Habs Depth Chart v1 – Trade Bait for Deadline

As of today, the Habs sit idly first in the Atlantic Division with a 99.7% chance of making the playoffs. By looking at the current Depth Chart (January 17, 2017), there seems to be a dire need for another top 6 talent, either on the wing or down the middle, and a left defenseman to…

Mid-Season Report Cart – Part 2

Max Pacioretty – It was a rough start to the season for the Captain, struggling to find the back of the net throughout the month of October. Whether it was the micro fracture in his foot or the blame (unwarranted) many fans placed on him for Subban’s departure, Max only had 5 games through the…
