Montreal Canadiens Links

The province is reporting that defensive prospect Dalton Thrower left practice early Monday with an ankle issue, and is likely done for the season. Details here.

Journal de Montreal is reporting that the Canadiens and P.K. Subban are more than $1 million per year apart in contract negotiations. Not altogether surprising.

Scott Lewis of The Score joined the campaign urging the Canadiens to wake up regarding Douglas Murray.

Galchenyuk and Eller go at it in another weird duel.

Around the NHL

Chris Boyle discusses Martin Brodeur over at Sportsnet, illustrating how his atrocious clean-shot save percentage, amongst other things, has cost the Devils serious points.

Gus Katsaros has another great look at defensive strategy, focusing on the idea of letting a forward win a puck battle.

Scott Burnside writes a touching piece about a friendship he gained through hockey, and how the game can bring people together. I think a lot of us can relate.

Justin Bourne of The Score lists 5 ways for players to fit in on new teams.

He also renewed his Beerability rankings, which for the most part I completely agree with.
