Taking a closer look at the Canadiens start to the season.

With a few days to go until the next Montreal Canadiens game, Habsent Minded was joined by Jason Paul from WaveIntel in order to get a better understanding of the underlying numbers for some of the new additions to the Montreal Canadiens.

How good is Joel Edmundson? Jason has been critical of Joel Edmundson before, has his impression changed with the good start of the season?

Can Brett Kulak thrive with Alexander Romanov on his side, has Kulak changed his style of play this season? Also, what leeway does Claude Julien give Romanov?

While focus has been on the goals that Montreal Canadiens has scored while on the penalty kill, Jason Paul thinks that the numbers tells us that the penalty kill is actually quite bad. He offers an interesting solution to this problem, and would that be possible with the emergence of Jake Evans?
