Habs Eyes On The Prize 1 hour ago

The Canadiens are on the brink of a franchise altering mistake with P.K. Subban

Fans are naturally irrational, but right now Canadiens fans have every right to be in the boiling rage they're in. You need to fix this situation, Marc.

Habs sign first-round pick Scherbak

MONTREAL — Nikita Scherbak took another step toward a National Hockey League career Monday when he agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Canadiens. The Canadiens selected Scherbak in the first round (26th overall) of this year’s NHL draft and the deal represents a commitment by both sides.
