Montreal Canadiens News and Notes

  • The Canadiens are in a precarious position right now, with their grasp on a playoff spot being tenuous at best. With this slump threatening to derail the team, Marc Bergevin is the man to look to for answers. [Journal Métro]
  • Bob McKenzie shared his thoughts on why Jarred Tinordi's value may have depreciated, and why Bergevin might have a tough time firing Michel Therrien. But these reasons haven't pacified frustrated fans, as both Habs Breakfast and Tony Marinaro can attest. [TSN 690 | McKenzieHabs BreakfastMarinaro]
  • Perhaps the Canadiens faithful feel extra frustrated right now because the team has not been this bad in quite a while. [Montreal Gazette]
  • The Canadiens need to trust Alex Galchenyuk at centre. Despite Therrien's reservations, Galchenyuk has performed more than adequately in his new role, and should be given a chance to play with the best wingers Montreal has to offer. [Sportsnet]
