Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau has struggled to score for the Montreal Canadiens this season, and yet the trade that brought him to Montreal is still a good trade.

31

Using hindsight and fortune telling skills; see what could have happened to the Montreal Canadiens if two trades had/hadn't happened.

Changing the usage of the fourth line

With teams insisting on carrying unskilled bottom trios, are the Montreal Canadiens creating a mismatch situation by playing Sven Andrighetto on the fourth line?

Merci Saku

20

Saku Koivu was a great leader for the Canadiens, but more importantly, is a great human being.

Price & Subban for McDavid? Nah

For most of the season, player usage has shifted up front. Following Lars Eller's injury another, possibly more significant shift has occurred.

105

The Montreal Canadiens have recently acquired two old defencemen on expiring contracts. The deals make sense when looking at next summer and the seasons that follow.

Let's be honest, the Habs GM hasn't leaked a single trade yet, and probably won't any time soon.

Lucic should have been automatically suspended

58

As per usual, Milan Lucic made an ass out of himself. But his seemingly ridiculous glove toss not only made him the laughing stock of the league, but should have led to a suspension.
