Montreal Canadiens Links

  • Elliotte Friedman joined Tim & Sid yesterday to discuss the Travis Moen for Sergei Gonchar trade. His impression is that Marc Bergevin made the recent moves to make sure players like Sekac have a spot on the roster. [Sportsnet]
  • Check out all our coverage from the trade, including what it means for Jarred Tinordi and Nathan Beaulieu. [EOTP]
  • Here's Arpon Basu's take on the trade. [NHL]
  • Friedman had alluded to Bergevin forcing Therrien's hand when it came to roster choices earlier in the week. You can draw several conclusions from this, although it doesn't necessarily demonstrate a major rift between the coach and the GM. Whenever a GM can remove any margins of error, they should. [Nicholson Hockey]
  • Rene Bourque, who was recently demoted to the AHL, is taking his reassignment in stride, claiming he'll be back in the NHL, he just doesn't know when. [Hamilton Spectator]
  • In honour of Remembrance Day, Sportsnet took a look at the day the Canadiens carried the Bruins off to war. I suppose it's only fitting that Hitler is the only way Boston and Montreal could put their rivalry on hold. [Sportsnet]
  • Carey Price doesn't really care about shutouts, just wins. [Canadiens]
  • The Hamilton Bulldogs are going to raise money for the Nathan Cirillo trust, by auctioning off gear and with ticket sales. [Bar Down]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Super prospect Connor McDavid injured his hand last night, and it happened during a very useless fight. Although I think it's safe to say everyone makes bad decisions when they're 17. [SB Nation]
  • Ben Bishop suplexed Ben Smith last night. No, really. [Eye on Hockey]
  • David Krejci won't be playing versus the Habs, as he's slated to miss the next two games. [Twitter]
  • What would all 30 NHL teams look like as chain restaurants? [Pensburgh]
  • Don't laugh too much when your friend receives a pie to the face by a mascot. You've been warned. [OnThe Forecheck]
  • Stars fans are taking a sober approach towards their newly acquired forward, Travis Moen. [Defending Big D]
