Carey Price – (Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports) The horrendous start to the 2017-18 season for the Montreal Canadiens can be summed up best by four points. It’s not just that, now six games into the season entering action Thursday night, they don’t even have four actual points and have four individual regulation losses (five in

Yes, technically defenseman Mark Streit is still a member of the Montreal Canadiens… for now.

Having since been placed on waivers, Streit had initially signed a one-year, $700,000 deal with

Despite only playing in a total of four games with the Montreal Canadiens to date, it didn’t take long for Jonathan Drouin to make an impact on his community.

In a piece likely to amplify the very things he despises, Jack Todd in the Montreal Gazette takes on the rise of Habs “hate fans.” Todd calls the quality of debate in Habs nation ugly. He writes: The debate as it is framed today is unpleasant. It’s pointless. Above all, it’s irrational. It detracts considerably from

It’s that time of the year… prediction season for the upcoming 2017-18 Montreal Canadiens campaign. While the Canadiens have improved in some areas this past summer, their defense is a big question mark. Goaltender Carey Price remains the team’s focal point, but without a mobile blue line to transition from out of the defensive zone,

At this time last year, Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin was coming off a polarizing summer. Following an offseason during which he traded P.K. Subban for Shea Weber and signed Alexander Radulov, Bergevin received a passing grade. Will he be so lucky heading into 2017-18? Looking at moves that are projected to impact just

Most everyone wants a piece of New York Islanders captain John Tavares. You can probably add the Montreal Canadiens to that list, seeing as they’re (supposedly) in need of a No. 1 center, and Tavares fits the bill perfectly: He’s 6’1”, 210 pounds, still in his mid-20s with presumably plenty of good to great years

It turns out the Montreal Canadiens actually have many options at center for the upcoming season. Unfortunately, “many” simply implies quantity over quality. Nevertheless, while head coach Claude Julien has some work to do on that front (assuming general manager Marc Bergevin doesn’t on his end), there are some diamonds in the rough that could
