Montreal Canadiens: Atlantic Division Darkhorses?

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Shea Weber – (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) No one in their right mind would proclaim the Montreal Canadiens 2016-17 Atlantic Division favorites. Well, maybe ESPN in the headline of a recent piece, but the ESP in the name is purely coincidental. And, other than them, no one. Granted, that still doesn’t mean the Habs won’t find success this coming...

So is Shea Weber actually an ‘average’ NHL defenseman?

Some things in life are not terribly fair. And in the case of the P.K. Subban trade, much of the trade has become a referendum on the merits of Shea Weber. Last I checked, Weber didn’t ask to be traded to one of the most hockey-mad cities on the planet for a player who was universally loved by its fan base.

What are we going to tell the children? The thousands that flock to the Bell Centre in 76 Subban sweaters? The millions who cheer from afar, glued to their couches, the ones that can’t afford the $200 seats of the NHL’s most venerable franchise? The countless not yet helped by P.K.

Canadiens went overboard with Andrew Shaw's contract

Marc Bergevin wanted to add more grit and toughness to the Montreal Canadiens and did so by acquiring Andrew Shaw on draft day in a deal with the Chicago Blackhawks for two second-round picks.
