5 Burning Questions Entering The Season

1. No surprise here, Carey Price’s health and injured right knee will be the topic of conversation though out the season.

The Ones That Got Away, Subban vs Chelios

Yes I know, why am I still writing about PK Subban when he is no longer a Montreal Canadien? Well fact is, this is the off season and until Shea Weber plays a game as a Montreal Canadien, there’s not much to write about. Living in the east coast, I’ve only watched a handful of…
