  • Habs re-sign Andrei Markov to two-year deal

    In 2004-05, he registered 23 points in 42 games (7 goals, 16 assists) with the Moscow Dynamo in the Russian League. He scored two goals in 10 playoff games, leading the Dynamo to the league’s playoff championship.This will be Andrei’s 5th season with the Habs.

    This pretty much locks up our defence and leaves only 2 key signings to make. Ryder and Theodore.
    Ryder? Should be a shoe in come the end of this week.

    Theo? Who knows now that Luongo just lost his arbitration case in Toronto, he may be looking to pack his bags for Montreal.

  • Quintal calls it quits. Selanne a duck once again

    Stephane Quintal announced his retirement Monday after living out his childhood dream of playing for the Montreal Canadiens.

    “I have no regrets, and besides, I was fortunate enough to fulfill the dream I had of playing for the Montreal Canadiens.” Quintal is quoted saying.

    I personally liked this guy, played his heart out for the habs, dropped the gloves when he needed to and occasionally gave out a stiff beating. Best of luck to him and his family in the future.

    The thought of Selanne joining captain Koivu for the season is now officially dead. Selanne, 35, has appeared in 394 games with the Mighty Ducks during his career, scoring 482 points. He ranks among Anaheim’s all-time leaders in several categories, including goals, points and assists.

    I guess he will never have the pleasure playing for a real hockey town. Enjoy the beaches Teemu!
