from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette, Here, then, are a few personally memorable events from the past 12 months, culled in no particular order from the reporting trail:
Marcel Marceau Award: Canadiens GM Pierre Gauthier. Sadly, his acceptance speech is inaudible.
Delay-of-Game Award: Habs’ Price and Bruins’ Thomas “fight” in the Feb. 9 gong show in Boston. We’ve seen better scraps by kittens at a bowl of cream.
Royalty at the Bell Centre: Home games are incomplete if I look down from my press-gallery seat above centre ice and don’t see the snow-capped Jean and Élise Béliveau in their regular spot, three rows behind the Canadiens bench.
Most misunderstood coach: For 90 enlightening minutes in mid-November, I sit with Canadiens coach Jacques Martin in his Brossard office for a feature profile and observe not the individual many call an emotionless robot, but an engaging, insightful man to whom hockey is in every drop of his blood. A month later on Twitter, I break the story th...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Canadiens blow a 3-1 lead, this time blaming the bounces as the Habs fall to Tampa Bay. Bright spots? Mike Cammalleri seems to be waking up, Alexei Emelin is laying wicked hits left right and centre, and Raphael Diaz has 5 points in his past 2 games.
Downsides? Everything else, led by the usual goal from an ex-Hab, this time former farmhand JT Wyman.
And so the Canadiens drag...
The Montreal Canadiens played, and lost to, the Tampa Bay Lightning last night. It was yet another game where Montreal let a third period lead slip away, a disturbing trend that is the prime suspect in the Canadiens woes this season.
I remember when the Habs made the trade for Tomas Kaberle, that I was embroiled in an argument on Twitter about how the Canadiens were just not a...

Thanks to an explosive offensive attack, the Canadiens finally gave head coach Randy Cunneyworth his first NHL win in their last trip to the ice. Montreal will try to keep the scoring going tonight, as it visits the Tampa Bay Lightning for a battle at St. Pete Times Forum.

MONTREAL—Montreal Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier announced Sunday the signing of defenseman Josh Gorges to a six-year contract extension (2012-13 to 2017-18). As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Gorges, 27, one of the team’s assistant captains since the start of the 2011-12 season, played in the Canadiens’ 39 games this season...
Josh Gorges will be a Montreal Canadien for a long time to come. He was extended today for 6 years in a move that Pierre Gauthier made in order to not lose the 26 year old at the end of the season to free agency. Gorges will earn an average of $3.9M for each of the next six seasons. As one of the critical young players in the organization that Gauthier can trust, Gorges’ signing...
