Preseason Winless Habs Highlight Defensive Woes. By Jamie Gilcig 092917

Cornwall Ontario – Short of pulling a rabbit out of his hat and using some of that $8M in cap space, Habs GM Marc Bergevin is in a tricky position that might see him lose his job.

Is the Carey Price Contract Tradeable? Bergy Deflates Hab Values. By Jamie Gilcig 080817

Cornwall Ontario – It’s been a disastrous two years for Habs GM Marc Bergevin.  When owner Geoff Molson fires him this season he won’t be able to say that he wasn’t given every opportunity to win in Montreal. Five seasons with no true improvement in the roster during the cap era is not good for… Continue reading Is the Carey Price Contract Tradeable? Bergy Deflates Hab Values. By Jamie Gilcig 080817

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

Apparently You Do Need 2 Strong Centre’s in the NHL in 2017. By Jamie Gilcig JUNE 7, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  As we wait to see who gets to hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup this season (Go PK!) there’s a bit of a lull in the hockey world.  The Las Vegas expansion only has so much heat story wise, free agency is looking to be a bore this year and it seems that it’s… Continue reading Apparently You Do Need 2 Strong Centre’s in the NHL in 2017.

It’s Time to Bring Larry Robinson Back to Mtl as D Coach. By Jamie Gilcig JUNE 5, 2017

  Cornwall Ontario – It’s time to bring Hall of Fame Hab Legend Larry Robinson home.   To his hockey home.

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

It’s Time to Dump Marc Bergevin by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 23, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – I know.  Montreal fans can be hyper emotional.    This isn’t about that.  It’s been a long two years for Hab fans.   It’s been a long time since their last cup win or even a real close sniff. Montreal isn’t the worst team in the league, but they are far from… Continue reading It’s Time to Dump Marc Bergevin by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 23, 2017

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

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… Continue reading Rough Start for Canadian Teams in NHL Play Offs by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 14, 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. Price is back, but his play is a boggling hot mess.  Flashes of good quality, but perhaps of… Continue reading Panic in Hab Land as Bruins Shut out Mtl 4-0 by Jamie Gilcig FEB 13, 2017

NYI Worst in 1st GILCIG NHL Team Rankings for Sunday December 18, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO –   Yours truly is not just a pretty face.  I’m also the answer to a Habs trivia question.  Name the only Habs employee to ever have something they created nominated for an Oscar.

Habs Buy Time for Bergevin – Run Up Score on Avs by Jamie Gilcig DEC 11, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – I don’t know, but I could’ve sworn running up the score in pro sports was considered pretty skanky, but this season we’ve seen at least two games involving the Habs have scores of 10 goals. Last night Montreal Captain Max Pacioretty padded his stats notched four goals as les boys not only… Continue reading Habs Buy Time for Bergevin – Run Up Score on Avs by Jamie Gilcig DEC 11, 2016

Habs Face Huge Season Defining Challenge by Jamie Gilcig DEC 7, 2016

Combined with Carey Price’s return, and Shea Weber proving he’s not… Continue reading Habs Face Huge Season Defining Challenge by Jamie Gilcig DEC 7, 2016
