Canadiens Daily: Joshua Roy; ‘Kucherov Rule’ Null And Void?



Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens have signed prospect Joshua Roy.

Why do so many NHL GM’s complain about the Tampa Bay Lightning circumventing the salary cap but not put their words into action?

That and more in the latest MHN Canadiens Daily:

Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens allowed the Florida Panthers to score three consecutive goals twice and lost 7-4.

The Habs signed prospect Joshua Roy after he tore up the QMJHL this season.

Speaking of Joshua Roy, I highly suggest you check out the two-part Q and A my partner-in-scribe Marco D’Amico did with him.

Has Canadiens prospect Jesse Ylönen proven he’s ready for a legit shot in training camp next fall?

If Martin St. Louis wants to shed the interim tag and become the head coach of the Montreal Canadiens going past this season, the job is his says Habs general manager Kent Hughes.

Hughes is also hoping he finally gets his first Carey Price start of his young Montreal Canadiens GM tenure this season.

NHL games in Quebec again? It could happen next season but it won’t be because the Quebec Nordiques return.

On the final day of the NHL GM meetings, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman seemed to think that teams using LTIR as a cap loophole is a media myth. OK, Gary. …yeah. What was worse though was the GMs that continually bash the Tampa Bay Lightning for what they did with Nikita Kucherov last season, seem to be against any changes. If you’re not going to vote for change then don’t call for it!
