  • There’s no reason to bring Shea Weber back before he’s at 100%. [TSN690]
  • Did this person still consider himself lucky to step on the ice with Weber when he tried to get out of bed this morning?
  • Carey Price is having a tough time in the crease this year, but he’s far from the only netminder to be having an off-year in an offensively skewed 2018-19 season. [TSN690]
  • Briefly a member of the Canadiens, Daniel Brière is now in charge of managing a few of the organization’s lower-tier prospects. A look at the new stage of his hockey career. [La Presse]
