Eric Engels: Gorges Said... Lottery Tonight. Who Do you Want?

Josh Gorges finished atop the league standings in blocked shots this season and managed to play in all 82 games. Not bad for a guy coming off ACL-reconstruction--which we know can be a little tricky. A big confidence boost was surviving a freak fall in the preseason that tested Gorges' knee to its full extent. Having passed that test with flying colors, the Montreal rearguard...

For Bruins fans, that's what made the 2011-12 season a delightful one. Not only were the Bruins able to wear the title of "defending Stanley Cup champions" with pride, but they watched the Habs...

Red Wings are very likely to just say ‘no’ if Canadiens call about Jim Nill

This one should be filed in the, “No fooling” department, from ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun: You can add Jim Nill to the long list of names the Montreal Canadiens are compiling in their GM search. A source told ESPN.com that the Habs contacted the Detroit Red Wings regarding Nill, their well-respected assistant GM. In the past, the Wings have always said “No” to any team calling...
