Montreal Canadiens

  • Jarred Tinordi gives a short interview to Teri Pecoskie. [Soundcloud]
  • Hamilton Bulldogs forward Maxime Macenauer just turned 26.  He talks about facing the reality that he's no longer a "prospect" and the possibility of continuing his career in Europe. A reminder that not everyone always achieves their dream. [La Presse] (French)
  • TSN puts Nikita Scherbak at spot 26 for their list of top 30 NHL-affiliated prospects, which, coincidentally, is also his draft position. They've also listed the top three prospects for each team. Can you guess which other Habs prospects made the cut (and in what order)? [TSN]
  • Mario Tremblay is in favour of replacing David Desharnais at centre with a Max Pacioretty - Tomas Plekanec - Brendan Gallagher combination. [RDS] (French)

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Watch Brad Marchand's slew-footing of Derick Brassard. It's cool though; Marchand was hit with a two-game suspension and will forfeit $48,387.10 in salary.
  • Signing good defensemen is tough, but the New York Rangers are making a mistake shelling out top dollar for Marc Staal. Check out this stats breakdown for the reasons why. [Sporting News]
  • A referee almost credits a goal to the "Atlanta Ducks."  The Thrashers live on in spirit, I guess. [SB Nation]
  • Are the Dallas Stars improving on defense, or are they just going through a lucky streak? Josh Lile breaks down Dallas' goaltending and shot quality. [Defending Big D]
  • Should we rename the Lady Byng Trophy after Jean Béliveau? Colby Cosh argues that while Béliveau deserves to be honoured (and is), hockey should avoid tampering with its charmingly-antique trophies. [Maclean's]
  • A Monster Mash remix about Dustin Byfuglien is everything I never knew I needed. Groove out to Byfuglien Bash, as performed by Bartley Kives. [Winnipeg Free Press]
  • Scratch that. A montage of Byfuglien hits set to Super Mario music is everything I didn't know I needed. The perfect chaser to Byfuglien Bash, Steve Dangle presents Super Byfuglien. [Sportsnet]
