Gionta Named Captain

…..didn’t they have to?

If they didn’t name him captain, there would be an absolute media feast on their dressing room. This is Montreal, afterall. He is their 28th captain in team history and only second that is US born.

Halak to the Blues

Wow…and here I was doing a blog on the NHL Cover Curse.

Jaroslav Halak has been traded to the St. Louis Blues for Lars Eller and Ian Schultz. There is obviously something going on behind the scenes here because this is a pretty uneven deal in favour of the Blues. St. Louis gets the MVP of the Playoffs until his departure for yes, a great prospect in Lars Eller and power forward with little upside.

The report is that there were no contract talks between Halak and the Blues before the deal, so he could technically not even sign there. But still, I would have expected AT LEAST one roster player from a Blues team that has a ton of offensive talent to part with. Instead, the Habs are sticking with their golden boy Price and the GMs in the Northeast Division are left having a texting circle jerk about how many goals they will score this year.

Halak’s top saves of the Playoffs.

Dear Montreal and Philadelphia,

We would like to thank you for your recent success in the NHL Playoffs. Enjoy your late round draft picks.


Half of the NHL

Teams and fans alike, should be thanking the Montreal Canadiens and Philadelphia Flyers for their recent success in the 2010 Playoffs. As everyone knows, the Habs had one of the best underdog runs that I have seen in my life time, knocking off both Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby in two seven game series. The Flyers success might be even more impressive, with the way they’ve dealt with injuries to their comeback against the Bruins when down 3-0.

Why is the success of two of the most hated teams in League be important to any of us?

PK Back to Hamilton For Game 7

Posted in Hockey Thoughts with tags , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2010 by davepoleck

The Montreal Canadiens have sent down both PK Subban and Ben Maxwell; both are going to be available to play in Game 7 tomorrow night against the Texas Stars. In 14 playoff games for the Habs, Subban had one goal and seven assists. In the six games he played during the early stages of Hamilton’s playoff run, he had three goals and six assists.

Maybe he can help get some more fans to those games at Copps.
