The Montreal Canadiens ended their tumultuous relationship with Scott Gomez earlier in the week when the 33-year-old was bought-out after he cleared waivers. It was a fitting end for a nightmare of a stint for Gomez. With that said, I think he still has more left in the tank and can still play in the NHL. According to a tweet from Bob McKenzie, the Anaheim Ducks may be interested in bringing th...

Todd Cordell: Report: New Jersey Devils Interested In Scott Gomez

With just one day remaining until the 2013 NHL season begins, we could see a familiar face back in the black and red by the time New Jersey opens the season against the New York Islanders. The New Jersey Devils are among a group of six teams that have expressed interest in Scott Gomez, according to Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet. The Carolina Hurricanes, New York Islanders and Anaheim...

Alex Galchenyuk to begin season with Canadiens

  MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens made seven cuts Friday morning to leave them with 23 healthy bodies in training camp, and top draft pick Alex Galchenyuk was not among those who were sent home.  Galchenyuk, the No. 3 pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, has spent the entire camp skating at left wing on the Canadiens' second line, and that's presumably where he'll be when...

With no excuses, proud Canadiens move forward

The Canadian Press Written in large letters on the Montreal Canadiens dressing room wall is the slogan ''No excuses.'' The new management team brought in last summer doesn't want to hear about why the fabled Canadiens finished last in the Eastern Conference last season. It just wants the losing to end. And veteran defenseman Josh Gorges agrees. ''The...

John Jaeckel: The Hawks Big Addition Now Might Be . . .

(follow me @jaeckel) Wait for it . . . Wait for it . . . Much-maligned and now banished Montreal Center, Scott Gomez. Hearing this AM the Hawks have had some conversation with his agent about a possible one year deal. Let me say this: as a depth, potential lightning in a bottle move, meh, why not—for minimal dollars? Remember, the Hawks brought in Brendan...

Steven Hindle: Giving in to Galchenyuk

5 Game Tryout Not Enough Short but sweet, why should the Canadiens keep Alex Galchenyuk beyond his five game tryout? Answer: Because he is the best option available for their second line. Bar none. With each passing day of this Canadiens shortened training camp, the one thing that is becoming clear is that Michel Therrien doesn't really have anyone else in mind when...

Canadiens final cuts tomorrow

The Montreal Canadiens played a 3 period scrimmage tonight in front of an almost full house (about 70%) full of fans that lined up for hours to see the Habs back in action. Coach Michel Therrien said after the game that final cuts will be announced tomorrow morning, at which point we'll find out whether Alex Galchenyuk cracks the roster for Saturday's game against the Maple...

Maple Leafs-Canadiens Preview

With a combined 35 Stanley Cups, the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs are two of the league's proudest franchises. Neither team, however, is coming off a season to be particularly proud of. While there appears to be a glimmer of hope the Canadiens will see some improvements, it doesn't seem the Maple Leafs have done enough to get back into the playoff picture...

Habs set for season opener

So, the season is - finally - upon us. Three main storylines for tonight's tilt with the Maple Leafs as the season gets underway:   1) The kids are alright: Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher crack the Habs roster. Galchenyuk will play on the 2nd line, and while not confirmed, I suspect Gallagher 3rd line an PP time. Why? Coach Michel Therrien said multiple times that...

Chip McCleary: The NHL, NHLPA, and the new CBA: Making it up as they go along (again)

As I was working on my 2013 Blues Preview on Tuesday, I noticed that there was sudden chatter over an agreement between the NHL and NHLPA regarding compliance buyouts and the situations involving Wade Redden and Scott Gomez. Instead of both guys being sent home for the season but getting paid in full so that their respective teams could buy them out at season’s end, now both...

The NHL is Back!

Let the Teal Wookie Win   Hockey never left, but the NHL sure did. Now we suddenly find ourselves faced with 13 games on today's docket, not one of which features the Sharks. They start Sunday, just in time to conflict with the NFC Championship game features the 49ers. That won't have any impact on ratings at all! Ok, so it's not ideal, but those of us who...
