Montreal Canadiens Links

  • Profile of GM Marc Bergevin, who prefers to be called Marc, not Monsieur Bergevin. (French) [La Presse]
  • In case you missed it, Nikita Scherbak had been traded by his WHL team, the Saskatoon Blades, to the Everett Silvertips.He's settling in well in Washington, but there was some concern that his visa paperwork would keep him from playing last night. [The Everett Herald]
  • Well, he played, and with three points on opening night, it looks like he's going to fit in with his new team. [EOTP]
  • The season opener creeps closer and closer. CBC Sports sums up the Tokarski vs. Budaj argument in a few bullet points. [CBC]
  • We know he's great playing against Chicago with the kids, but Carey Price is a great guy off the ice too, with actual kids. He was just awarded the Jean Beliveau trophy, given to players with exceptional charitable actions and community involvement. He will be presented with the trophy before tonight's game at the Bell Centre. [Canadiens]
  • I know not many of you were watching last night's game, but check out this ugly brawl from Habs at Sens on Friday. Is it a new rivalry in the making? [EOTP]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Liking this profile of Mike Babcock's career with the Red Wings. Favourite part: "Mike Babcock during his tenure has had as assistants the current coach of the San Jose Sharks, the Ottawa Senators, and the Carolina Hurricanes." He's the coach whom other coaches want to be when they grow up. [Winging it in Motown]

  • Too bad even Babcock couldn't avoid this one: Red Wings were late for their game Friday because they were stuck in a Toronto gridlock. [CBS Sports]
  • Former Captain of Ottawa Senators Settles and Enjoys New Life - this is slowly becoming its own genre of hockey articles. But yes, Jason Spezza is indeed taking things easy in Dallas. [Defending Big D]
  • Arizona Coyotes might be sold to someone with actual money to throw around. Meanwhile, rumblings are afoot in Seattle. Either way, Gary Bettman is a genius. [SB Nation]
  • From Presidents Trophy winners to...whatever the Vancouver Canucks were last season, a new season must heavily rely on their rookies and newcomers. [The Hockey Writers]
  • Hilary Knight practiced with the Anaheim Ducks on Friday:
