  • Pre-season!

    Can you believe it!? The pre-season begins tonight for the Canadiens. The Florida Panthers are in town after two consecutive victories over the Senators. The game starts at 7:30pm, although I believe the only tv coverage is on RIS who are not showing the game, but pieces over the course of the game. That said, your best bet is on the old time radio, using the new time interweb – CJAD – Tomorrow’s game against Ottawa will be televised as normal.

    The game will mark the beginning of the Habs 5 games in 5 nights pre-season. The Lineup for tonight’s game is:

    Price, Sanford

    Markov, Spacek, Gorges, O’B, Benoit, Subban

    Cammalleri, Gomez, AK46, Gui!, Max, D’Ags, Stewart, Johansson, Trotter, Darche, Desharnais, White.

  • Rookie Camp!

    Hey everyone, this season I’ll be posting game day blogs but I wanted to get a jump on the breaking Habs news: Rookie Camp!

    Ok so its not breaking, or really newsworthy.. but it is the perrenial first sign that the summer pergatory is coming to its conclusion, and that we will be shortly experiencing snow, ice, dead car batteries, hands that will not warm no matter how you try to conceal them… oh yeah and hockey.

    So who is the most likely to make the roster out of this crew of rookies? Would it be better if young guys like Max Pac, Subban et al had a year in the AHL to fine tune?
