In Case you Missed It: Habs News and Blogger Views for Dec 9

image Reflection by Andrea Lavoie

I came across a couple good articles online tonight while nursing a scratchy throat and after an afternoon of shoveling.

First up, Dave Stubbs (Montreal Gazette) on my all-time favourite Hab Ken Dryden’s reaction to the Canadiens Centennial Ceremony.

I agree with Mr. Stubbs that not seeing Dryden, in his trademark pose, last Friday was a bit of a disappointment. But the fact that #29 appeared in pads for the first time in 30 years was reward enough.

OK a little shameless self promotion: Jessica Murphy’s look at Canadiens fans making the pilgrimage to Montreal. Just to note, I am not from North Bay, just drove through it once.

More on the slumping former Canadiens right winger, who now plays elsewhere.

The Hockey News’ Ryan Kennedy looks at backup goalies thrust into the lead role this season, including Jaroslav Halak.

And speaking of the Habs #41: Oh Canadiens looks at a possible trade  rumours, with the Oilers, involving the Slovak netminder

One Down, One Up: The Habs sent Ryan White back to the Bulldogs on Wednesday, was he really here? ;)

With injuries to defencemen Paul Mara and Jaroslav Spacek, the Canadiens called up Yannick Weber Wednesday afternoon.

On the Air Waves:

Bob McCowan and John Shannon (PrimeTime Sports/Fan590) talked to Brendan Shanahan, the NHL’s new VP for Hockey and Business Development.

Earlier in the day, Daren Millard and Nick Kypreos (Hockey Central/Fan590) caught up with HOFer Mark Messier on his new roll as Team Canada’s GM for the 2010 World Hockey Championships.

Who Wants to Tell Him the Answer Was No?: Dennis Kane, a guy can dream I guess.
