Leafs & Sens Win – Nashville 2-0 vs Chicago  GAME 2 Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 16, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – The Habs evened their series Friday night.   This year there seems to be more desperation across the board to win with multiple games of 100 total hits.  It’s good hockey; sometimes great.  Shea Weber, even though he took a lame fighting penalty, was the monster for Montreal.  Just the beating alone […]

Rough Start for Canadian Teams in NHL Play Offs by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 14, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  It was great to see five Canadian teams make the playoffs this season after Canada was blanked last year. Sadly all five lost their opening games; some tragically, some, well hockey is a game of funny bounces and for the Leafs Friday night the puck didn’t bounce their way. The upstart Leafs […]

Bad Asset Management Leads to Habs Fall From Grace in 2015/16 by Jamie Gilcig FEB 17, 2016

Bad Asset Management Leads to Habs Fall From Grace in 2015/16 by Jamie Gilcig FEB 17, 2016

Going into this season Habs GM Marc Bergevin made very few impact changes.   Washington for example, clearly saw a need for some secondary scoring support and nabbed TJ Oshie, and Justin Williams. Montreal saw some lottery tickets.    Alex Semin, Zach Kassian, and Tomas Fleischman.     While “Flash” had a good start, as […]

Lamoriello – Leafs Too Many Chiefs Not Enough Braves & Habs Like Semin by Jamie Gilcig JULY 27, 2015

It has to be a disappointing off season for Leaf fans.  Not quite as disappointing as for Hab fans, but pretty darn close. Neither team has really addressed their core needs even though both are near the Salary Cap. Dumping Phil Kessel was more of a statement than a trade and now Brendan Shanahan has […]

Habs Jump to 3-0 Record to Lead NHL – Leafs Fail – NHL Early Season tid bits by Jamie Gilcig

CFN – Whenever you start a season on the road and snatch 6 points on 3 come back wins you know something special is brewing.  Yes, it’s only three games and the season is long; but all the indicators are looking great.   Montreal’s best are leading the way and Tomas Plekanec, thanks tot he […]

Which Canadian NHL Teams Will Improve in 2014/15?  by Jamie Gilcig  Habs Leafs Sens

CFN-   The Habs ended the pre-season with a trade.   Gone are Carey Price’s best bud Peter Budaj and Patrick Holland for Erik Tangradi.  It’s an interesting move.  With Tangradi already clearing waivers it gives Montreal some back up beef and helps their cap space as Tokarski’s salary was nearly 2/3 less than Budaj.
