Montreal Canadiens news and notes

  • Greg Pateryn’s agent is irritated by all the trade rumors. [La Presse]
  • Claude Julien was fine with the boo birds last night. “I’m not going to blame them.” [Labbé]
  • I joined Habs Breakfast to discuss the need to split up Weber and Emelin at once, Price’s exaggerated struggles, and more. [TSN 690]
  • Lukas Vejdemo scored both goals in 2-1 OT win
  • Andrew Shaw shot down the rumor that Michel Therrien had berated him. [Gazette]
  • Marie-Philip Poulin took to the ice with former Habs defenceman Patrice Brisebois. It must have been an honour to skate with such an accomplished player. Not everyone gets the chance be on the ice with Poulin.
  • Claude Julien did not want a pregame ceremony to commemorate his 1000th game. The Habs settled on recognizing it during the game. [Basu]
  • The more things change, the more...things change.
