I like Dvorak, but KK Fiasco Move Habs Backwards. By Jamie Gilcig

September 7, 2021 – Cap & asset management are critical in today’s NHL. This week we have seen Habs GM Marc Bergevin lose a 3rd overall pick for a 1st and 3rd round pick.

HOCKEY CRUNCH – KK Out, Dvorak In. Habs Lose. By Jamie Gilcig

September 5, 2021 – The saga of Jesper Kokowhatchamacalhim is over for Habs fans. Another failed franchise pick. When you draft in the top 5 that’s the deal in the cap age. Those players have to have important long term impacts. While yours truly refers to KK as Lars Eller lite, that’s still not the… Continue reading HOCKEY CRUNCH – KK Out, Dvorak In. Habs Lose.

HOCKEYCRUNCH – Why This Will be Marc Bergevin’s Last Year as Hab GM. By Jamie Gilcig

AUGUST 26, 2021 – Weird things happen in Hockey. The sad prevailing philosophy of the great franchise known as the Montreal Canadians is to “make the playoffs”. Anything can happen.

HOCKEY CRUNCH – Habs Improved After Draft & Free Agent Frenzy. Eichel not best Choice for Centre Addition. By Jamie Gilcig

July 31, 2021 – With Covid-19 impacting the globe it’s no surprise that it would impact the hockey world. Choosing all the way down at 31st the Habs either could trade up; dump the pick, or go all in and draft Logan Mailloux who normally would not be available at 31. After enduring a social… Continue reading HOCKEY CRUNCH – Habs Improved After Draft & Free Agent Frenzy. Eichel not best Choice for Centre Addition. By Jamie Gilcig

Price’s Poor Play Leads to Julien Firing in Montreal. Muller Gone too. HOCKEY CRUNCH by Jamie Gilcig

FEBRUARY 24, 2021 – When you’ve watched and worked in hockey as long as yours truly has you develop instincts. My instinct since very early of Carey Price’s career is that he would never win in Montreal. Carey is a great goalie, but to win in Montreal you need to either not appear to care… Continue reading Price’s Poor Play Leads to Julien Firing in Montreal. Muller Gone too.

HOCKEY CRUNCH – Habs Messy Season End With Bubble by Jamie Gilcig 040719

In this cap age of hockey a team must be aware of its asset management or it ends up like Detroit or Chicago, or sadly, Los Angeles. Going nowhere for the hope of a shot.

Domi Swap Shows Habs GM Marc Bergevin Doesn’t Understand the Concept of Trading by Jamie Gilcig 081918

Cornwall Ontario – When I worked for the Habs in the 90’s during that one interesting season when we moved into the Bell Centre and nearly upset the Rangers in the playoffs, trades were run by me.   At the risk of being humble my reports and advice to Reggie were dead on accurate.   It was… Continue reading Domi Swap Shows Habs GM Marc Bergevin Doesn’t Understand the Concept of Trading by Jamie Gilcig 081918

Time to Stick a Fork in the 2017/18 Habs Courtesy of Geoff Molson 121917

Cornwall Ontario – The Christmas break sadly is the funeral song for les boys this season.    The injury to Shea Weber didn’t do it.  The drama that is Carey Price actually wasn’t either.

Cornwall Ontario – And now for something completely different. I know.  Anything can happen in sports.   But in 2017, in a cap age with parity, the odds of the Montreal Canadiens winning Lord Stanley’s Cup are about where that Norwegian Blue is.

HABS Bergy Pulls a Turnip on NHL Free Agent Day 2017 – by Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall Ontario – Well Habs GM Marc Bergevin signed his centre.  Peter Holland.  I know.  A Coyote cast off. Now this is Sunday July 2 at 10:30 AM and it’s still early days, but Mr. Bergevin’s signing of Karl Alzner also was not a sign to get excited about. Alzner’s a decent enough 4th or… Continue reading HABS Bergy Pulls a Turnip on NHL Free Agent Day 2017 – by Jamie Gilcig

Dear Alex Radulov – Please Don’t Be A Dink. Show the Love Back. By Jamie Gilcig JUNE 23, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – You know I lurve you Big Guy.  I wrote that the Habs should sign you because it was a perfect marriage.

Why Geoff Molson Has to Fire Habs GM Marc Bergevin by Jamie Gilcig MAY 27,2017

Cornwall Ontario – All GM’s have their ups and down as Hab fans prepare to watch PK Subban enter the realm that is the Stanley Cup final for a team that’s reached it for the very first time ever; coincidently, the first year after trading swapping out their heart, soul, and captain, who never led… Continue reading Why Geoff Molson Has to Fire Habs GM Marc Bergevin by Jamie Gilcig MAY 27,2017

Rd 2 Picks – Breaking Down the Habs Roster & Why Bergy Isn’t the Guy by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 25, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – I only made playoff pics for the Canadian teams in round one.  I went four for five including the Rangers to defeat Montreal in six games.  (I wish I was wrong on that one, but the curse of Rejean Houle may be too powerful to ever defeat) I’m not sure I’m a… Continue reading Rd 2 Picks – Breaking Down the Habs Roster & Why Bergy Isn’t the Guy by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 25, 2017

Panic in Hab Land as Bruins Shut out Mtl 4-0 by Jamie Gilcig FEB 13, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  Is Marc Bergevin having fun yet?    After last season which many feel was a tanking more than a failure of the squad this season was supposed to be magical with Carey Price back.

Habs Sink to New Season Low After Losing Two to Columbus by Jamie Gilcig JAN 27, 2016

No, those are Molson’s.   After this season I may never drink a Molson again.   While many focus on the injury to Carey Price, a mysterious injury, that most likely will not see the goalie back in net this year and possibly be a career changer we do have some answers. Clearly this team… Continue reading Habs Sink to New Season Low After Losing Two to Columbus by Jamie Gilcig JAN 27, 2016
