I usually spend some time every day reading through the Habs blogs that I follow and thought I’d list a few articles that caught my eye today.
I’ll give a couple of comments.
Ya! The Habs Rule!
“Keane on hockey: Former Canadiens captain is still playing in the pros at 42″
Kevin writes a great article on a true iron man in Hockey… Mike Keane.
There’s some great stats and facts about Keane as well as some bits from interviews. Really worth a read.
“Captain? Who needs a captain?“
The title alone got me wondering again… who’ll be the next captain for the Montreal Canadiens. There’s a quote by Henri Richard (the Pocket Rocket) on the captaincy and a pic from Henri’s rookie-season contract…. really amazing to see!
So big Georges Laraque seems to be in trouble (at least in some media) because he made a joke…. a joke about the new guys really shouldn’t learn french and they’ll be ok… (how long before some of the new guys are media targets??)
Alexander Avstin: “Ovechkin #2″
Jason highlights one of Montreal’s 3rd round picks at this years draft…. Alexander Avtsin. Comparison to Alex Ovechkin??? Want to read more? Check out this article.
Dennis brings us back to 1986… it was a time when Jean Perron (110% panelist) was the head coach. When a new star was being born in Patrick Roy and some long time players were in their twilight (Bob Gainey). Great article on the type of team they were and what it took to win.
