Canucks Daily: New Pacific Division Reality, Price is Right in Montreal



Vancouver Canucks foe, Carey Price
Carey Price and the Montreal Canadiens are scheduled to see the Vancouver Canucks on November 9th.

The Vancouver Canucks will see a new look Pacific Division the way things are going in Calgary. The Johnny Gaudreau departure followed by the Matthew Tkachuk imminent departure begins our am twirl around the National Hockey League.

By the way, our follow up report on JT Miller is coming later today, after TSN suggested an actual signing for the veteran lefty centre could be a legitimate option for the Vancouver Canucks. We’ll weigh the realities.


Steve Macfarlane at Calgary Hockey Now says the new developments in Alberta are hitting the fanbase hard, and we’re sure it can’t be doing wonders for the management staff. General manager Brad Treliving must have been thinking the Flames were just one more step away from serious Stanley Cup contention. Instead, he’s lost or is losing his best two forwards. What becomes of the decimated Calgary Flames?

Sportsnet: From Pierre-Luc Dubois to Jason Robertson, take a gander at their list of the top 10 RFAs in the NHL and who will be cashing in some serious dinero. Whom and potentially how much.

Price is Nice

Montreal Hockey Now: There is a growing belief in the Canadiens organization that Carey Price will return and resume his NHL career unhindered. Montreal Canadiens news.

Also in Hab-land, former Florida Panthers and Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Mike Matheson, who was also a teammate of Gaudreau’s at Boston College, sorry Calgary, is already hyped in Montreal. Former junior coach Jon Goyens, who trains several NHL defencemen each summer, including Kris Letang, tells Montreal Hockey Now that Matheson can lead by example with the Canadiens.

Down South

NYI Hockey Now: Islanders General Manager Lou Lamoriello seems to have been looking for a big splash acquisition this summer, and suddenly, another opportunity appears. So, what about landing Tkachuk on the NHL trade market? Stefen Rosner writes that this could be be a Mat for Matt deal. New York Islanders trade talk.

New Flyers Head Coach John Tortorella has been having some long, revealing chats with the fellas at Philly Hockey Now. This time, the boys chat cheesesteaks!! (I’m a Pat’s guy). Philadelphia Flyers fun.

Washington Hockey Now: So what of Alex Ovechkin and Dmitri Orlov getting out of Russia this summer? I mean, isn’t Ovie the big boss man’s buddy? “No concern,” said the Washington Capitals.

Also in DC, an update on Tom Wilson as he recovers from serious injury.

Look For Later …
