These Players Are Missed In Montreal

from Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette, The diagnosis is pretty simple. The Canadiens miss their heavyweights. Read ‘em and weep: Shea Weber , Corey Perry , Phillip Danault , Carey Price . Weber and Price are missing through no fault of the management. Price will be back. Weber probably won’t. But Danault and Perry could have been retained — and from what we have seen so far, both should have been signed. Without those four, the Canadiens have a team with talent but without di...

Jack Hughes An Olympian?

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, - You know, chances are that Auston Matthews will be Patrick Kane’s center for Team USA at the Olympics, and if not him, then likely Dylan Larkin, but do not go to sleep on the possibility of Jack Hughes emerging as a top-six force for the Yanks in Beijing. Of course, the overtime winner Friday night against the Blackhawks was a work of open-ice beauty in the three-on-three competition. And the spin move off which No. 86 scored his first of the ...

A Motivated Tomas Tatar

from Jackie Spiegel of the Sporting News, On Friday night at the Prudential Center, Tomas Tatar will play in his first regular-season game for his new club, the Devils. The last time he played in a meaningful game was 141 days ago, which means it's been almost four months since he laced up the skates and hit the ice in the Canadiens' fifth game of the 2021 Stanley Cup playoffs first-round series against the Maple Leafs. But didn't Montreal play into July? Yes, but Tatar sp...

Canada & New England Fall Cruises

The season for these fall cruises is generally late August through early October. And, a very typical itin...

Watch Jaco Pastorius: The Lost Tapes Documentary, the Fan-Made Film on the Most Innovative Bass Player of All Time

People do not understand how hard a jazz musician works for a living. I’m not putting nobody down, but I’m telling you nobody understands how hard jazz musicians work. Jazz is not big in the US, because the States are too worried about Pac-Man and The Police. — Jaco When Jaco Pastorius uttered the quote above in a typically entertaining and insightful interview with Guitar World from 1983, I’m sure he meant no disrespect to the members of The Police. It may be safe to say that Jaco signi...

Sunday Hockey Notes

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - This may be completely unrelated to Carey Price’s current personal situation, but more than one hockey person was convinced this summer that Price wanted to be chosen in the expansion draft by the Seattle Kraken but remained in Montreal instead. - After Aleksander Barkov’s first game in Toronto years ago, I rode down the elevator with then-Florida GM Dale Tallon. I told Tallon that Barkov reminded me of a little of Jonathan Toews, whom Tallon had dr...

Questions Before The Season Starts

from Emily Sadler of Sportsnet, With a brand new NHL season comes a clean sheet of ice and a fresh batch of storylines ready to unfold. And questions. Many questions. Every year, a lot of the same ones appear -- questions like, Whose rebuild will take the biggest leap forward? and How many trades might we see? and Who's left standing at the end of it all? and, of course, We're all about to underestimate the New York Islanders again, aren't we? (Just me? Oh. Sorry.) Tha...

Stream The Body & BIG|BRAVE’s Powerful New Collaborative Album Leaving None But Small Birds

The Body are a Portland duo who make heavy, scuzzy, experimental metal-adjacent music. BIG|BRAVE are a Montreal trio who make punishingly hooky noise-rock. Today, those two bands have come together to release a collaborative album. Both bands have had strange, adventurous careers, but given the music that they’ve made in the past, you could be forgiven for expecting them to make something heavy and fuzzed out on their new team-up. That’s not what they’ve done.

Bob McKenzie’s Early Draft Rankings

from Bob McKenzie of TSN, Let’s make one thing clear from the get-go: The 2022 NHL Draft is the Shane Wright Draft. The Kingston Frontenacs’ centre is the unanimous No. 1 on TSN’s Pre-Season 2022 NHL Draft Rankings. Ten out of 10 scouts surveyed by TSN identified the 6-foot, 185-pound Burlington, Ont., native as the clear-cut choice. And, until further notice, they say it’s not even close. “No. 1 this year is his to lose,” said an NHL team head scout. “It would take him having...

Who Starts In Goal For The Toronto Maple Leafs?

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun, It’s a mystery to many how the Maple Leafs will create a battle for the crease in this training time when the principal combatants are such happy campers. Jack Campbell and Petr Mrazek are unfailingly polite in social settings, in their media encounters and to each other. But now it’s time to cue the Odd Couple theme, as they can’t share the same net on game night. “Between Petr and Jack, we have two guys who are confident, comfortable and eas...

Riddick 4 Is 'Closer Than You Think,' According To Vin Diesel

The Riddick franchise is a lot like its main character: rough around the edges, complex, hard to pin down and, most importantly, a survivor.

Questions Will Be Answered

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, Who is going to be traded between now and the start of the season? Whether it is Eichel or St. Louis’ Vladimir Tarasenko, there appears to be a lot of big-name players sitting on the trading block. Cap space could be a motivating factor in any deal. Heading into training camp, 10 teams were above the $81.5-million limit, meaning something will have to give between now and the start of the season. Of the teams having to make a move, look for B...
