CANADIENS RUMORS & GOSSIP
from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet,
Biggest storyline to watch: With Gionta and Gorges gone, this team has really been turned over to the next generation of Price, Subban and Pacioretty. Can they be the guys who lead Montreal back to elite status? It will be interesting to monitor how the top-nine forward group shakes out. Rene Bourque was a beast, at times, in the playoffs, but...
Jarred Tinordi is a massive human being, and he made his presence felt in a big way Sunday night.
The Montreal Canadiens defenseman was given a game misconduct penalty for a huge hit against Washington Capitals forward Nate Schmidt on Sunday in a preseason game at Bell Centre. The hit, which came early in the third period, left Schmidt hurting on the ice at the Montreal blue line...

The Canadiens want to make it very clear that they didn’t make any cuts Wednesday, but it was equally clear that’s exactly what they did as the club divided the camp into two groups.
The main group of 27 (plus the injured Lars Eller) represents the players battling for the 23 roster spots on opening night in Toronto on Oct. 8. The other group, about 40 players when you factor...

Last season, Pacioretty has 39 goals, which led the team’s...

Here’s a pretty random statement from P.K. Subban which might leave you questioning the defenseman. In regards to the topic of NHL expansion, Subban overlooked the obvious contenders such as Las Vegas and Seattle, Subban mentioned a team in Houston.
