Montreal Canadiens half season report card

Here we are, midway through the 82 game struggle to the Stanley cup playoffs and I’m guessing that little people could have bet that the Habs would be sitting in the position they’re in now.

They finished the first half with a 19-15-5-2 record which is above most expectations.

Here is a look of different aspects of their game as well as the club in general through the first 41 games:

I will list the teams that are already taken and I will also put the format of how I want the mid-season report to be.

A Game That Showed Me Some Things

Watching the Penguins vs. Rangers game yesterday, a few things about each team and a little something about the league became apparent to me. Something about the game just made certain things quite clear.

My Dream Stanley Cup Finals

I was sitting back recently and just watching the leafs beat the Rangers again to extend this streak, and thinking to myself… could this be the year? (This was before the Islanders loss. Not that I am jumping off the bandwagon)

Winnipeg wants the Penguins

The Toronto Sun Reports that Winnipeg is interested in aquiring the penguin francise. heres the article:

The deputy mayor of Winnipeg has asked Pittsburgh Penguins owner Mario Lemieux to consider moving his team to Manitoba. In a letter to Lemieux, Coun. Dan Vandal points out that the NHL is facing “difficult decisions” with an imminent labour shutdown, and says Winnipeg is poised to welcome the struggling club if it can’t make things work in Pennsylvania.

Hello! Hope you all had a great Merry Christmas and happy Hollidays. It’s incredible that we’re already heading into 2004, and it doesn’t feel too long ago when the Rangers acquired Lindros in 2001. Anyway, down to business…

The latest trade rumors are here to discuss and some are pathetic, especially coming from my brainless friend Bruce Garrioch.

Speaking of trade rumors, Rangers have been in one almost every day, and we’ll see what another experienced Rangers fan has to say about the goaltending situation.

Lately watching other hockey games, and the refs are even worse than last season.

Still looking for people to write up mid-season reports on South Division teams.

Annnnnnnnnd………..no off-topic rant today. But, there is a good story I’d like to share, it involves hockey’s favorite beverage, beer (Guiness).

Thrash Talk: An Early Christmas

Atlanta got an early Christmas present, seeing Dany Heatley skate for the first time on Tuesday. I know, much too early to really get excited about his return. He still has a long way to go in his rehab, most of which will take place off the ice. Even without any setbacks, his return is likely 6-10 weeks from now. But it was still a step in the right direction, albeit a brief one.

Senators Update

The Senators have gotten off to a rocky start this season, but even with their troubles, they sit in 6th place in the Eastern Conference. Luckily, the Senators’ play has been much improved lately and they are starting to look like the Senators of old.
