Montreal Canadiens Links
- The NHL awards show took place last night, and the highlight had to be drunk Cuba Gooding Jr making everything as awkward as possible. I really hope he hosts next year.
- Here is a list of all the award winners.
- Carey Price finished 4th in Vezina voting.
- Marc Bergevin finished 2nd for GM of the year.
- Tomas Plekanec finished 7th in the Selke vote, which is his first ever top 10. About damn time.
- Michel Therrien received one vote as the third best coach, which confirms that either Pat Hickey or Dave Stubbs filled out their ballot.
- PK Subban was interviewing people backstage, here's his interview with big time award winner Sidney Crosby.
- Adam Gretz doesn't think teams should be afraid of Ales Hemsky, and I have to agree.
- Noah Love over at the National Post examined the situation the Habs find themselves in heading into free agency.
- Subban is at the top of the pile in terms of priorities for Marc Bergevin, which shouldn't surprise anyone.
- Patrice Bergeron beat out PK Subban for the EA Sports cover vote. Thank god that annoying marketing scheme is over.
- Habs fan George Stroumbouloupopopopopoulos took a shot at Milan Lucic during the closing of the NHL awards last night. Take a look. (I can't wait until he runs the show on Hockey Night in Canada next year!)
Around the NHL
- Japers' Rink produced an excellent piece on the quality of competition for CHL defencemen. It's well worth a look.
- Is Patrick Sharp on the move? Apparently the Hawks are shopping him.
- Craig Button completed his mock draft ahead of this weekend's NHL draft. Barbashev would be a great pick for the Habs.
- Bob McKenzie released his list of the top prospects. Our pick in the mock draft, David Pastrnak, is ranked 22nd.
