Education: Bialik High School Class of 2013, Dawson College Class of 2015, McGill Political Science Student. Born and raised in Montreal, the Canadiens have always been a big part of my life. What started out as a way to blow off some steam after a tough loss in the 2011 playoffs eventually became a popular hit with Facebook friends around the internet. On PGT, I like to dissect each and every Habs game and promote discussion about the team. Other interests: Aside from Hockey and sports in general, I love music. During the summer I work for Camp Wingate, a sleep-away sports camp just north of Montreal.

Gill Traded To Predators

We have a trade to announce! The Montreal Canadiens have traded defenseman Hal Gill along with a conditional 5th round pick to the Nashvile Predators in exchange for Blake Geoffrion, Robert Slaney and a 2nd round pick. Gill will be missed in the locker room in Montreal but it was time for him to move on. He was such a great influence on PK Subban last year and should continue to help the young d-men in Nashville such as Jonathan Blum and Ryan Ellis. In return, the Habs get Robert Slaney and Blake Geoffrion. Slaney is currently playing in the ECHL and it his chances to play at the NHL level in his future are very slim. If you weren't aware, Geoffrion is the great grand son of former Hab great, Boom-boom Geoffrion. At 6'02 and roughly 200lbs, Geoffrion brings good size and skill to the team. The 2nd round pick is just the icing on the cake and a very good late addition to the trade.
Final word: Great move by Gauthier. Geoffrion is young, skilled and has a bright future. Gill was very good for the Habs however, with the team out of the playoff picture he is a great addition to the Predators down the stretch.

NHL100 Classic

In one of the multiple outdoor NHL games this season, the Canadiens will face the Ottawa Senators at TD Stadium in Ottawa on December 16th.

Here are more details, as well as the newly released jerseys:

For tickets:

Jordie Benn

How's this for a stat; in just 29 games, Jordie Benn has already set a career high in goals with 4. That is more than all star defensemen Erik Karlsson, Brent Burns, Victor Hedman and Dustin Byfuglien... COMBINED!!

Check this tweet out from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News:

Daniel Carr

What a story this kid is. Not the biggest, not the fastest, not the most skilled, but he just has a knack for scoring goals. Since the Canadiens called him up from the Laval Rocket four games ago, Carr has amassed 6 points and is leading a very productive fourth line in Montreal.

It seems as if he has cemented his spot on the roster. Well deserved.
