Good article, I liked the analysis of Ryder's goal, hadn't noticed all that.

I used to know Stu Hackel. Nice guy and a Habs fan. My son and I once attended a Habs-Devils game with him at the old Meadowlands arena (Habs lost). We chatted with Jean Perron (who didn't impress us).

I'm loving the newborn colt analogy.

Loved it. Considering our young NHL talent (Price, Subban, Galchenyuk, Pacioretty, and Gallagher) and our prospects (Tinordi, Beaulieu, Kristo, and Collberg), I can see this team becoming a powerhouse in a couple of years. Even if only one or two of our top prospects become regular NHL players, enough talent can be found through FA signings and trades to make up for that. Not to mention all of the picks Timmins has at his disposal in what is apparently a really deep draft. Things look good; optimism is warranted.

Interesting read, lots of truth in it. I find this funny and sad at the same time because it is so true.

Price, sure to get some Vezina consideration, is another hero -- except for that small handful of malcontents who still contend that he should have been traded rather than Jaroslav Halak after Halak's playoff heroics in 2010. (Some minds never change.)

It's funny how you can usually tell a good writer from a bad writer within the first sentence. Stu Hackel is definitely one of the good ones. Thanks for linking this OP.

A few errors here and there, but a good piece.

Speed is also a major factor in drawing penalties -- Montreal has had a league-best 156 opportunities, in large part because slower opponents must foul them when they can't stay with the pace.

This should be explained to Claude Julien

How tall are Gallagher and Galchenyuk? BGally look just 1-2 inch shorter

Galchenyuk is listed as 6'2 and Gally 5'8

"Officially", Galchenyuk is 4 inches taller. Big center and smurf winger. ;)

Great article! It's fantastic to see so many Canadiens as possible nominees or winners of awards, hopefully we can win 1 or 2!
