Kovalev To Be Montreal Canadiens New Captain?

According to “Le Journal de Montreal” there is a rumor that forward Alexei Kovalev may become the new leader of the Montreal Canadiens. We all know that Montreal is an incredibly fierce hockey market and that the media drops a word in on just about any and every subject that could possibly revolve around the team, so it’s no surprise this rumor got some attention.

But for the sake of argument I think it’s worth looking at what could become if this hypothetical situation were to turn out to be a reality, what positive or negative aspects could this bring to the Habs?

Marty Finally Has His Record!

At approximately 9:40 Eastern Time the New Jersey Devils defeated the Montreal Canadiens 3-1. The game was important for the Montreal Canadiens but even more so for Martin Brodeur.
In his 986th game, Martin Brodeur got his record tying win, number 551 of his career. Patrick Roy is the other current co-owner of the record and was in attendance at the Montreal home game, maybe because there are rumors of him being the Habs new coach, or maybe because he needed to see the man who will likely break …

Holy Olli! The Flames Are A Contender

The Flames are a good team. They have been a good team for a while too. They work hard and they always seem to be in the mix come season’s end, and we all think we might see the same sleeper team we saw go to the cup finals in 2003-2004.
The problem they have had in the last two years, the one that keeps coming back to haunt them is that they just can’t find a way to beat the elite teams. Sometimes we accuse …

Montreal fires Carbonneau

The sliding centennial team has fired head coach Guy Carbonneau on monday, after losing 10 of their 13 last games in january and february, and being 4-5-1 in their last ten.
A bit surprising since the team looked liked the Canadiens might have turned a corner beating Dallas 3-1 on sunday. Price had finally put up a good effort after looking shaky the past 2 weeks, but it wasn’t enough to save the coach… Now Bob Gainey is supposed to take over the team for the remainder of the …
