The Montreal Canadiens thought it was cute to tweet a picture of Andrei Markov, Thomas Plekanec, P.K. Subban and Max Pacioretty saying “here are your four captains for 2014-2015”. While the tweet from September 15 has since been deleted, the joke still isn’t all that funny. Though the idea of sharing leadership responsibilities amongst four of...
from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet,
Biggest storyline to watch: With Gionta and Gorges gone, this team has really been turned over to the next generation of Price, Subban and Pacioretty. Can they be the guys who lead Montreal back to elite status? It will be interesting to monitor how the top-nine forward group shakes out. Rene Bourque was a beast, at times, in the playoffs, but...

The Canadiens want to make it very clear that they didn’t make any cuts Wednesday, but it was equally clear that’s exactly what they did as the club divided the camp into two groups.
The main group of 27 (plus the injured Lars Eller) represents the players battling for the 23 roster spots on opening night in Toronto on Oct. 8. The other group, about 40 players when you factor...

Max Pacioretty has marked his role as the number one guy for the Candiens in the attacking zone. Yes, this is above the likes of PK Subban. Also, he remained in this role, even when the Canadiens pulled off a block buster to add Thomas Vanek to the mix at the trade deadline.
Last season, Pacioretty has 39 goals, which led the team’s...
