As alluded to by Bryan Willey, winger Chris Stewart is having a difficult season under new St. Louis Blues' coach Ken Hitchcock and could be on the move.
Morning Hab addicts.
Much like last week, the Canadiens have an unusual schedule that will see them play on Friday and Sunday.

Top of the morning puck fans!
I have a confession to make. I only watched half of the Habs game last night.
Instead of watching the anemic Canadiens and no-name Stars, I tilted my attention towards the Jets-Flyers clash.
Can you blame me? In their three previous meetings, the two squads combined for 26 goals.
Now, after seeing the Flyers storm back in the final seconds...
NBC Sports Network has some issues on more than just the ratings front. One of their biggest programming hits thus far is live hockey games, and they generally have done a pretty good job thus far with those broadcasts, but there was a notably questionable decision Sunday night on their coverage of the Montreal Canadiens - New Jersey Devils game. The Canadiens started with a moving...
So how are you feeling about your Montreal Canadiens this morning, Hab addicts?
It's a bit rough, isn't it?

A lot of fans are scratching their heads this morning, wondering how a...
Slow starts have plagued the Montreal Canadiens recently, and put their playoff hopes in peril.
