Prust wins Jacques Beauchamp Trophy

The Canadiens announced on Saturday morning that forward Brandon Prust is the winner of this season’s Jacques Beauchamp-Molson Trophy that goes to the player who played a dominant role during the regular season, without earning any particular honour.

 The award is voted on by media members covering the team. Josh Gorges was the winner last season. Prust received the most first-place votes, earning 83 points to finish ahead of defenceman Francis Bouillon (58) and goaltender Peter Budaj (52).

“I don’t always agree with you guys, but this one I agree with,” coach Michel Therrien told reporters after Saturday’s morning skate in Brossard about Prust winning the award.

In 34 games this season, Prust has posted 5-8-13 totals and leads the team with 104 penalty minutes. He is also tied for the team lead in plus/minus at plus-11. Prust, who ranks second on the team with 78 hits, missed eight games as a result of a shoulder injury suffered on March 9 in Tampa Bay. 

The Jacques Beauchamp-Molson Trophy was created in 1981 to honour the memory of the legendary sportswriter who spent most of career covering the Canadiens. The first winner of the award was Doug Jarvis following the 1981-82 season.

Prust will be presented with the award before Saturday’s game against the Washington Capitals at the Bell Centre (7 p.m., CBC, RDS, TSN Radio 690).

After enjoying a day off Friday, all the Canadiens players were on the ice for Saturday’s morning skate in Brossard, including Colby Armstrong, who has been sidelined since April 1 with a knee injury. Armstrong is listed as day-to-day and won’t play against the Capitals.

Carey Price will start in goal for the Canadiens.

Raphael Diaz, who has missed 25 games since being sidelined on Feb. 25 with a concussion, will return to the lineup against the Capitals.

“We’ll manage his ice time depending on how he feels,” Therrien told reporters in Brossard. “We’ll see how his conditioning and timing are and go from there.

“It’s exciting news that he’s back,” the coach added. “He’s got four games to bring the game we’re looking for. He’s playing with confidence.”

The lines at practice were: Pacioretty-Plekanec-Gionta; Ryder-Desharnais-Bourque; Gallagher-Eller-Galchenyuk; Prust-Halpern-Moen; Armstrong-Dumont-Blunden. Ryan White, who is suspended, also skated.

Defence pairings were: Markov-Diaz; Gorges-Subban; Weber-Bouillon; Drewiske-Kaberle.

    Impressed by Tanner Glass. Jokinen 4 goals -2 assists in 6 games since coming over from Carolina. Iginla seems very slow, the Pens payed a big price for the results so far.

  2. fastfreddy says:

    I hope DD sits out tonight. He brings little to game.
    CH = Les Glorieux!!!

  3. BJ says:

    Jokinen ties it 1-1

  4. Seps says:

    Just looking into some bad trades how about Colorado… Shattenkirk Stewart (Ty Rattie) for E. Johnson (Duncan Siemens). That trade doesn’t begin to make sense, the GM not only missed the boat, but missed the ocean on that one.

  5. BJ says:

    Horton hurt in the take down by Iginla out for the game.

  6. Ghosts of the Forum says:

    Glad to see Wber stays in. I was/am skeptical of him, buthe’s played well enough these past two games. He’s earned it.

  7. Bill H says:

    I thought Armstrong was out for the season. That is great news that he will soon be back. With the exception of Emelin, we are approaching full strength just in time for the playoffs. Prust gone and now back in the line up. Bourque returned from a concussion. Diaz returning tonight. Now, if we can only start playing decently as a team, we might win some games when it counts.

  8. JF says:

    I’m hoping we at least play well tonight, and that if we lose, it’s not because of shaky goaltending and defensive breakdowns all over the ice. Going into the last week of the season, I want to see solid goaltending and defence, not Price looking like a deer in the headlights and the D scrambling all over the place.

    Seps, you aren’t even on the right page….It would take a heck of a lot more than that…

    • Seps says:

      You think? His cap hit is 6M a year and he’s scratched right now so his stock isn’t at what it would normally be. Heavy payment for a guy to sit up with Bissionette. Not that he’ll be there long. But it’s a solid D prospect which they’re in dire need of, 2nd or 1st rounder, then a forward prospect like LL.

    @SteverenO True our STs haven’t been consistent, but like MT has already stated, there is not much time to sharpen up in practices simply because if the shortened season…I am willing to bet, the team has less than the normal amount of practices it would have had if it was a regular 82 game season….Give the guy a break..He has turned this team completely around..There is bound to be some needed tweaks…

    Horton-Iginla tilt not much with Iginla doing an Aikido move for the take down.

    Funny I still badly want the Bruins to get clobbered 10-0 or 10-1 in front of their home crowd, whom I know is in dire need of some artificial relief from current reality in their city. Seeing them cheer for a win would be the humane thing to want.

