The Jets visit Montreal for the first time in their new form tonight.
While most of the mainstream media is indicating that the Habs are entering a make-or-break stretch, I’m more than comfortable with declaring that the season has been broken. Its over. Its time for Montreal to make some smart management decisions for once in 20 years. Montreal trails 8th place New Jersey by 9 points having played an extra game. No matter how hard you wish – you’re not coming back from that. What makes this more frustrating is that Montreal GM Pierre Gauthier has already forfeited much of the benefit a team should derive from a losing season.
He made an $4.25M mistake when he traded the expiring contract of Jaroslav Spacek away for Tomas Kaberle. The panic move was supposed to salvage the Habs season. That mistake may ultimately be Gauthier’s undoing as the GM of this team. While Kaberle has been adequate in his time in Montreal – I simply cannot see the logic that allowed Gauthier to make this tra...

The Monteal Canadiens are sitting in last place in the Northeast Division, and apparently that has a few players a bit on edge. During Monday's practice, defenseman P.K. Subban and center Tomas Plekanec dropped the gloves after clashing during a one-on-one drill, ESPN.com reports. The "fight" was far from intense, but it's still interesting to see teammates mix...
Lars Eller capped an evening imaginable to very few, and capable by even fewer.
If there’s a team who needs to eat up wins now more than ever — given the coaching controversy — it’s the Montreal Canadiens.
And Eller, a 22-year-old from Denmark, racked up five points — four of them goals.
Under interim coach Randy Cunneyworth, the Habs move to 2-6 — which...
It sure looks like a ***** in this picture, and I wouldn’t put it past a Montreal Canadiens fan to bring such an item to a game in anticipation of one of the Habs netting a hat trick. I just hope that it wasn’t in slightly used condition when it made it’s way to the ice.
Whether or not the red, phallic-shaped item found amongst the hats strewn on the ice following Montreal...
The Montreal Canadiens have demoted forward Louis Leblanc to their American Hockey League affiliate, presumably preparing for the return of captain Brian Gionta from a groin injury.Gionta hasn't played since suffering the injury Dec. 8 against the Vancouver Canucks.Leblanc played well during his time with the Canadiens, registering five points in 14 games.Gionta has eight goals...
Have you ever wondered who would think, "Boy, I'd so much rather be the guy who picks up the dead duck thrown from the stands during a hockey game?" The answer, we imagine, is the guy who has to pick up the rubber phallus thrown on the ice in celebration of a hat trick.
According to Gerard Yee on Twitter, somebody at the Montreal Canadiens' 7-3 home victory over...

Kicking 2012 Off with a Bang!
So, unless you were hiding under a rock last night, most every Canadiens fan is now well aware of the unreal performance by Lars Eller last night against the Winnipeg Jets.
Not only did he score 4 goals and add an assist, but he actually gave his fans and teammates something to smile about.
While it can be argued whether or not this will go...
