Leadership Committee Won’t Work For Montreal Canadiens

#494088003 / gettyimages.com The Montreal Canadiens thought it was cute to tweet a picture of Andrei Markov, Thomas Plekanec, P.K. Subban and Max Pacioretty saying “here are your four captains for 2014-2015”. While the tweet from September 15 has since been deleted, the joke still isn’t all that funny.

Max Pacioretty Considers Bruins A ‘Measuring-Stick Team’ for Canadiens

No doubt the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens are gearing up to revive their rivalry after a steamy end to their second-round playoff series last spring.

Max Pacioretty, for one, is looking forward to facing the Bruins. “That’s...

Canadiens Legend Guy Lafleur Rips Max Pacioretty, Thomas Vanek

Montreal Canadiens legend Guy Lafleur began his playoff career with just four goals in 29 games over three postseasons. So he knows a thing or two about failing to live up to expectations when it matters most. Maybe that’s why he’s calling out a couple of current Habs. Lafleur took both Thomas Vanek and Max Pacioretty to task when recently speaking to La Presse about the Canadiens’...

Rangers need to find an answer for Pacioretty and Habs top line

The Canadiens played well enough to win game two. If it weren’t for Henrik Lundqvist standing tall during the Habs onslaught in the first period, the game could have been over shortly after it started. During the second period intermission, the knucklehead duo of Keith Jones and Mike Milbury agreed that Max Pacioretty needs to ‘step up’ for the Canadiens. Which is hilarious...
