from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out, Write this down and take it to the bank:
P.K. Subban and Lars Eller will be in uniform on Opening Night of the Canadiens’ 2012-13 season.
Randy Cunneyworth won’t be behind the bench.
Add one more fearless prediction: Pierre Gauthier won’t be the team’s general manager.
Christmas has come early for Jacques Martin. Fired last Saturday morning, Martin has spent the week watching his team plumb new depths of suckitude.

Montreal Canadiens interim head coach Randy Cunneyworth is at the center of controvery surrounding the plunge the Habs have taken, with the Canadiens' losing streak now reaching five games. Many in Habs Nation point the finger at Cunneyworth for his inability to speak French as the root of the problem, but Jack Edwards does not agree. French or English, it doesn't matter...
The Montreal Canadiens signed forward Michael Bournival to a three-year contract on Wednesday.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
"Michael has shown excellent hockey skills and has improved constantly since making his debut at the junior level," Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier said in a statement.

The current general manager of the Montreal Canadiens has every right to be concerned. The recent coaching change has yet to work out well (on or off the ice) and trades and signings in the past few months have been slammed inside and out. Altogether, fans are ticked off and/or depressed. As it stands, Pierre Gauthier is likely the next to go. And that may happen sooner rather than...
from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, As bad as all of this is, the Canadiens are just four points out of the playoffs. This season is not lost, unless the organization believes it’s time to start over. But the patient is not going to survive unless someone steps up with a defibrillator.
That person is not Pierre Gauthier. It’s not Cunneyworth. And it’s not Brian Gionta, or any other...

“In any language, the Montreal Canadiens don’t show signs of being a winner”
Randy Cunneyworth speaks to media after being named interim coach for the Montreal Canadiens. He's been the target of criticism by Montreal residents for not being bilingual.
Patrick Roy has announced that he is ready to consider NHL jobs after this junior hockey season. That news has Canadiens fans on red alert.
Roy, a Montreal legend, has forged a tough-guy coaching reputation while working with younger players. He is one of the potential Canadiens coaching candidates that excites the public.Nobody gives interim coach Randy Cunneyworth much of a chance...

1) Michael Cammalleri has 3 goals in his last 24 games. Good for him for setting up a couple in the couple of games leading up to last night.
It's beyond comprehension as to how he could have such a poor effort in Chicago. Forget the fact that he and his linemates combined for a -9 rating last night; staring at the ref for a too many men call that wasn't coming while the...
Welcome to the Hotstove! As always, I'm your host, Travis Yost.
On Wednesday, Adam French and myself brought forth one of the more polarizing topics in hockey right now - the status quo of the Montreal Canadiens. One of hockey's proudest franchises continues to toil in mediocrity, much to the chagrin of the fan base in Montreal.
To say that the act is getting a bit...
