Everything Else About The Habs

While we're all ticked off about our losing streak, consider this from "Go Habs Go".

"While many fans and reporters are quick to point to the fact the team has no puck moving defenseman, the team has also faced three of the worlds best goalies in Brayden Holtby, Henrik Lundqvist and Corey Crawford, three goalies who have some of their best career numbers against the Habs.

Josh Wegman of The Score points out, the team has put up quality shots, leading the league in both shot attempts and shots on net during five on five action, while only the Panthers and Oilers have taken more shots on goal per 60 minutes five on five.

The team also has put up good Corsi numbers, and even though Corsi can sometimes be misleading, in the case of the Montreal Canadiens, it's not. The team is getting many, many shots around the net ranking top 10 in both Scoring Chances per 60 minutes and High-Danger Scoring Chances per 60 minutes.

To make matters worse, Jonathan Drouin, Max Pacioretty and Shea Weber have combined for 45 shots, with only one resulting in a goal."

 

Bold is mine.

91.9 Sports FM ran a poll on their Twitter account Wednesday asking Canadiens fans if they have a lower interest level in the team this season and 88% of those who answered said yes.

You can make that 88.1%. I am not enthused at all.

We talked for years about trading Roy (and paid for it dearly). The Subban trade is similar. He's an impossible player to replace. The difference is that Roy forced the trade and Subban wanted to stay, albeit both were caused by stubborn egotistical coaches.

Marc Dumont piece in the Gazette. The key number - Beaulieu, Markov, or Subban assisted on 59% of Pacioretty's goals over the past 3 seasons. Keep in mind Subban was only here for two of those seasons, and injured for ~15 games during one of them! Bergevin is unbelievably lucky that Mete has been so good (and that he fired Therrien who wouldn't have given Mete a sniff of ice time).

Before Ellis got injured Subban was talked about involved with Nashville and the Av's for Duchene. It was only after Ellis injury that they took it off the table that and the Av's wanted Subban plus, but Nashville didn't say absolutely no.

GMs always listen to offers, no matter who you after, duchene will never be moved because sakic's asking price is absolutely unbelievable, so every team has something with colorado that went nowhere because hes been on the block for months

A number of media members today saying they requested a press meeting from Marc Bergevin and that the club told them no. They also point out it's not unusual for the Gm to refuse meetings with the press and that he typically only meets with media 4 times a year anyways. Which begs the question, if the GM's job is pretty much to talk to other GM's and players and the league and if his job is not to talk to the media on a regular basis, then why exactly does the GM need to speak French?

The media probably put the request in English.

We have the highest SOG PG of any team,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,38.4. With an average of 38 SOG,,, we "should" score on 3-5.  I refuse to believe that most of them were not quality shots. Even if we had 6-8 very good SOG, then we should have scored on 1/2 of them. John Stevens said that that was the best game that Quick has played. In other words,,, he stole it for them.

MONTREAL – The Canadiens announced on Tuesday that they have agreed to terms on a one-year, one-way AHL contract with free agent defenseman Stefan Leblanc.

Leblanc, 21, recently completed his fourth year in the Ontario Hockey League with the Mississauga Steelheads, compiling seven goals, 30 assists, 101 minutes in penalties and a plus-24 differential. He helped the Steelheads to a 2017 OHL final appearance, where they lost to the Erie Otters.

Leblanc competed in 20 postseason games, scoring two goals and adding nine assists with a plus-11 differential.

The native of Oakville, ON played in 258 career OHL games with the Steelheads and Sudbury Wolves, recording 27 goals and 93 assists over that span.

Didn't the Habs sign him in June of this year?
