season. Out was the player Gallagher broke into the league with, Alex Galchenyuk, as well as Gallagher’s opposite winger, Max Pacioretty. October 21, 2018:...
