HOCKEY CRUNCH – Leafs Choke Again in Game 7 – Tampa Moves to Second Round. By Jamie Gilcig

HOCKEY CRUNCH – Marner Notches 2 Goals as Leafs Jump Bruins in Game 1 041219

My boy Mitch Marner showed no signs of pressure in the Leafs 4-1 win in Boston. He scored 2 goals( one by penalty shot while the Leafs were short handed) and even laid on some meat. The Leafs were flying and using their depth speed to put pressure on the Bruins. Freddie Anderson kept their… Continue reading HOCKEY CRUNCH – Marner Notches 2 Goals as Leafs Jump Bruins in Game 1 041219

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.

And the Sens needed to fill the cupboards and interesting enough… Continue reading Hockey Crunch by Jamie Gilcig Trade Deadline – Bergy & Habs #epicfail Dorion Winning – Toronto Stands Pat – Winnipeg Panics – Flames Choke – Canucks Confusion

HOCKEY CRUNCH – Yes, Kyle Dubas & Leafs in Cap Trouble. By Jamie Gilcig 020819

It’s fascinating watching the NHL catch up in the cap age. Contract wise agents and GM’s are focusing on new tangents which make sense for both parties.

Fearless NHL Stanley Cup Predictions for Round 1 by Jamie Gilcig 041218

Cornwall Ontario –   Yes, it’s that time!   Sadly the Habs didn’t make the playoffs because GM Marc Bergevin totally blew it this season and it seems that owner Geoff Molson might actually let him have a seventh kick at the can which is way too Rejean Houle scary.

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

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.
