Montreal Canadiens Links

  • Anthony Cirelli scored in overtime to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-1 victory over the Kelowna Rockets in the Memorial Cup final last night night. Canadiens top prospect Michael McCarron ends his junior career as a National champion. Get stoked, Habs fans. [Sportsnet]
  • Devante Smith-Pelly wasn't shy about voicing his pleasure with the Chicago Blackhawks Game 7 victory against his former team the Anaheim Ducks[TVA]
  • It's a common theme, especially in the media: The Habs are too small. But do they really need to get bigger? Bob Sullivan offers his take. [RDS]
  • Many believe that a first line player must score at a point-per-game pace. That isn't necessarily the case. So what makes a first line scorer, and how do the Canadiens stack up against the rest of the league? Our own Andrew Berkshire has the answer, and you might be surprised. [EOTP]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Elliot Friedman is back with another fantastic edition of "30 Thoughts". Many believe that this could be the last stand for the Chicago Blackhawks, but that might be far from the case. The Blackhawks have many solid young players primed to play big role's in the future, meaning they can afford to move some pieces in the off-season. [Sportsnet]
  • Ryan Kesler gave it his absolute all for the Anaheim Ducks, playing a critical role in their playoff run. But unfortunately, it just wasn't enough. [Puck Daddy]
  • The TSN panel questions who has the edge in the Stanley Cup finals between the Blackhawks and the Tampa Bay Lightning[TSN]
  • Despite winning just one of their last seven games against the Lightning dating back to 2011, the betting odds still favour the Blackhawks. [Sportsnet]
