Found January 25, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
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 team's potential on its head, bu...

P.K. Subban Seeks to Be ‘Paid What I’m Worth’ as Contract Battle With Canadiens Drags On

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...

Canadiens 4, Capitals 1

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...

Habs trouble: Pacioretty out a month

News tonight that Max Pacioretty has undergone appendectomy surgery, and will be gone 3-4 weeks. Lars Eller is expected to take his place in the lineup tomorrow. Tough news for the Canadiens as they prepare to meet the Devils in Montreal tomorrow. Still no sign of PK Subban, with news the Habs have offered $5.1 million over two years. Certainly not a good news day for Les Canadiens. 

Habs May Deal PK Subban And A Conversation Ensues

From Bob McKenzie via TSN990:  "At some point the notion of trading PK Subban is something that I think the Montreal Canadiens may decide to deal with." So why would I care that a rebuilding Northeast Division rival's rookie GM is possibly on the verge of trading it's most marketable, young first pairing defenceman? And did I neglect to mention the future...

The Latest On PK Subban

Little or no progress made in PK Subban contract negotiations. Habs firm on 2 year deal, roughly $5 mil total. Offer sheet? Trade? Options. — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) January 26, 2013

Should the Pens make a run at P.K. Subban?

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: There aren'...

Montreal Canadiens Spotlight: One Win, One Loss and One Contract to Sign

Justin K. Aller / Getty Images By James Stephan (@J_Habs) 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...

Gameday: vs. Montreal, Jan. 24

Image via Clydeorama The Washington Capitals will welcome the Montreal Canadiens to Verizon Center on Thursday night as they attempt to get their first win of the 2013 season.  The Caps have dropped their first two games while conceding ten goals in the process, and are 0-2 for the first time in more than a decade.  The Canadiens, who beat the Panthers 4-1 in their last game...

Matthew Barry: P.K. Subban to the Kings?

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...

Eklund: Poll> Should the Canadiens Sign PK for $5M+per or Trade Him?

Quick hit this morning, to be followed by a big rumor blog later on... The Jamie Benn signing has really put the spotlight squarely on Pk Subban and the Montreal Canadiens as rumors of a possible offer sheet grow... The question is this... poll by more to come this afternoon....

Canadians dump Caps behind four-goal second period

WASHINGTON -- When the NHL lockout ended, many believed teams with first-year coaches would have the most difficult time getting out of the gates. 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...
