Bergevin Was Right to Trade Galchenyuk for Domi

At times, you may end up being right for the wrong reasons. The ends justify the means, though. That’s the situation Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin finds himself in a half-year after acquiring Max Domi from the Arizona Coyotes for Alex Galchenyuk. Domi vs. Galchenyuk As Domi and the Canadiens prepare to face Galchenyuk’s Coyotes ahead of the All-Star break, a quick glance at the stats reveals a seemingly lopsided trade in favor of the Canadiens. Galchenyuk has half of Domi’s ...

Markstrom Is the Canucks’ Second-Biggest Surprise

The Vancouver Canucks are doing much better than anyone predicted at the start of the 2018-19 season. For Canuck fans, there are two obvious reasons. First, Elias Pettersson has emerged as bona fide star. Watch him walking into the locker room prior to a game and he looks a bit “bookish.” On the ice, he’s little short of amazing. In less than half a season, he’s established himself as the team’s current star and bright light for the future. He’s been the greatest surprise of the Canucks’ s...

Sabres’ 10-Game Win Streak – a Blessing or Curse?

On Nov. 27, as the Buffalo Sabres tallied their 10th straight win, a 3-2 overtime victory over the San Jose Sharks, excitement and euphoria filled KeyBank Center. They seemed as sure of a thing as ever to make the playoffs for the first time since the 2010-11 season. That feels like eons ago.  The Sabres’ 10-Game Winning Streak Looking back, “The Streak” may have been the worst thing to happen to the team at the time. While wins are wins–they all look the same in the standings–the 10-game...

Galchenyuk Ready for Montreal Return With the Coyotes

TORONTO — Alex Galchenyuk took some time to fully grasp the microscope he would be under as a member of the Montreal Canadiens. Selected third overall at the 2012 NHL draft, the naive assumption of a teenager was every team in the league got similar media attention. It was only after players started arriving from other organizations that Galchenyuk realized the magnitude of Montreal’s fishbowl.

4 Questions the Penguins Will Face After the All-Star Break

The Pittsburgh Penguins will head into the 2019 All-Star break with a 26-16-6 record, good for 58 points and fourth place in a tight Metropolitan Division. The team is holding on to the second wild-card spot for dear life despite having the fourth-best goal differential in the Eastern Conference. There’s still plenty of reason to be optimistic about the Penguins though, especially for a team that was tied for the fewest points in the East on Nov. 20. Pittsburgh is home to multiple all-time...

Is Hockey Living Dr. King’s Dream?

On Monday, Jan 21, much of the United States will enjoy a holiday – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Many will celebrate the legacy of the slain civil rights leader in parades. Some will attend services commemorating Dr. King and his work. Others will ponder “the dream” that still resonates from his famous speech given at the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963. Who Broke Hockey’s Color Barrier? Sports has been an arena in which there have been many strides made in seeing Dr. King’s speech come to l...

Canucks' Pettersson returns Sunday after five-game absence

The man who will likely be crowned as the NHL's Rookie of the Year is back in the lineup for the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday. Elias Pettersson will suit up for the Canucks against the Detroit Red Wings after missing five games with a knee injury.

Are the Maple Leafs Simply Not Good Enough?

After John Tavares signed as a Toronto Maple Leaf last summer, the hopes of the fans were buoyant. Certainly, this was to be the season the team would contend for the Stanley Cup after so many seasons of frustration. With the exception of the drama of William Nylander’s extended holdout, everything looked so promising. This team would rock! That hasn’t happened. After a strong start, the Maple Leafs are on a losing skid no one saw coming. In fact, with last night’s 4-2 loss against the sud...

The 8 Best Defensive Forwards in Hockey History

  To many, high scoring, firewagon hockey carries the highest degree of entertainment. While others, this author included, prefer the bite-your-nails-to-the-knuckle closeness of a hard-fought, tactically masterful, defensive battle. Though many may not realize it while clamoring for larger nets, the elimination of the offside whistle and marbles to replace hockey pucks, the sporting world turns to the tightly-contested Stanley Cup Playoffs for the most rugged marathon of organized on the world s...

The Time for Canadiens to Ride Price Isn’t This Season

It‘s easy to second-guess the Montreal Canadiens whenever head coach Claude Julien plays Antti Niemi over Carey Price, like he did against the Philadelphia Flyers. It shouldn’t be about winning individual games at this point, though. It’s more about the long game. Niemi Loses to Flyers Obviously, considering the theoretical goal for the Canadiens is to compete for a playoff spot, results like their 5-2 loss to the non-playoff-bound Flyers don’t really help. There were a few other factors at pl...

Blues’ Perron Proving to be Perfect Signing

With no disrespect to David Perron, the news that the winger had signed once again with the St. Louis Blues last summer was met with mixed reactions. Very few were excited. Many were indifferent. Some were disgusted. After a disappointing 2017-18 season in which the Blues missed the playoffs for the first time in over half a decade, the team’s decision to turn yet again to Perron, who had departed to the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft a year prior, was simply not the impact mo...

The 2019 Calder Trophy Race

The discussion surrounding the Calder Memorial Trophy race heading into the 2018-19 season felt very similar to 2017-18 as there was no one clear-cut favorite at the start. Unlike in 2015-16 and 2016-17, there wasn’t a generational talent like Connor McDavid or Austin Matthews taking over headlines as they made their NHL debuts. Of course, that didn’t mean this was a weak crop of rookies this season, as almost every team in the league had one or two rookies who looked primed to make an imm...

Bruins Need Pivotal Piece to Become Cup Contenders

The Boston Bruins’ 2018-19 season has been a rollercoaster, and we haven’t even made it to the All-Star break. It started with a 7-0 loss to the Washington Capitals on opening night that left those in Boston dumbfounded. They followed this up with four wins, however, immediately proving the naysayers wrong. There was one issue: the Bruins were relying heavily upon their top-line trio of David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. This was quickly targeted by the opposition, and the...

Canadiens Beat Blue Jackets – Tatar & Armia With Two

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Tomas Tatar and Joel Armia each scored twice, Carey Price stopped 34 shots and the Montreal Canadiens beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-1 on Friday night. The Canadiens have won four in a row and five of the last six in trying to make a move out of the middle of the Atlantic Division. Joonas Korpisalo had 22 saves for the Blue Jackets, who saw a four-game win streak snapped. Columbus plays the second leg of a back-to-back on Saturday before heading into their bye week and the All...

Gorges Remained Loyal to Canadiens to the End

Even as the walls were closing in on his time with the Montreal Canadiens, Josh Gorges admirably remained devoted to the team he had called home for seven-plus seasons. Gorges Gets Traded Gorges has since played four seasons with the division-rival Buffalo Sabres, announcing his retirement this past week. He’ll be remembered for his work ethic, which is generally the case for defensemen who don’t put up big numbers. His longevity, which allowed him to play 13 seasons, not so much, especially c...

Canucks Pettersson Hopeful & “Feeling Good”

Vancouver Canucks fans will have to wait at least another couple of days to see Elias Pettersson back on the ice.

It will be the fourth game in a row he’s missed since suffering a knee injury in Montreal on Jan. 3.
