Montreal Canadiens news and notes

  • It had been previously speculated that Kevin Shattenkirk would find a nice temporary home in Montreal were he to land there as a deadline rental. The news today is that he has the Canadiens on his 12-team trade list, and would be open to the idea of a long-term stay with the club. [Sportsnet]
  • It’s difficult to find fault with Alexander Radulov’s play this year, but if the Canadiens are going to re-sign him to a big contract extension, a full understanding of his skill set is necessary. [Sportsnet]
  • With another goal in last night’s game, some more evidence of just how good Max Pacioretty is:
  • You may have been shaking your head at Al Montoya’s stumble on the first goal yesterday. He was doing the same. [Amanda Stein]
  • Playing well but taking a loss can no longer be seen as a moral victory for the slumping Habs, as Nathan Beaulieu attests. [Heather Engel]

  • The in-arena announcer referred to the CWHL’s Brampton Thunder as the ECHL’s Canadiens-affiliated Brampton Beast on a few occasions during Saturday’s All-Star Game. Their official Twitter accounts had an exchange about that. [Twitter]

  • That plan got a boost from a new partnership with the NHLPA. [CBC]
