Galchenyuk wins Molson Cup for January

The Canadiens announced on Wednesday afternoon that rookie Alex Galchenyuk is the Molson Cup winner for the month of January.

Galchenyuk was selected once as the first star of the game (Jan. 22 against Florida), and once as the second star (Jan. 29 against Winnipeg). He finished ahead of teammates Brendan Gallagher and Carey Price

 The 18-year old Galchenyuk, selected with the No. 3 overall pick at last year’s NHL entry draft, appeared in six games in January, recording five points (one goal, four assists) and a plus-3. He served four penalty minutes while playing an average of 12:24 per game.

 Galchenyuk will be presented with the Molson Cup during a ceremony before Wednesday’s game against the Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre (7:30 p.m., TSN, RDS, TSN 690 Radio).

    Are you afraid of a hockey CRASH!

    The anticipation for this game has me really keyed up. This is the fist game where that total hockey adrenalin has taken over my body… no ifs/why/or buts.

    In fact it has me so into hockey that I started having this awful waking nightmare.

    Has the thought crossed your mind? If HABS doesn’t make the playoffs (I am betting they will) that you will suffer the biggest hockey crash ever. There just isnt enough hockey in a 48 game schedule to avert that crash if we dont make the playoff.
    Then I would be cussing Bettman/Fehr and the lockout.

    So Chucky will be presented a cup at the start of the game………but what happened to the whole “team” and “humble” garbage MT was talking about?

    I understand it’s a tradition but there’s nothing “team” or “humble” about this, infact it’s probably the most individualistic and unmodest thing one could get.

    MT is great for the short run but his act will wear out in the long.

      Maybe it’s just a matter of time before MT bans this as well.

      Would you like some cheese to go with that whine?

    • habstrinifan says:

      I kinda disagree with you on this one. But I would have given Markov the award. But then again the award is based on star selection it seems and since the fans pick the stars this will happen.

      It was suggested to go back to the old way of picking the stars. Maybe they should have both..the fans pick after the game and maybe a ‘professional’ pick which would count in Molson Cup tally.

    Gally has played well but I think Markov should have got it
