Montreal Canadiens

  • Sean Bergenheim, a Florida Panthers forward, is attracting some interest from the Montreal Canadiens, along with the Winnipeg Jets and the Vancouver Canucks. Panthers are asking for a third round pick.  [TSN Insider]

  • Is Bergenheim worth it? The EOTP take. [EOTP]

  • Hamilton Bulldogs coach Sylvain Lefebvre talks about the recent call-ups. About Jarred Tinordi: "He worked on the things he needs to work on. That's the way he is. He's a very mature kid, he's a very hardworking kid, and he stayed that way. That's why he's going to play in the NHL on a regular basis, someday." [TSN 690] (Podcast)

  • So many players are gone: Alex Galchenyuk missed yesterday's game vs. the Panthers.

  • Sergei Gonchar's gone.
  • Alexei Emelin will be out up to six weeks for his shoulder.

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Eric Desjardins won the Cup with the Habs, and he even scored three goals for Montreal in game 2 of the Cup finals. He still identifies as a Philadelphia Flyer though, which is good, because he's in their Hall of Fame. [Montreal Gazette]

  • These NHL trade chains map out the long-term effects of major Boston Bruins trades. "Even if it's not immediate, trading star players in the prime of their career is almost always a losing proposition in the long run." [CBS Sports]

  • What hope does the Toronto Maple Leafs have, in this year's draft? If you don't draft a generational talent from the top three picks, how likely are you to even get a decent player? [The Star]

  • Best (or quickest) way to start a fistfight among hockey stat nerds: is Jonathan Quick an elite goalie or just a lucky one? TSN breaks it down. [TSN]

  • The two trades that almost altered the Detroit Red Wings' history. Note: Even given the theory of an infinite number of alternate universes, I can't believe there exists a reality where a Pavel Datsyuk for Scott Gomez trade was seriously considered. Wow.  [Winging it in Motown]

  • The NHL webcam for the Stadium Series captures a surprise crow, and we all know that surprise crows are the best kind of crows.