    The somber moment when one realizes you do have some serious hate in your heart for a certain city and people because of sports… -)

  17. Seps says:

    If the Bruins win today, chances are Habs have to go 4-0 to win the division.

  18. The Jackal says:

    As propwash said down below, I would gladly take Lucic.
    I hope they run him out of town so we can grab him.

    Imagine – Prust, Lucy, Tinordi – Nice!!!
    That plus our other gritty guys, makes us tough as balls.

  19. Adidess says:

    Would have given the award to Plekanec (since being ‘dominant’ at team level is apparently the criterion). That said, I think Prust gets it for perceived overall impact… Which is fair enough. I like Prust, think he’s helped the team a lot in the toughness and grit department where we still lack some.

    • DDO_Habs_Fan says:

      Forget the definition. I think the award is intended for a “bottom half of the roster” player who has made a significant contribution. That’s why FB and Budaj finished 2nd and 3rd.

    For me Prust is more than the 4th star . Well deserved award anyway for a hard working guy.
    Would have given it to Budaj cause he really made a difference when least expected more than once this season.

  25. BJ says:

    Tanner Glass puts on a pretty good beating on McQuaid.

  26. SteverenO says:

    While the Canadiens have performed far better than anticipated this year and many give much of the credit to Michel Therrien, there is something that is deeply concerning about the coach that worries me going into the playoffs .

    I do not want to appear to be totally negative so let me start by saying that I recognize that Therrien has done a lot of good things and he deserves a lot of credit for changing the attitude of the team and for instilling pride in the CH sweater that has been sorely missing for many years:

    While far from the only example of improper allocation of playing time, the powerplay is the best place to illustrate the concern; It is on the special teams where the coach gets to decide, in advance, while under no pressure who shall be deployed in the powerplay and penalty kill units. There should be a “first” wave and second wave (and perhaps even third wave for the powerplay.

    Data/statistics are readily available and anyone can easily discover which players have had success and which ones have not.

    Everyone knows that Markov and Subban are the top two defenseman on the point and perhaps the “key” to the PP success. Here is a list of the forwards number of PPGs while their unit has been on the ice, success rate (calculated as the number of goals scored per every two minutes of PP time on the ice), and the overall deployment percentage. ( Before Loonie, Luke, and others start claiming that you cannot measure an individual’s performance based on a team “result” please take note that that is EXACTLY what the coach is paid to do. His job is to get the best performance from his team, individual success is not his objective, nor should it be. In this case the job at hand is to decide on which GROUP of players should be playing on the power play. )

    Gionta- .350 AVG – 22 PPGs – 42% PP-TOI season)
    8 mins /2 goals last 3 games)
    Ryder- .360 AVG- 23 PPGs – 42% PP-TOI season)
    9 mins/ 1 Goal/ last 3 games)
    Plekanec .350 AVG – 22 PPGs – 41% PP-TOI season
    10 mins/ 2 goals/last 3 games
    Desharnais .210 AVG – 14 PPGs- 43% PP-TOI season
    15 mins/ 1 Goal /last 3 games)
    Pacioretty .230 AVG – 14PPGs—40% PP-TOI season
    14 mins/2 Goals-last 3 games
    Gallagher .160 AVG – 7 PPGs – 28% * PP-TOI season
    12 mins/ 1 Goal-last 3 games)
    Bourque- .270 AVG – 9 PPGs – 22%PP –TOI season
    7 mins/ 0 Goals- last 3 games
    Gally27 – .170 AVG – 4 PPGs- 15% PP-TOI – season
    3 mins/ 0 Goals- last 3 games
    Eller – .400 AVG – 5 PPGs- 8% PP-TOI- season
    4 mins/0 Goals- last 3 games

    *Gallagher has played approx 45% of PP-TOI since Cole was traded

    It is apparent that The coaching staff as a whole and MT in particular either do not know, or do not care to recognize which players and which forward line has consistently been the more productive over the course of the season. When we see DD’s line go out to start a powerplay EVEN when Plek’s lien is fresh, is very disturbing. How can the coaching staff not be aware of the the players effectiveness in different situations?

    To see Gallagher continue to be on the PP unit (IN PLACE of Bourque/Eller/ and Gallchenyuk), despite putting up Gomez-like PP is very disturbing. You would think that 95 Minutes of PP time is enough of a period to evaluate a players performance?

    On a side note, some of us “laymen fans” here have noticed that Markov seemed to be needing a rest beginning less than halfway through the season. In fact I tried to generate a discussion about why it was that the goalie was rested on back to back games but older banged up veterans were rarely given a day off.
    Markov .310 AVG – 32 PPGs 70% PP-TOI season- 19 mins/1 PPG last 3 games
    Subban .320 AVG – 28 PPGs 59% PP-TOI season- 21 mins/2 PPG last 3 games
    Bouillion. ,220 AVG 8 PPGs 24% PP-TOI season 6 minute/2 PPGs last 3 games

    Do you think the coaching staff could see what us layman see? Markov is breaking down.
    He is of little value to the team in his current condition. What did the coaching staff do?
    In the last 4 games Markov is a -7 and has played 93 mins (average over 23 minutes/game).

