Max Domi Sucker-Punched Aaron Ekblad

NHL opening night is less than two weeks away, and it’s safe to assume the Canadiens, mired in mediocrity and dysfunction, feel like they have a lot to prove. They’re also not going to be very good at hockey, which is often a recipe for a team eager to scrap. Yes, even in preseason.

The Golden Knights And Canadiens Made A Fascinating Trade The Golden Knights And Canadiens Made A Fascinating Trade

The second-year Vegas Golden Knights are operating as if they’re in win-now mode, and why not? They absolutely are. Meanwhile the Montreal Canadiens are trading away their captain in the middle of the night. So that’s how things are going!

The Islanders Got Hilariously Outshot And Still Won The Islanders Got Hilariously Outshot And Still Won

The Montreal Canadiens got 56 shots on goal against goalie Thomas Greiss and the New York Islanders. On the defensive end, they only gave up 24 shots. Somehow, they still couldn’t win, as a John Tavares overtime goal and a truly dreadful performance from Carey Price handed Montreal a 5-4 loss in ridiculous fashion.

Shea Weber's 500th Point Was A Curveball Shea Weber's 500th Point Was A Curveball

The Canadiens had looked like they’d gotten things figured out, winning five straight since the return of Carey Price from injury. (Funny how that works. You get the best goaltender in the world back in net, and he gives up six total goals in five games, and you win them all, and suddenly you’re third in the…

There's Carey Price Injury Drama Again There's Carey Price Injury Drama Again

Canadiens goalie Carey Price has an overall save percentage of .877 and hasn’t looked like himself all season. He hasn’t played at all since Nov. 2, when he gave up five goals against Minnesota in a 6-3 loss. The team initially ruled Price as day-to-day with a “lower body injury,” but now it’s a little more…

This Is The Sort Of Weird Controversy That Always Seems To Happen In Montreal, Huh? This Is The Sort Of Weird Controversy That Always Seems To Happen In Montreal, Huh?

Alex Galchenyuk has struggled this season, scoring just two points with zero assists in 10 games as he’s been shuffled up and down the Canadiens’ lineups. The left winger was on the top line as recently as last week; he was on the fourth line in last night’s 4-0 loss to the Kings. As Galchenyuk goes, so goes the Habs,…

Lightning Send Jonathan Drouin To Montreal Lightning Send Jonathan Drouin To Montreal

In the first of what I hope are many blockbuster trades over the next couple of days, the Tampa Bay Lightning are sending forward Jonathan Drouin and a conditional sixth-round 2018 draft pick to the Montreal Canadiens for defense prospect Mikhail Sergachev and a conditional 2018 second-round pick. We don’t yet know…

Alexander Radulov Is Older, Wiser, And As Good As Ever Alexander Radulov Is Older, Wiser, And As Good As Ever

When Alexander Radulov got going, so did the Canadiens. Montreal’s 2-1 series lead over the Rangers has been driven by the 30-year-old winger’s five points in the last two games, including this absurd one-handed beauty to seal Game 3:

Marc Bergevin Is A Master Of Disguise

Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin pulled off a gag with a potted plant at Monday’s session of the NHL GM meetings. He must have enjoyed that brief moment of time in which he didn’t have to field any questions about P.K. Subban.

Montreal Still Loves P.K. Subban And The Feeling Is Apparently Mutual  Montreal Still Loves P.K. Subban And The Feeling Is Apparently Mutual 

Before P.K. Subban’s first game back in Montreal after the Canadiens traded him to the Nashville Predators last year, the Habs paid tribute to their former defenseman.

What In The Damn Heck, Canadiens Fire Michel Therrien And Hire Claude Julien What In The Damn Heck, Canadiens Fire Michel Therrien And Hire Claude Julien

On the one hand this was so painfully obvious, and on the other hand, holy shit. The first-place Montreal Canadiens have fired head coach Michel Therrien amid a skid, and hired former Bruins coach Claude Julien, who was out of work for seven days, which was seven days too long.

Shea Weber Scores In Return To Nashville Shea Weber Scores In Return To Nashville

It still feels strange to see Shea Weber in a Canadiens uniforms—he might’ve been the only player in franchise history to look right in Predators yellow—but at least the building and the crowd and the cheers were familiar. After 11 seasons there, Weber played his first game back in Nashville since a stunning offseason…

Carey Price Unleashed The Goalie Fury Upon Kyle Palmieri Carey Price Unleashed The Goalie Fury Upon Kyle Palmieri

Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price snapped in the first period of Thursday’s game and beat the hell out of New Jersey Devils winger Kyle Palmieri.

Andrew Shaw Gets Penalty, Breaks Stuff, Swears A Lot

Andrew Shaw had scored the Canadiens’ first goal with two minutes left in Tuesday’s game against the Ducks, but he hampered Montreal’s chances at tying when he received a hooking penalty with 27 seconds left. Shaw took his rage out on his stick—and eventually, a bunch of other sticks.

Is This Sports?

Report: Canadiens' Analytics Guy Let Go After Telling Team Not To Trade P.K. Subban Report: Canadiens' Analytics Guy Let Go After Telling Team Not To Trade P.K. Subban

Matt Pfeffer had a one-year contract as an analytics consultant for the Montreal Canadiens, and the team reportedly informed him Wednesday that it wouldn’t be renewed for the upcoming season. According to one report, Pfeffer had strongly argued not to trade defenseman P.K. Subban, and lost more than that battle.

Holy Shit, The Canadiens Traded P.K. Subban Holy Shit, The Canadiens Traded P.K. Subban

Minutes after the Oilers sent Taylor Hall to the Devils for Adam Larsson, the Montreal Canadiens traded P.K. Subban to the Nashville Predators for Shea Weber in a one-for-one trade. The hockey stove is so fucking hot.

No Canadian NHL Teams Made The Stanley Cup Playoffs This Year, Woe Be Unto The North No Canadian NHL Teams Made The Stanley Cup Playoffs This Year, Woe Be Unto The North

Been to Canada lately? Everything’s marked down. Five years ago, the loonie was at historic highs against the greenback. Lately the Canadian dollar will get you about 77 American pennies, a partial result of Canada having yoked its economy to crude oil, which in 2014 went off a frickin’ cliff. Every loonie that a…

P.K. Subban Stretchered Off The Ice After Hit To The Neck

Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban was stretchered off the ice late in the third period of a win over the Sabres, after getting hit by teammate Alexei Emelin. Subban was battling with Marcus Foligno in the corner when he fell to his knees, and his neck was sort of backed into by Emelin. Subban immediately went down and…

The Canadiens' Automated Twitter Promotion Has Gone Horribly Awry The Canadiens' Automated Twitter Promotion Has Gone Horribly Awry

I thought we’d already learned our lesson here. Just like the New England Patriots, the Montreal Canadiens decided to celebrate reaching one million followers on Twitter by creating custom avatar jerseys with Twitter handles. But the Canadiens were so lazy that they didn’t even bother to filter out swear words—not…
