The former mantra of the Canadiens is no more. Well, I suppose that I have to say I’m not the least bit surprised at this bit of news. The famous sign in the Canadiens dressing room that once read "No Excuses" has now vanished from it’s former place on the wall. The #habs have removed the slogan "No Excuses" from the wall of their locker room. What should they replace...

Undrafted, Charlie Lindgren played his way to an NHL contract and a spot on our list last year.

During his three years at St. Cloud State University, he showed consistent improvement...

Where Canadiens Forward Alexander Radulov Fits in

Alexander Radulov – (Photo: Vadim Kitayev, www.ak-bars.ru) There’s no question the Montreal Canadiens got themselves a bargain, signing Alexander Radulov this summer. Where he’ll fit into the lineup is a different matter altogether, though. Now that he’s officially met the Montreal media for the first time, it’s perhaps time to ask it. In fact, that specific question,...

Canadiens 2016 Top 25 Under 25: #17 Daniel Audette

Another good offensive showing in his final year of junior hockey bodes well for the start of Audette’s professional career. A shoulder injury sustained in late October kept Daniel Audette out of action for over a month just as the season was getting underway. As a result he was limited to just 52 games for the QMJHL’s Sherbrooke Phoenix; the fewest he dressed for in any season...

The Best Move Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin Didn’t Make

Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin – (Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports) Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin didn’t have the best summer. Even if you’re a fan of all his offseason moves, he still undeniably received a fair bit of flak for several of them, not the least of which was the much-maligned P.K. Subban trade.

Analyzing Montreal’s Leadership Core

As the Montreal Canadiens’ season spiraled from a slump to an embarrassment, one thing that became apparent was the lack of leadership as the season wore on.

Shea Weber making himself at home with Montreal Canadiens

TERREBONE, Quebec (AP) Shea Weber knows all about the outrage Montreal Canadiens fans expressed when he was acquired from Nashville for P.K. Subban. And the big defenseman knows his every move will be scrutinized and compared to the flashy Subban.

2016-17 Season Preview: Montreal Canadiens
