Price Fails Habs Who Were Good Enough to Beat Leafs in O Time Loss on Opening Night #HOCKEYCRUNCH By Jamie Gilcig

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. Toronto outshot the Habs 34-32 on a strong second period. 🚨 JOSH ANDERSON – 2ND OF THE GAME4-3 MTL pic.twitter.com/qyxVLfBDbZ — Here's… Continue reading Price Fails Habs Who Were Good Enough to Beat Leafs in O Time Loss on Opening Night #HOCKEYCRUNCH By Jamie Gilcig

13 Hab Points as the 2018-19 Season Starts by Jamie Gilcig 100218

Cornwall Ontario – It’s going to be a sad season in Montreal.   Like many others I have no idea why such a legendary team has run itself into the ground. The team just named Shea Weber Captain.  Honestly they should be trying to salvage value and be looking to move him.   Or then perhaps they… Continue reading 13 Hab Points as the 2018-19 Season Starts by Jamie Gilcig 100218

Change in Ottawa Sens Ownership Only Chance to Save Team by Jamie Gilcig 080518

Cornwall Ontario – The litany of issues facing Sens owner Eugene Melnyk is bewildering.  While there’s always a back story to most issues, the face of the slide for the team started with the handling of fan fave Daniel Alfredsson. That it was played out as much in public as it did hurt the team. … Continue reading Change in Ottawa Sens Ownership Only Chance to Save Team by Jamie Gilcig 080518

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. It was owner Geoff Molson signing off on the strange Rejean Houle type management of his hand picked GM Marc Bergevin. … Continue reading Time to Stick a Fork in the 2017/18 Habs Courtesy of Geoff Molson 121917

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.

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

Michel Therrien’s Valentine’s Day Massacre – Claude Julien is Back as Habs Coach by Jamie Gilcig FEB 15, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  Getting fired as a coach in professional sports is part of the job.  This season five coaches have fallen; many with over five years of tenure. Michel Therrien’s days were numbered after rumbles of a quote condemning first year captain Max Pacioretty over the Summer. The moment in this video below spelled… Continue reading Michel Therrien’s Valentine’s Day Massacre – Claude Julien is Back as Habs Coach by Jamie Gilcig FEB 15, 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

Habs Deja Vu! Canadiens Riding High Early in Season by Jamie Gilcig OCT 30, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – After going through one of the worst seasons in franchise history, Montreal is once again riding high to kick off their season.

NHL 2016/17 Season Habs Predictions by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – Last season was a bleak year for Canadian hockey fans as nary a single franchise made it to the play offs from North of the border.

Bergevin’s Failure & More on SUBBAN, Therrien & Muller by Jamie Gilcig JULY 6, 2016

Alas Montreal fans have been rending their garments since the loss of the much beloved PK Subban.   For a 2nd round draft pick PK did well.  He won a Norris, excelled when it counted, the play offs, and entertained the fans. Sadly, Montreal being Montreal, language politics impact all facets of life and the… Continue reading Bergevin’s Failure & More on SUBBAN, Therrien & Muller by Jamie Gilcig JULY 6, 2016

Habs Braintrust Disconnect Exposed in Season Ending Bunk Fest by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 12, 2016

I have a distinct perception of how The Habs work in a sense.  In the 90’s I was their first videographer and created systems far ahead of what we today call analytics.  Some of the tools I created way back then still have not been matched.   We  tend to over analyze certain factors and… Continue reading Habs Braintrust Disconnect Exposed in Season Ending Bunk Fest by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 12, 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… Continue reading Bad Asset Management Leads to Habs Fall From Grace in 2015/16 by Jamie Gilcig FEB 17, 2016

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

While many Habs fans are in the doldrums over the team’s epic fall from grace including a record month of losses pressure is mounting on GM Marc Bergevin.

Who are the Habs Missing Most? Gallagher, Price, or Semin? by Jamie Gilcig DEC 22, 2015

As good as the Habs were in their first twenty games this season is as bad as they’ve been since.    Many of the top teams in the league have had injuries.  Yes, the one to Price is a biggie, but the loss of Brendan Gallagher and yes, Alex Semin on the right wing have… Continue reading Who are the Habs Missing Most? Gallagher, Price, or Semin? by Jamie Gilcig DEC 22, 2015

Habs First Quarter Report Card by Jamie Gilcig NOV 26, 2015

So we’re just over the quarter mark of the 2015/16 NHL and so far the biggest transaction by the Habs has been the long term resigning of GM Marc Bergevin. Frankly I can’t complain.   While I might not agree with some of his moves, you have to admit the results are impressive. It’s not… Continue reading Habs First Quarter Report Card by Jamie Gilcig NOV 26, 2015
