Montreal Canadiens Links

  • It's no secret that Max Pacioretty is a favourite to become the 29th captain in Habs history. The teams leading scorer continues to emerge as a star, and he has drawn great praise from many including Mrs. Beliveau. She says that he reminds her of Jean, and that she hopes he is the next captain of the team. [TVA]
  • It seems as though every day we're talking about yet another accomplishment by Carey Price. He continues to add to his magnificent season, chasing Canadiens legends in the process. [The Gazette]
  • We recently heard Jiri Sekac speak out about head coach Michel Therrien and the teams system as a whole. Rene Bourque decided to speak out about his former head coach as well, saying: "Michel Therrien and I didn’t have the best relationship. We didn’t communicate. I didn’t know what he wanted from me, or vice versa." Our Andrew Berkshire offers an interesting take, saying that his gripe with Therrien isn't legitimate. [Eyes On The Prize]
  • Pierre Houde speaks about what to expect from the Habs in the remaining 16 games of the season. Houde suggests Price should play about a dozen games the rest of the way (bringing his total to 65), while speaking about what the team might do when Alexei Emelin returns to the lineup. [RDS]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • We just couldn't get through a weekend without more drama from the Toronto Maple Leafs. Fresh off an embarrassing 6-1 defeat at the hands of the St. Louis Blues, forward Nazem Kadri was sent home from Sunday's practice after arriving late. He could be a healthy scratch on Monday. [The Star]
  • NHL top prospect Connor McDavid extended his ridiculous point streak to 27 games yesterday. The Erie Otters star notched a pair of assists in a 5-3 victory. [TSN]
  • In case you have been living under a rock, McDavid is drawing tons of attention. In fact, he's selling out arenas all across the Ontario Hockey League. [Sportsnet]
  • The Pittsburgh Penguins are often praised for their phenomenal offensive ability, but they're also becoming one of the best defensive teams in hockey. [CBS Sports]
  • Lastly, It’s been a rather difficult year for Carolina Hurricanes forward Alexander Semin, but there’s no doubt we’ll remember him for this goal of the year candidate. Check out this absolutely incredible no-look spinning goal from his stomach. [SB Nation]
