Habs Drewiske starts skating

This morning I made my usual stop at the Complex Sportif Bell arena in Brossard Quebec to check out what was happening. Even if the Montreal Canadiens are in Philadelphia the injured ones stayed behind for therapy or to start skating. This morning marked the return of new comer Davis Drewiske. Drewiske was traded to the Habs last season at trade deadline for a fifth round pick....

Eric Engels: Habs block the Stars from a win at the Bell Centre

A win is a win, and the Canadiens have collected them in back-to-back games with a 2-1 decision over Dallas Tuesday, which now brings their home record to 4-4. Without Max Pacioretty, Brandon Prust, Travis Moen, Daniel Briere, Alexei Emelin and Davis Drewiske, the Canadiens have made some crucial defensive adjustments, hence 57 blocked shots spread over games with the Rangers...

Habs in tough as Prust hits the shelf

Now this sounds familiar: the Canadiens are suffering a barrage of injuries. Last week we learned Davis Drewiske would be gone 6 months, Max Pacioretty 3 weeks, and now Brandon Prust is out a month with a shoulder injury. Add to that George Parros, Alex Emelin, Doug Murray, and a clearly banged up Josh Gorges, not to mention a concussed Daniel Briere, and you get...a regular season...

Eric Engels: D's at the Infirmary, Depth is Key

1) The importance of having defensive depth is already being proven at Montreal Canadiens training camp. Francis Bouillon and Douglas Murray are both on the sidelines with day-to-day lower body injuries, and Davis Drewiske will miss the next four weeks with a shoulder injury. Nathan Beaulieu suffered a shoulder injury in the team's first scrimmage, last week. As a result,...

The Canadiens Actually Wanted To Keep Davis Drewiske by   Steven Ellis

So first the Canadiens signed Francis Bouillon, but now they have inked Davis Drewiske to a two year deal. I guess Montreal is looking to stack the healthy scratch list. Drewiske’s deal will see him make $625K next season, and $650K in 2014-15. This means he will carry a cap hit of $.6375M. Undrafted, Drewiske started [...]

So if the top three teams in the East this year are Boston, Pittsburgh and Montreal, they have thus far acquired Jagr, Morrow, Iginla - and Drewiske. Who is Davis Drewiske? He's a competent depth defenceman who came out of the University of Wisconsin, and provides the Canadiens with insurance on the back end going into the playoffs. Sure, it's not a sexy move, but it'...

Solid #6 - nothing fancy - will get his 11-12 minutes. Does this signal another deal for the Kings? Pominville? Stafford? I'm sure Lombardi doesn't want to...

Because the salary cap drops to 64.3 million dollars next season – and there’s certainly a chance that will happen – unless players currently under contract for next season are traded...

Many are saying "this is an outrage!" and they would be right.
