  • Pre-season Tease

    The Canadiens suffered a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Boston Bruins last night in Moncton, New Brunswick. Another meaningless game, just like the one before where the habs were the victors. Training camp is coming to a close and I am very much welcoming that.

    Pre-season hockey has stirred the pot and the excitement level has risen to about as far as it can go.
    I don’t think I speak alone when I say I’ve had enough of watching career minor leaguers trying out for NHL teams and am ready for the real season to begin.

    Perhaps it’s due to the fact The Canadiens will be fielding the most competitive team they have had in awhile. We wait with much anticipation for October 5th.

    The final cuts will come shortly, and Guillaume Latendresse should be among them. Will he?

  • Expected Cuts

    Today the Montreal Canadiens cut 6 players:

    Goalies: Carey Price, Olivier Michaud

    Defensemen: André Benoit, Jonathan Aitken

    Forwards: Kyle Chipchura, Michael Lambert

    No real surprises here. The real important cuts are the last to be made. Hossa, Plekanec, Higgins, Hainsey, Komisarek and Streit all hope to avoid the axe and get a chance to start.
