The pressure is on Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin and his scouting staff. That’s because, with the No. 3 pick at the upcoming NHL Entry Draft (in Dallas on June 22-23), they have a chance to right the trajectory of a ship that’s been set off course.

When Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin said he’ll “be there at the draft in Dallas,” he didn’t say in what capacity. To Promote or Fire Bergevin The implication was of course he wasn’t getting fired and had the full support of Canadiens owner Geoff Molson as the team’s GM. Theoretically though, that would further

They still came out ahead with the deal… albeit slightly.

One of the criticisms in the Marc Bergevin era has been the lack of star prospects coming up. Reasons for that include having to trade for impact players and development has been a cause for debate over the years with players failing to develop as expected.

If you’re the Montreal Canadiens, you’re probably just looking to turn the page on the trade that sent breakout-defenseman Mikhail Sergachev to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Jonathan Drouin last summer.

Following a five-game winning streak, the mediocre Montreal Canadiens have fallen back down to Earth. Nothing short of a miraculous turnaround of their season and those of several teams above them in the standings will enable them to reach the playoffs.

It has been a tough start to the season for the Montreal Canadiens, to say the least. They are 2-7-1 and are 29th in the league with five points. Only the winless Arizona Coyotes have been worse.
