A year with EOTP: Our favourite articles from the last year

2015 was a big year for Habs Eyes On The Prize. Marc stepped up with Andrew's departure, and the site developed improved coverage of the St. John's IceCaps. We started coverage of women's hockey, and even branched out across the Atlantic for regular coverage of Habs prospects, and hockey in Europe.

We know you don't sit by the computer waiting for every one of our articles to come out (but, really, why don't you? You should start). So we decided to put together this list of some of our most memorable and favourite pieces from last year.

And in case you are wondering why we're doing a Best of 2015 in February 2016, blame Marc Bergevin. He was helping us make the list and, well, we know it takes him time to make his decisions...

The list is a mix of all of our coverage and from breaking news to analysis to opinion. And is presented in no particular order.
