A newcomer to the Habs organization, Daniel Audette is a promising offensive player hoped to be another Timmins late round steal. He begins his stay in the Top 25 as #20.

2013 Habs Top 25 Under 25: #12 Michael Bournival

Bournival was one of the main AHL rookie forwards in Hamilton in 2012-13 after a strong CHL career. He's fast, smart and hard working, but does that add up to an NHL career of any significance?

2013 Habs Top 25 Under 25: #20 Gabriel Dumont

Game 37: 2nd Period Thread

Andrew's absence has resulted in a deplorable power vacuum and threatens to plunge peaceful EOTP land into chaos. I'm unilaterally appointing myself responsible for 2nd and 3rd period threads in...

How do the Habs' forward lines work?

Studying the puck possession and usage of the Canadiens forward lines which lead to their Eastern Conference leading 2013 half season.

Third Period Thread

Absolutely terrific hockey game so far. Two eastern conference powerhouses have been essentially equal to each other through 40 minutes in balance of play and goals.

Know Your Opponent: Pittsburgh Penguins
