Montreal Canadiens

  • What the Canadiens can learn from the Lightning and the Blackhawks: deploy defensemen wisely. [A Winning Habit]

  • Should Montreal pursue RFAs this off-season? [TSN 690]

  • I've linked it before, but I think more people deserve a chance to appreciate Guy Lafleur's 1970s instructional disco record. He contributes only in spoken word, and the album is called Lafleur!. [Vice]


Around the League and Elsewhere

  • The Detroit Red Wings can trade Jimmy Howard, but they're not going to find a better fit for their current situation with his talent and cap hit. [Winging it in Motown]

  • Is there any other team in the NHL whose roster is as turbulent as the Edmonton Oilers'? But anyways, here are more suggestions for off-season moves. [Copper and the Blue]

  • The cast for Goon 2: the return of the main cast, plus Elisha Cuthbert as Eva's sister, plus

  • Wyatt Russell as the team's new captain. [TSN]

  • Ben Bishop didn't practice yesterday, and he will be evaluated for game play today. [NHL]

  • You may recall this article about Finland's only NHL commentator, so now meet Longmou Li, China's only NHL colour commentator. [The Star]
  • Thanks to the success of the Blackhawks, black fans have the highest growth rate in Chicago for NHL fans. [Chicago Tribune]
  • More on the Arizona Coyotes mess. "If the Coyotes’ mess is a circus, then the Glendale City Council is the organ grinder with the dancing monkey". [Puck Daddy]
  • According to Mark Spector, precedence suggests that the Coyotes will not be moving. He has a fantastic Game of Thrones way of putting it: "Bettman will not be pushed into a relocation by some city council making an election power play. If he were to appear weak in Glendale, what ideas might that spawn in Sunrise? Or Raleigh?" Why can't these peasants just stay peacefully oppressed? [Sportsnet]
  • Like the Islanders, the New York Rivetersof the NWHL will move from Long Island to Brooklyn. [Today's Slapshot]
