Nevertheless, while head coach Claude Julien has some work to do on that front (assuming general manager Marc Bergevin doesn’t on his end), there are some diamonds in the rough that could

You can’t say Nikita Scherbak isn’t aspiring for a greater role within the ranks of the Montreal Canadiens, or depending on how you see it, overachieving.

Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin may very well not be finished this summer. One should hope he’s not anyway. With two massive projected holes in the line-up, down the middle and on the top defensive pairing, the Canadiens need to vastly improve on paper before they can realistically be considered contenders. Thankfully, or perhaps

It’s been a long offseason for veteran defenseman Andrei Markov.

Don’t let the “Mark” in Andrei Markov’s last name fool you. He and Mark Streit are two different players. In spite of their similarities, being that they are both left-handed, both have worn Montreal Canadiens jerseys in the past and both, uh, play hockey, Streit is not a suitable replacement for Markov. Not by a
