Week at a Glance – Early Season Report

Week at a Glance – Early Season Report

Not many people would have picked the Montreal Canadiens to be sitting on top of the Eastern Conference standings just 11 games into the season but that’s exactly what the Habs have been able to accomplish so far. Continue reading

Panthers vs Canadiens: Power Play Remains MIA

Panthers vs Canadiens: Power Play Remains MIA

Following the game a well-meaning fan said, “It’s only one loss, we were due.” At least it was better than a know-it-all analyst who described this as an “ambush game that the Canadiens were expected to lose.” Continue reading

Tomas Plekanec: Worth Every Penny of his Contract

Tomas Plekanec: Worth Every Penny of his Contract

Well, 10 games into the Montreal Canadiens season, it is obvious that my assessment when Thomas Plekanec signed his 6 year contract this past summer was dead wrong. Not only has the “little girl” of the 2008 – 2009 season with her 39 points been completely obliterated, the player who has emerged is arguably one of the best centers in the NHL. Continue reading

Canadiens vs Islanders: Finding Ways to Win

Canadiens vs Islanders: Finding Ways to Win

It’s never easy to sweep a home-and-home series in the NHL especially when the back half is in the opponent’s arena. Fortunately this game was taking place in the Habs-friendly Nassau Coliseum. Despite the Canadiens being on the road, they were welcomed by a substantial number of red-clad Habs fans who seemed to have locked up prime seating in the lower bowl. Continue reading

NHL Twitter Rankings

Twitter has become an essential tool of communication in the NHL between media, new and traditional, fans, sponsors, teams and the league. Within the media segment, Twitter communication are distinguished by a two-way engagement with the audience which is in stark contrast to traditional forms of print or broadcast journalism. Continue reading

Islanders vs Canadiens: Team in Red is on a Roll

Islanders vs Canadiens: Team in Red is on a Roll

Much has been said and written about the so-called ill-advised move by the Montreal Canadiens to turn over the Three Star selection to the fans. The Montreal media had traditionally “owned” exclusive domain. There’s no doubt that the system is likely to give us some odd results, but so far, so good. Continue reading

“Habby” Halloween

“Habby” Halloween

Last year, the Canadiens played on Halloween night, making it somewhat of a necessity to either wear a jersey to watch the game, or a costume, or somehow combine the two. This year, there are no NHL games on Halloween, but just about every team plays on the 29th and the 30th, which are prime Halloween party nights. Continue reading
