Montreal Canadiens Can’t Enter Next Season With Key Players Unsigned

The Montreal Canadiens have several key players unsigned. They can’t afford to go into next season without sorting out the situation.

The Canadiens’ salary-cap situation after the Jake Allen trade

Justin Blades/EOTP Goaltending chews us a sizable piece of the pie, but there’s still plenty left to share. Two things were made clear in the NHL’s return to play after nearly five months away: Carey Price can still be one of the best goaltenders in the league when he’s healthy and rested, and tandem goaltending offers a significant advantage. Especially with this summer’s compressed playoff schedule, many teams have felt the need to use multiple goaltenders, or have had that forced upon them by injuries. Of the eight teams that made the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs,...

Examining the fallout from the Jake Allen trade

Photo by Dave Sandford/NHLI via There’s much more to this trade than just getting Carey Price some rest. When the Montreal Canadiens acquired Jake Allen, the immediate thought it that this was just a simple way to patch up their hole at the backup goalie position. While that is very true, there’s plenty of other layers beyond that reasoning that make this trade a huge win for the Habs, assuming Allen is able to play up to snuff behind Carey Price. Across Jake Allen’s seven-year NHL career he’s been both a starter, a split starter and the back up for the St. Louis Blues, fully...

With their backs against the wall, the Montreal Canadiens rolled into Game 5 against the Philadelphia Flyers riding a goalless drought that spanned nearly 130 minutes. Despite Carey Price being nearly flawless, Montreal trailed 3-1 in the series, and their shocking playoff run seemed to be at its end. Kirk Muller had the line blender kicked into overdrive in Tuesday to try and find some sort of combination to spark the suddenly anemic offence.
