Canadiens open the season vs Leafs, home opener vs Bruins

2

The NHL has released some scheduling details a bit earlier than usual this year, and the Canadiens have two big openers on the schedule, in Toronto to open the season, and against Boston to open at home. That should be fun.

Canadiens open pre-season at home against Bruins

3

According to the Boston Bruins, the pre-season for 2014-15 will kick off for us with a game against the Bruins at the Bell Centre on September 23rd, 2014. Will Dale Weise fight Milan Lucic? Hopefully not.

Leblanc traded to the Ducks

19

Earlier in the week, Andrew Berkshire posed some questions on what should be done with Louis Leblanc. Marc Bergevin seems to have answered that question in no uncertain terms by dealing the Bulldogs forward to the Anaheim ducks for a conditional fifth round draft pick in 2015. A conditional fifth round pick seems to me a bit of a weak return for a player like Louis Leblanc. Sure, he has struggled in recent years, but I would have expected a little more for someone who was drafted as high as he was. What do you think? Was this enough of a return for Leblanc?

Tim Bozon takes the ice for the first time since his illness

9

Earlier this week, Marc Bergevin noted that Tim Bozon had asked for his equipment, which he took as a good sign. Two months and 5 days after he was released from hospital, Bozon is on the ice for the first time to practice. Great news, and great to see for Tim. Bozon also posted a quick instagram video.

Canadiens have given the Panthers permission to speak to Gerard Gallant

18

According to Radio Canada, the Montreal Canadiens have given the Florida Panthers permission to speak to assistant coach Gerard Gallant about their vacant head coaching position. Gallant runs the Habs' forward lines and works on the powerplay with Clement Jodoin.

Price was ready to play in the finals

+

Despite the collision with Chris Kreider looking like a serious injury today Carey Price said he would have been ready to play had the Canadiens made it to the Stanley Cup finals. The news stings a bit but it's relieving to hear the injury is not serious and does not require surgery.

Vanek was not playing injured during playoffs

8

Despite much speculation, Vanek shot down any thoughts that he was playing hurt during the playoff run. Have fun in Minnesota, Thomas.

Carey Price practices with team

1

There's still no word on his official return, but it seems like Price is getting quite close to being healthy enough to start.

NHL won't punish Dorsett's headbutt on Weaver

6

According to Pierre Lebrun, the NHL set a dangerous precedent today, allowing Derek Dorsett to skate into game six unscathed after a full body headbutt to Mike Weaver. It's a gross thing to let go, especially considering Patrick Kaleta was banned for four games for a less dangerous headbutt.
