  3. time to change topic https://www.prohockeyrumors.com/2021/09/poll-are-the-montreal-canadiens-a-playoff-team-in-2021-22.html Poll: Are The Montreal Canadiens A Playoff Team In 2021-22? After making it all the way to the 2021 Stanley Cup Final, losing in five games to the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Montreal Canadiens have had one of the most interesting offseasons of any team. That much roster turnover is unusual for a team that made it that far in the playoffs, but a decent portion of it has been out of their control. A good portion of Montreal’s starting 12 forwards will look different next season. Gone down the middle are Phillip Danault, Jesperi Kotkaniemi, and Eric Staal. Dvorak will attempt to replace Danault’s shutdown role with a little more offensive touch but less defensive prowess. Kotkaniemi’s third-line role is likely to be replaced by another young center, most probably Jake Evans. Staal’s fourth-line role will likely be comprised of a more defensive-minded pivot in Cedric Paquette. Their group of wingers will look different too, losing out on Tomas Tatar’s two-way play in favor of a power-play specialist in Mike Hoffman. Gone is veteran Corey Perry in the bottom six, being replaced by another veteran presence in Mathieu Perreault. The team’s defense faces the loss of the team’s captain in Shea Weber. His injury will keep him out for at least this entire season and puts the rest of his career in jeopardy. His absence will be replaced by committee, as youngster Alexander Romanov and new addition David Savard should see more minutes. The left side stays relatively constant from last season, and overseas addition Chris Wideman could challenge for some games as well. A tandem of Carey Price and Jake Allen returns after a successful regular season campaign. However, a team that barely squeaked into the playoffs last season returns with some question marks. Full seasons of Jonathan Drouin and Cole Caufield help boost the team, but downgrades from Danault to Dvorak and Tatar to Hoffman raise near-negating doubts. The success of youngsters like Evans and Romanov will be crucial if Montreal wants to make a return to the playoffs in 2022, and they’ll need repeat performances from players such as Jeff Petry and Josh Anderson. So the question to you, PHR readers, is this: has Montreal done enough this offseason to yield a playoff team in an increasingly competitive Eastern Conference? Make your voice heard below: Do The Montreal Canadiens Make The Playoffs In 2022? I say " No "
  4. Leave it to the Montreal Canadiens to be different
  5. Zac Ronaldo is not vaccinated . A requirement of being a blue jacket is that he be vaccinated .
  6. Red Wings Sign Bobby Ryan to PTO The Red Wings will give Bobby Ryan another look this season as the veteran forward has signed PTO. Part of the reason the Red Wings might not have signed him this offseason was that Ryan was limited to 33 games because of an injury. He played well in those 33 games (7 goals and 14 points), but there could be some concern about his reliability moving forward.
  7. Rinaldo Not Welcome to Blue Jackets’ Camp Aaron Portzline of The Athletic is noting that a source close to Zac Rinaldo tells The Athletic that the Columbus Blue Jackets made it clear to Rinaldo he wasn’t welcome at training camp. Everyone is awaiting an explanation from the club. It’s not clear if this is at all related to Ronaldo’s appearance in Canada at a PPC rally where he was making comments about vaccinations. He said: “I’m not anti-vax, I’m not anti-mask. I’m pro-choice.” Portzline adds “Explanation forthcoming from club in a few minutes when GM Jarmo Kekalainen and hockey operations staff address media.”
  8. Alex Galchenyuk has signed a PTO with the Coyotes.
  9. https://www.nhl.com/player/sami-niku-8478915 Why ?
  10. The Canadiens announced that they have offered a professional tryout to veteran defenseman Cody Goloubef who will join the team in the coming days.

  12. https://www.markerzone.com/news/index.php?no=56314&s=8 Amid rumours that the whole thing had been scrapped, both RDS and TVA in Quebec will be airing one-on-one interviews with Jonathan Drouin of the Montreal Canadiens Monday night. Drouin left the team mid-way through last season and did not return due to "personal reasons." There was a ton a of speculation as to why he made the decision, but Drouin had never spoken out on the reasons himself. In a teaser clip for the interview, which is in French, Drouin added some insight.He told Chantal Machabee of RDS that there were times he would go three consecutive nights without sleeping and then, in some cases, have to play back-to-back games. In the clip, he insisted that he never lost his passion for hockey and spent time watching games, sometimes six a night, before taking time off. Ultimately, he said he took time off to put his life in order and find a healthier pace, adding what he was doing just wasn't viable any longer.In a brief clip released by TVA Sports, Drouin told Renaud Lavoie he has suffered from both anxiety and insomnia.Drouin is attending training camp with the Montreal Canadiens and is expected to start the season with the team. We should know more about his reasons for his time away when the interviews air Monday night. The sit-down with RDS will be broadcast at 7:30 Quebec time, while TVA will air its interview at 8 PM.
  13. For some, Kotkaniemi has gone from being an up-and-coming, clutch top-six center to a player that will never amount to much of anything. For others, ex-Canadiens employees even, like former goaltending coach Stephane Waite, Kotkaniemi needs to mature… which, with Kotkaniemi being 21 and all, is kind of like saying Carey Price needs to stop the puck (or at least needed to a better job of it prior to Waite’s dismissal). Meanwhile, even though general manager Marc Bergevin obviously kept things professional when he announced the decision not to match the offer sheet, he certainly didn’t dispel that same notion with his comments. Bergevin: “When the games start, [coaches are] there to win a hockey game. When certain players don’t buy in or do what they’re asked, at some point a coach has to make a decision that’s best for the hockey team
  14. James Neal and Michael Frolik sign tryout contracts with St Louis
