Thursday Habs Links: Kings take 1-0 lead in Stanley Cup Finals

Your daily dose of links concerning the Habs and hockey.

Montreal Canadiens Links

Sean Fitzgerald heard about Guy Lafleur's comments on Max Paciorettyand he laid out all the facts. Like when I wrote about it, Pacioretty comes off looking pretty good.

According to Jimmy Murphy, Gerard Gallant is the frontrunner for the head coaching job with the Panthers. His connection to Jonathan Huberdeau may give him the leg up he needs. Montreal granted Florida permission to speak with him earlier this week.

According to Johan Ekberg, the Canadiens have made it clear to Magnus Nygren that they want him in North America next year. We all know he doesn't want to play in Hamilton, so there could be a legit shot at a roster spot.

Habs prospect Jeremy Gregoire won the Guy Lafleur Award of Excellence for his outstanding 18 year old season in the QMJHL, where he scored 44 goals and 92 points in 87 games including the playoffs.

Another Habs prospect from the QMJHL, Martin Reway wants to play professional hockey next year, and if he doesn't make the Habs, he's looking at European leagues.

Around the NHL

Bob Cole doesn't plan on retiring any time soon. Marc Dumont thinks that's awesome, and I agree.

Katie Bakes and The Royal Half debated who should win the Stanley Cup.

Sean Gentille compared the two elite defensemen in the finals, Ryan McDonagh (cry-barf-cry), and Drew Doughty.

Steve Lepore from Awful Announcing unearthed this hilarious Fox Sports preview of the NHL playoffs from 1995.
