Checking Around the Habs Universe


It’s a quiet Monday on the hockey front, so I decided to see what my fellow Habs bloggers are up to today. has some interesting YouTube video compilation’s, made up by regular posters, of the new Canadiens Moen, Gionta, Cammalleri, Spacek and Gomez

Robert Lefebvre of has dug up some vintage magazine photos from the late ‘40s and early ‘50s.

Robert is also working on ranking the NHL’s 30 coaches, based on experience. Numbers 21-30 are already up.

The “Pocket Rocket” Henri Richard shares his music playlist on

A few days old, but a good read as J.T from “The H does not stand for Habs” dwells on the myths of the “veteran mentor” goaltender.

Eric Engels debates the expectations of the 2009-10 edition of the Montreal Canadiens.

Yawn….Eklund won’t let the Patrick Marleau to Montreal rumor die, citing that deal may be needed to trigger a Sens/Sharks deal for Dany Heatley.

Andy Bensch of BleacherReport questions Carey Price as a No. 1 goalie. Keep in mind he is a west coast hockey fan and admits he only sees a handful of Canadiens’ games. sees Max Pacioretty as the Canadiens' big impact player for 2009-10.

The Price/Hiller comparison in that article is absurd.

One is 27 turning 28 during next season, the other is just turning 22.

I don't mind articles questioning Carey Price, but please use a proper comparable.

Chris: I responded to Mr. Bensch by indicating taht very point. I also included an atricel I wrote on B/R at the end of Proce's season on how many goalies blossom well into their 20's.
