Montreal Canadiens

  • Carey Price remains the reason why the Habs continue to be one of the best teams in the NHL, despite posting underwhelming possession numbers. But are the Habs relying on him too much? [TSN]
  • P.K. Subban's powerplay prowess has been on full display lately. Here's the proof. [EOTP]
  • Speaking of Price, when asked about how he felt about the hockey environment in Montreal, he responded with the following. "I see it as a challenge to try and win here, and to be able to succeed in that would be my ultimate goal." [NHL]
  • Tensions between Saku Koivu and Mike Ribeiro may have facilitated Ribeiro's odd trade to the Dallas Stars. [LaPresse - French]

  • Daniel Carcillo isn't well-liked in the league, having served several suspensions and gained a reputation as a dirty player. Yet, he continues to be employed by various teams in the NHL in part due to his baggage. [Puck Daddy]  
  • Zac Rinaldo drilled Kris Letang from behind during the match between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins. [Sportsnet]
    • The Department of Player Safety has looked at the hit and granted Rinaldo the option of an in-person hearing to defend his case:
