The Canadiens have already played two games, and they’ll play their third on Thursday night when they head to Washington to take on the Capitals. All three of those games, and any in the near future, will be played without the services of P.K. Subban.
The Montreal defenseman remains a restricted free agent, and the ongoing talks over a new contract between the two sides is ongoing. In fact, there hasn’t been many positive developments as of late. It’s expected that a deal will eventually get done, but nothing seems imminent at the moment.
Subban says that he just wants to get what he thinks he deserves.
“It comes down to this,” he told the Montreal Gazette. “I want to be paid what I’m worth.”
Subban continues to work out in Toronto until a resolution is reached There’s always a chance that the resolution is a trade, but Subban remains insistent that he wants to stay with the Habs.
“I don’t even know what to think anymore,” he told the paper. “At this point, you have to remain opt

Should he stay or should he go? If you believe the pundits, the Canadiens have offered Subban 2 years, $3 million per year - far too low. Subban, naturally, is offput by this offer, and wants 5 or 6 years, at $5.5-6 million per year - far too much. Who will blink first? The reality is that if the Habs deal Subban, the next decade will be spent looking for a physical, puck moving...
Mitchell is getting older - Scuderi is in the final year of his contract - Subban and Doughty for the next 5-6 years would be just brutal to the opponents of the Western Conference.
If the Habs ARE willing to deal P.K., a Western Conference team would make sense.
Is P.K. a Dean Lombardi "right fit?"
What would it cost Lombardi? They don't need Bernier and its...

Disappointment was what every Habs fan was reluctantly expecting on Tuesday, January 22nd as the Montreal Canadiens hosted the Florida Panthers. Fans were hoping that Saturday’s Home opening loss to the Leafs was just a case of the jitters and a very short pre-season to prepare.
Habs fans rejoiced around the world as they...
Little or no progress made in PK Subban contract negotiations. Habs firm on 2 year deal, roughly $5 mil total. Offer sheet? Trade? Options.

Before we get started, we know what you're thinking: "How could I ever not hate P.K Subban? I couldn't stand him when he played against the Pens." Two words: Darius Kasparaitis.
This could be the biggest story in the NHL off the ice right now: P.K. Subban and his contract negotiation with the Habs.
Great read here from Adam Getz:
Andrei Markov's resurgence continued with a goal and an assist, and the Montreal Canadiens cruised to a 4-1 win Thursday night over the Washington Capitals, who are 0-3 for the first time in nearly two decades.
Finally healthy after twice tearing the ACL in his right knee, Markov was part of a second-period spree in which the Canadiens scored in all sorts of ways against a Capitals...

The Scott Gomez comeback starts now. Gomez has signed a one-year, $700,000 pro-rated deal with the San Jose Sharks, as reported by ESPN's Pierre LeBrun. His deal comes just a handful of days after Wade Redden, his partner in bloated contracts that required buyouts, signed a deal with the St. Louis Blues.
Now that Gomez is back in an active NHL role and playing under a reasonable...
Veteran center Scott Gomez and the Sharks came to terms on a contract on Wednesday, an expected move several days in the making.
The one-year deal is reportedly worth $700,000. To make room for Gomez on the 23-man roster, the Sharks placed Brent Burns on the injured reserve.
Gomez, 33, had been working out with the Sharks since the weekend and accompanied the team on their recent...
Hello to you, too!
Remember when Mark Streit and Andrei Markov tormented penalty kill units and goaltenders?
Well, if you can't, you can get a great idea of what it was like if you've watched Markov and Habs sophomore defender Raphael Diaz work their magic on the power play.
It's not secret that Markov's performance through 3 games has all but turned the...

On Thursday night in front of a restless crowd at Verizon Center, Michel Therrien's Montreal Canadiens looked like a team hitting its stride, while Adam Oates' Washington Capitals continued to stumble. Both coaches are in their...
