HOCKEYCRUNCH – Can the Habs Make the Playoffs? By Jamie Gilcig

September 26, 2021 – It was an amazing finish to a frankly disappointing season last year. Injury to your franchise player, mental health issues for your most expensive forward, dealing with a pandemic, and literally backing into the playoffs in a weakened single season division. Them’s not betting odd conditions. Add in your opposition losing […]

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.

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 […]

HOCKEY CRUNCH Habs End Cinderella Cup Run.  Time to say Goodbye to Bergy, Ducharme, Price & Weber.  By Jamie Gilcig

July 8, 2021 – What a wild ride this season has been. There’s been some good, but more bad ultimately. The Free Agent pick ups worked out really well. Sadly, some of those character guys that GM Marc Bergevin built this time around kinda punked out. This edition of the Habs reminds me of the […]

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 […]

January 14, 2021 – What can a Habs fan say? Their high priced goalie failed badly and allowed the Leafs to stay in a game they weren’t really in or deserved to win.

Hockey Crunch – Stick a Fork in the Habs for 2020 – Time to Trade Price & Others.  By Jamie Gilcig JAN 28, 2020

Right now Hab fans have to be wondering about owner Geoff Molson? Either he’s calling the shots and Bergy is a puppet, or he’s simply letting a really really really bad GM ruin a legendary franchise. No playoffs and bad blood equal less cash. It makes no sense for this well heeled franchise to keep […]

Hockey Crunch by Jamie Gilcig Trade Deadline – Bergy & Habs #epicfail Dorion Winning – Toronto Stands Pat – Winnipeg Panics – Flames Choke – Canucks Confusion

It’s been a busy trade deadline in some ways. Ottawa was facing the biggest challenge. Out were Duchene, Stone, and Dzingel. Duchene was a disastrous mistake last year. Stone simply wasn’t going to resign with the Sens and Dzingel was a sell high situation. And the Sens needed to fill the cupboards and interesting enough […]

HOCKEY CRUNCH Best Result From this Season for Hab Long Term Health is to Trade Price & Weber by Jamie Gilcig 022019

I know crazy. While there’s some play off fever going on in la belle province the best situation that’s evolved this season is the recovery of high priced Goalie Carey Price. The man has value even with his contract, heck if LV can give a 30+ goalie in Marc Andre Fleury $7M per for 3 […]
