Habs News

  • The Montreal Canadiens have done a good job in clearing out significant salaries over the last few seasons, but their salary cap outlook is far from ideal. General Manager Kent Hughes has spoken at length about not wanting to strap his club with significant contracts moving forward, outside of signing his young core like Nick Suzuki (by his predecessor) or Cole Caufield.

  • Josh Anderson was given an audition on the top line, whereas Juraj Slafkovsky was once again used with Kirby Dach on the second trio. [Canadiens Preseason: Anderson Top Line, Slafkovsky Second Line
  • Dach’s impact on Slafkovsky should not be ignored. The 19-year-old forward may lack consistency, but you’d be hard-pressed to argue his usage last season was anything but inconsistent. If the Canadiens want Slafkovsky to take the next step, using him with Dach is a smart way of going about it. [Canadiens Using Dach On Slafkovsky Line For Important Reasons]
  • Both Lias Andersson and Philippe Maillet cleared waivers, which means they’re bound for the AHL. In other waivers news, 29 players were added to the waive wire yesterday. [Canadiens Players Clear, 29 Names Added to NHL Waiver List]
  • Veterans Josh Anderson, Sean Monahan, and Johnathan Kovacevic stood out in the team’s exciting comeback win over the Leafs. Technically, Kovacevic was a rookie last season, and the veteran tag is questionable, but he plays like a 10-year veteran, and that’s good enough for us.
