Sunday Habs Links: Will it be Subban vs Subban tonight?

New, comments

Here are your daily links, including Dale Weise on the top line, Scott Gomez on his years in Montreal, P.K Subban for the Habs Children's Foundation campaign, and more.

Montreal Canadiens

  • Dale Weise on the first line - like it or hate it, as long as Pacioretty is still producing, it's happening. [La Presse] (French)
  • Scott Gomez talks about his three years in Montreal: "Let's just say I'm glad Pat Burns and Joe Nieuwendyk taught me not to read the papers." [New Jersey]
  • Malcolm Subban is still waiting for his first NHL regular season game, but even if they do want to rest Rask, Svedberg is only a call-up away. Still, am I the only one dying to see a Boston Subban vs. Montreal Subban matchup?
  • Petr Svoboda discusees Jaromir Jagr and his connection to the Canadiens, and speculates whether Jagr could fit in the team. [TSN 690]
  • P.K. Subban's video for the Montreal Canadiens Children's Foundation's Engagement campaign. I hope you be yourself forever, P.K.

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Toronto Maples Leafs just set a new record with their 11th loss in a row. Hold on, this gets better: this loss breaks a franchise record set back in 1967, i.e. the Leafs' last Stanley Cup year. [Puck Daddy]
  • The hockey teams of the Rochester Institue of Technology will honour their student manager Joe Vicario, who suffers from Goldenhar Syndrome and is a testicular cancer survivor. The teams will wear special jerseys on Feb. 7 and auction them off to raise money for charity. [RIT Athletics]
  • If you were a coach whose team is playing back-to-back games, should you play your starter goalie on the first night, on the second night, or on both? Jonathan Willis breaks it down. [Sportsnet]
  • Gordie Howe.just attended a special dinner held in Saskatoon in his honour, surrounded by his family, friends, and other great hockey legends. [ESPN]
  • The New York Times has a piece on hockey lingo. Uh, has anyone other than Peter Laviolette ever referred to a player as playing with "jam"? [New York Times]
  • Listen to Bob McKenzie breaking down the Evander Kane saga.  [TSN 690]
  • Watch New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski spike the puck before a Bruins game. I'm still laughing at the way he gestures to the Islander's C to get out of his way. Poor John Tavares deserves better than this.
