It's 2011 Vancouver Canucks vs. Montreal Canadiens (West vs. East) smack talk time. Next up is the Habs, and Richard has 5 reasons he can't stand the Montreal Canadiens hockey team. First off, between the pipes is BC boy Carey Price. Rollie Melanson left Roberto Luongo for Montreal. Cmon! $7.35 million is tied up in paying Scott Gomez, enough said.
It’s getting cold in Montreal, but winter will be much, much worse. Les Canadiens are flatlining. And it’s December.
A terrible performance last night against Columbus in front of their home crowd, who have seen just four wins thus far, sealed it for me. This team just doesn’t have it - and it goes a lot farther than Scott Gomez. Sure, injuries are a large part of it, and...
If you haven't heard by now, there is a story on The Fourth Period magazine's website stating that a clean sweep of the Montreal Canadiens management team could be imminent.
Here's the link:
The story cites "...three separate sources close to the team...", going on to say that Bob Gainey has been speaking...
It seems that any time the Montreal Canadiens have more than a day off rumours, innuendo and other forms of insanity start to swirl.
And swirl they did the last few days with the revelation that Habs All-Star defenseman, Andrei Markov, was not ready for play and would need another operation on his twice surgically repaired knee.

Blue Jackets 3, Canadiens 2, SO. With AP Photos. Rick Nash's shootout goal lifted the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 3-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.
Curtis Sanford was perfect in the tiebreaker, turning aside David Desharnais, Max Pacioretty and Brian Gionta. Gionta scored a goal with 1:21 left in regulation to send the game to overtime.
Andrei Kostitsyn scored...
There is no reason that this game should be considered any more important than any other.. except that the Canadiens are in the middle of another very dangerous swoon.
Their game against Columbus was one in which they were lucky to have even gotten one point.
Frankly, if it weren’t for the play of Alexei Emelin, Lars Eller, and some brief moments for Louis Leblanc I would say that...
The Canadiens are back home to face the Blue Jackets (known locally of course as the Vestons Bleu – not really).
The game will be big for Louis Leblanc who (I can only imagine) will be dealing with a case of jitters that you couldn’t possibly imagine. He`ll start off on the fourth line, but if things go well for him – I can`t believe that Martin wouldn’t try him on a line...
The Montreal Canadiens have yet to lose in regulation this season when leading after two periods. The Columbus Blue Jackets
have also fared well in those situations, but that wasn't the case their last time out.
