Calm before the storm in Habsland

It's been a quiet few weeks for Habs fans, but that is about to end, with the arbitration sessions for Lars Eller and PK Subban fast approaching. Rumours today had the Habs offering Eller $1.65 million per year, and Eller's camp countering around the $3.5 million mark.

Montreal robbed Colorado in swapping Daniel Briere for P.A. Parenteau and a 5th

Here’s the thing with Danny Briere: he’s not very good any more. I have a ton of respect for his talent, his career, and the man he is, but as far as being an effective NHLer goes at age 36 (37 by the time next season starts), the reality is that it just ain’t there anymore. Briere is a guy who needs to play in the top-six with good linemates to be effective, and he was rarely...
