Fancy Stat Scouting - The Florida Panthers

The Habs trounced the Panthers last they met, 4-1. How do they matchup overall?

Fancystat scouting - The Toronto Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs are a sad franchise, current holders of the longest streak of not making the playoffs. What underlies this streak of futility?

Fancystat Scouting - The Buffalo Sabres

When we saw the Buffalo Sabres a week ago I called them a weak team with horrible center depth that was getting killed when their best forwards weren't on the ice.

Fancystat scouting - The Boston Bruins

As usual when we face a new team, Stephan breaks down the opponent.

Fancy Stat Scouting: The Buffalo Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres are last in the Northeast Division, but do they belong there? Find out inside.

Fancy Skat Scouting: Ottawa Senators

Ottawa is off to a fine start to their 2013 campaign and are the first un-ambigiously good 5 on 5 team the Habs have faced this season. However, they are missing their top forward which may swing...

Know your opponent: The Ottawa Senators

Ottawa is off to a fine start to their 2013 campaign and are the first un-ambigiously good 5 on 5 team the Habs have faced this season. However, they are missing their top forward which may swing the advantage to Montreal.

Fancy Stat Scouting: Winnipeg Jets

Taking a look at tonight's opposing team, the Winnipeg Jets we see a deep squad lacking in star power, one that was decent last season but undone by poor goaltending.

Pacioretty out 3 to 4 weeks

21

Max Pacioretty has his appendix removed. Habs are out one star LW.

Andrei Markov vs his peers

Bruce Peter did an excellent job detailing Subban's terrific turn as a top notch defenseman in all situations last year. Here I use the same method to see how a former consensus number one defender in Andrei Markov does by the same measurements.

5 Lineup Questions for Tonight's Game

With a short training camp and the team's top skater in a contract dispute there are plenty of unanswered questions out there for the Habs' lineup.

Scott Cullen's TSN fantasy rankings for Habs

TSN's Scott Cullen put out a projection of the offensive output of the top 300 players in the NHL for the upcoming season. How does he think the Habs will do?

Top 25 Under 25: #4 Lars Eller

Eller keeps his #4 position locked down and looks to build on his breakout goalscoring from last year.

Top 25 Under 25: #5 Nathan Beaulieu

Nathan Beaulieu retains his #5 spot from last year as he starts an early transition to pro hockey, He could be the offensive key for the Bulldogs this season from the back end.

EOTP Round Table: The Defense Corps

The first edition of a new weekly feature on EOTP wherein the editors discuss a single topic in private and publish the resulting conversation.

Top 25 Under 25: #11 Morgan Ellis

Morgan Ellis is the most improved played in the Habs system, can he push even harder in Hamilton and break the Habs roster soon?

Top 25 Under 25: #13 Yannick Weber

Yannick Weber has been around for awhile, but fans forget that he's still pretty young. Not every young defenseman can be dominant like Subban, but can Weber break out?

Top 25 Under 25: #18 Tim Bozon

Tim Bozon, a native of France, put up a point per game in his rookie WHL season while adjusting to the North American game. Where can he go from there?

Top 25 under 25: The 26+

The Canadiens have a deep prospect system, made deeper by an incredible draft in 2012. There were several names who didn't make the top 25 that could be household names in the future.

Corey Pronman's Top 10 Habs Prospects

22

This off-season's rankings from the often-discussed, occasionally disagreed with and always accessible Corey Pronman of Puck Prospectus and ESPN are in. Corey is great at responding to tweets on his @coreypronman handle so feel free to ask him an exhausting list of questions. Just don't ask him to compare prospects to established players. He hates that. I believe Corey also has a past history as a Habs fan but appears to hold himself neutral in his professional activities. Bonus coverage of Aaron Palushaj here

AHL to NHL Translations: Save Percentage

23

In the NHL stats community, plenty has been done to look at how well skaters scoring rates translate from one league to another, especially the most common NHL transition from its AHL farm teams....

Clement Jodoin Hired as Assistant Coach. One More Assistant to Go.

23

Clement Jodoin has been hired to be one of the Montreal Canadiens assistant coaches for the up-coming season. It has also been reported that another assistant coach will be found for the role of defenseman coach.

If someone throw a banana at me I'd probably just eat it. Subban on Stroumboulopoulus

+

As he demonstrates in his interview on national television, PK Subban is such a nice young Canadian man.

Habs Prospect NHLE for 2011-12 Season

8

In celebration of the final days Memorial Cup signifying the end of the prospect season and the 4 Montreal prospects still contending for the CHL title (Bournival, Beaulieu, Ellis and Tinordi) it's...

How does AHL production correspond to the NHL?

It's hard to predict how a prospect from the AHL will produce in the NHL, but with a little math, could we find something worthwhile?

Danny Kristo will not sign with Montreal this off-season.

11

Danny Kristo announces he will return to North Dakota next season. This means he will not turn professional this summer within the Canadiens organization like many anticipated.

The best bad team in NHL history?

Going over the data, it seems like the 28th overall Montreal Canadiens weren't actually that horrible.

Oilers Hogging 1st Overall Picks Prevents Habs from Moving in Draft Position.

85

For the third consecutive year, the Edmonton Oilers pick 1st overall by virtue of winning the 2012 NHL Draft lottery. The Columbus Blue Jackets slip to the second selection, while the Montreal...

Jonathan Willis's attempt to find comparables to Shawn Horcoff shows that Plekanec is a pretty good player.

+

His only close comparable being this year's Selke candidate David Backes (who like Bergeron in Boston has been a good Plekanec comparable for some time).

Tyler Dellow's musing on parity is somewhat related to the hilarious gap between Montreal's goal...

Tyler Dellow's musing on parity is somewhat related to the hilarious gap between Montreal's goal differential and their place in the standings.
