from Chris Johnston of the CP at the Medicine Hat News, Rugged Montreal Canadiens winger Ryan White watched the brawl off the opening faceoff between the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils on television Monday night and called it “awesome.” “You don’t see it very often. A lot of people don’t really like it, but I bet the people at Madison Square Garden liked it. I liked it,” White said. “I thought it was pretty cool. There were some big boys going at it, that’s for sure.” The National Hockey League also apparently liked it, with the video of the donnybrook getting feature billing on the league’s website and no fines or suspensions issued.

Maybe these two can’t play together - perhaps it’s fate? Mathieu Darche continues to work his way back from what appears to have been a very bad concussion, and the Canadiens continue to work their way downward, sitting in...

Eric Engels: Gomez out? Next GM of the Habs Could be Closer Than you Think

According to Patrice Brisebois, now of TVA Sport, Scott Gomez eagerly awaits a buyout at the end of the season and hopes to have another chance with the New Jersey Devils.
