The 2012 NHL Trade Deadline is approximately two weeks away.
If any of you are like me, excitement is building within.
To be honest, I am really not sure why I get all giddy at this time of year.
Generally speaking, the Montreal Canadiens make little or no moves at the deadline. Minor trades, little tweaking and roof repair have been the norm in recent years.
Morning puck fans.
Really interesting piece in the links below.
Especially for all those who are quick to dismiss the Canadiens' draft record.
In short, in Hockey's Future evaluation of the 2007 Draft, four of the team's first five picks have graduated to the NHL. If you need a refresher, P.K Subban and Max Pacioretty, amongst others, were part of that draft...
The NHL trade deadline is fast approachingâapproximately two weeks awayâand the buying teams are starting to separate themselves from the sellers.

Habs Barely .500 without #79
Since the start of the season, a question has been on my mind.
At first it was just a little bit of curiosity on behalf of a guy who covers two teams very closely, a thought about the longevity and endurance of both the Montreal Canadiens and Washington Capitals premiere defensemen. And though I was prepared to move on from that thought as both...
In my recap of Monday's win over the Montreal Canadiens, I said that the Canes had two of their worst performances on the penalty kill along with one of their best. Overall, they were burned for two powerplay goals in the second period, gave up four scoring chances and nine shots on about six and a half minutes on the PK, which is pretty bad overall. Most of that damage came...

It was the first time that Kirk Muller - who played in Montreal for four seasons and was an assistant coach there for five - coached against the Canadiens.

Montreal Canadiens forward Scott Gomez and an assistant coach got into a shouting match at practice Tuesday. Assistant Randy Ladouceur apparently was upset at what he considered a lack of intensity during a drill. Gomez is among the league's highest-paid players but has only one goal this year for the struggling Canadiens.
For as much hatred as there is in a rivalry that's 88 years old, let's not kid ourselves, the match-up's between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens in 2011-12 have been anything but heated. It's been a lukewarm feud for these clubs, whose seasons have become a Northeastern tale of two cities, but the (likely) finale tonight in episode six did anything but disappoint...
