In a bid to improve the team’s transparency, Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin recently answered fans’ questions. Consider it mission partially accomplished. To Bergevin’s credit, he was candid in some of his responses (i.e., with regard to how trades go down)… not so candid in some others (his most important lesson learned). Regardless, the

When all is said and done, winger Joel Armia could end up being the Montreal Canadiens’ big July free-agent signee. That statement is more a testament to how underrated the move to trade for him (and Steve Mason’s contract) was by general manager Marc Bergevin than how the only legitimate NHLer the Habs have acquired

At the beginning of the 2017-18 season, the Montreal Canadiens placed Victor Mete with Shea Weber on the top defensive pairing. Mete, a left-shot defenceman, was an ideal fit to play alongside Weber, a right-hand shot. Also, Mete’s speed and ability to move the puck suited Weber’s shutdown, defensive-minded game. The two had good chemistry.

Learning about a key trade is tough when you haven’t had your morning coffee. When I woke up to the news Alex Galchenyuk had been traded to the Arizona Coyotes for left wing Max Domi, my initial reaction was “The Habs were ripped off.” While it will take time to see the long-term impact of

Despite rumours to the contrary, Tomas Plekanec has likely played his last game for the Montreal Canadiens. It’s painful to see his regular season games played total sitting at 998. A player of his calibre deserves to have played 1,000 NHL games. It’s a badge of honour that tells fans you survived training camps, played

The Montreal Canadiens absolutely don’t need Antti Niemi. Nevertheless, it’s hard to fault general manager Marc Bergevin for re-signing the goalie, as he just did to a 1-year, $950,000 deal. Think of Niemi as that extra insurance policy you have, because, “Hey, why not?” There really isn’t a reason. Price vs. Niemi To be clear,

Ever wonder which Marvel Cinematic Universer character matches up best with each of your favorite Montreal Canadiens? Well, you will now. In light of the release of the most recent Avengers movie, which features a cast of what seems like thousands, why not re-imagine the movie with Habs playing starring roles? Their collective season may

The body’s not even cold yet, but that hasn’t stopped idle speculation from heating up as to just what went wrong with the 2017-18 Montreal Canadiens. More specifically, speculation as to who were the main culprits. The People vs. Pacioretty and Price Whereas some interpreted general manager Marc Bergevin’s post-mortem press-conference comments as an attempt

If the 2017-18 Montreal Canadiens season had been a play, their embittered fans had likely been hoping for a tragic ending during which management fell on its sword. After all, the first two acts certainly fit the bill anyway. Unfortunately, what they got was a comedy as owner Geoff Molson and general manager Marc Bergevin

With the Montreal Canadiens long since eliminated from playoff contention, it’s about time general manager Marc Bergevin and owner Geoff Molson take stock of this past season. That’s especially true, as they’ve got just a few games left, with the team already 23 points out of the last wild-card spot. Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc

When Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin said he’ll “be there at the draft in Dallas,” he didn’t say in what capacity. To Promote or Fire Bergevin The implication was of course he wasn’t getting fired and had the full support of Canadiens owner Geoff Molson as the team’s GM. Theoretically though, that would further
