Canadiens Daily: Weber Shunning Fans? Devils Lose Hughes For Season



Montreal Canadiens

Is Montreal Canadiens captain Shea Weber shunning Habs fans?

Brendan Gallagher is tired of Tim Stützle’s Oscar-worthy embellishment.

Would Montreal Canadiens centre Nick Suzuki be a No. 1 center on a current Stanley Cup contender?

That and more in the latest MHN Canadiens Daily:

The Montreal Canadiens fell apart in the third period and lost 6-3 to the Ottawa Senators Tuesday.

After the game, Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher didn’t hold back on what he perceived to be embellishment again from Sens forward Tim Stützle.

Is Shea Weber, who is currently still the captain of the Montreal Canadiens, shunning the team and its fans?

Is Montreal Canadiens center Nick Suzuki a No. 1, or even a top 2 center on a current Stanley Cup contender? Former NHL head coach Guy Boucher doesn’t think so and at this very moment, I agree with him. However, in 2-3 years, I’d disagree.

All signs point to Martin St. Louis shedding the interim tag and becoming head coach of the Montreal Canadiens after this season but TSN Insider Darren Dreger cautioned Tuesday that it’s not officially a done deal yet.
