Montreal Canadiens News and Notes

  • Columbus Blue Jackets' general manager Jarmo Kekäläinen had high praise for Trevor Timmins. Kekäläinen believes that Timmins too will become a general manager one day. [La Presse]
  • Guess who's at Las Vegas for the NHL Awards! [Twitter]
  • Carey Price shared his thoughts on a hockey team in Las Vegas, last season's playoffs and his own performance. He also reiterated the fact the Canadiens are comfortable winning games by 1-0 or 2-1 margins. [Canadiens] [Part 2]
  • Whatever criticism was levied at him earlier on in his career, only served to make Carey Price a better goaltender moving forward. The Hart, Vezina and Ted Lindsay awards nominee is focused on a trophy more elusive. [NHL]
  • Price will be joined in Las Vegas by teammate PK Subban. Subban also addressed the media and talked about his second Norris nomination, Chicago's success and reflected on his own season. [Canadiens] [Part 2]
  • The odds are in Carey Price's favour. In fact, the odds that Price will win the Vezina trophy is currently at an incredible 1/100! [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • While Price is almost guaranteed to win the Vezina trophy today, there is still a fan out there who thinks Price should be traded. Yes, seriously. [TSN 690]
  • Congratulations to the Plekanecs! [Twitter]

Around The League and Elsewhere

  • With the NHL Awards set to get underway today, check out the cases made for the other candidates who are competing against Price and Subban:
  • Some changes are in the works for the NHL next season. [Twitter]
  • What if the existing lottery draft was done away with entirely? Instead, teams would have then have opportunity to bid on draft eligible players. [National Post]
  • With teams like the Boston Bruins, LA Kings and Chicago Blackhawks being squeezed against the cap, they may be the perfect targets to be dual offer sheeted. [TSN]
  • Not all moves made in the offseason end up panning out, but take a look at five moves from the previous offseason that did. [Grantland]