    Please someone tell the coaching staff to “get in the game!”

    • Bill H says:

      Thanks for trying to elevate the discussion here with some hard stats. Sadly, your point is lost on mere fans like me as you have not clearly explained what your stats mean. You seem to have used some kind of coded language. I suspect that your points (put Eller and Galyenchuk on PP instead of Gallagher and DD; manage Markov’s ice time better? If there are other points, I completely missed them) are very valid, but quite frankly and respectfully, I don’t understand what you are saying. Your comments read kinda like an article by Berkshire over at EOTP.

      • SteverenO says:

        @BILL h.

        I aopreciate the kind words and I apologize for the “code” and stat-speak. I was simple trying to point out that over the course of the first 40 games of the season the numbers indicate quite clearly that certain players have a far better success rate than others in powerplay situations.

        Gallagher has a .160 average versus Gionta ‘s .360. That means that in a two minute span on the powerplay, the team has a 36% chance of scoring a goal when GIonta is on the ice versus a 16% chance when Gallagher is on the ice. With Plekanec the chances for a goal are 35% whereas with Desharnais its 21%.

        The difference in their effectiveness is so dramatic that it is impossible that thecoaches are not aware of it, YET……..

        The way the players are being utilized, (Desharnais is getting as much,or more time on the PP than Plek’s line (and frequently is sent out to start the PP, while the “better” unit is on second and therefore paired much of the time with the second defense pairing)indicates that the coaching staff are NOT optimizing the teams chance’s to score powerplay goals.

        Combining that with the fact that they continue to “ride” Markov to the point of rendering him ineffective, it indicates to me that the team will not go as far as they could in the playoffs as a direct result of these coaching mistakes.

        When we get knocked out of the playoffs, everyone will talk about the need to get bigger,and tougher, players. better goaltending, upgrading their 4th liners, but the reality is that it does not matter who the players are if the coaches do not utilize them properly.

        Last season was a disaster,largely because our PP was awful, In reality our PP was decent when GOMEZ was NOT on the ice. Had the coaching staff done nothing other than leave Gomez on the bench during the powerplays, the team would have done much better.

        In retrospect, we are lucky that the coaches were inept last year as it enabled us to move up in the draft and resulted in us getting Galchenyuk. Seeing him sit on the bench during PP’s when he is starting to gain his scoring touch, is very disturbing.

        It is obvious that Gallagher, despite being awesome at even strength, is simply not effective on the PP. its time to give other player’s a shot.

        While there is no guarantee that the PP will do any better with other players in Gallagher’s spot, but is absolutely certain that it will NOT do any worse.

        regards,

        Steve O.

        • Bill H says:

          Thanks Steve. That is clearer now. Your stats certainly do suggest that improvements could come on PP by a change in players. I’d be curious to see your suggestions implemented.

    • Mark C says:

      Complaining about the 4th best power play team in the league, interesting…

      The biggest issue I have with your “stats” is the utter lack of any context. Who is each player playing with, what is the level of competition they face, level of situational importance, etc.

    • johnnylarue says:

      As an all-purpose rebuttal to people who would like to see more of Eller + Chucky on the PP–just watch them the next time they’re on the ice on a powerplay. They’re much too frantic/panicked in their efforts and often can’t manage to establish control in the offensive zone. The opposing penalty killers smell fear and up the pressure accordingly, which results in easy zone clearances.

      It’s just a question of confidence/experience, but this has a lot to do with the reason that MT continues to throw DD out there in spite of unfavourable PP stats. He’s much better at maintaining puck possession and setting up the PP formation, which is key to building some momentum from the PP even if it doesn’t score.

  27. BJ says:

    Bruins dominating the Pens in the first 5 minutes. No score as yet, Vokoun looking good so far.

  28. Timo says:

    Say what you will about Julien but he had balls to scratch Lucic, yet Therrein is afraid to sit an absolutely useless 4th liner.

  29. AH says:

    LOL! I just love how bi-polar this site is:

    - “We need more size on the back end!” – MB grabs Drewiskie, good size, does what’s asked of him, moves the puck, chips in offensively, overall plays a credible game, albeit not a perfect game; HIO commentary: this guys sucks, he’s a bum, MB is an idiot for picking him up!

    - Last year: “please can we get rid of both the Swiss Misses, they’re too small and soft!” this year Diaz starts off well, gets hurt and now it’s “oh how we miss Diaz, he’s our savior!”, and “is Weber ready to go yet”?

    - We get pushed around and manhandled and it’s “we’re too smalll and soft and our D especially is too small and they’re going to get detroyed in the playoffs” then it’s “let’s get Diaz and Weber and even Kaberle?! back in there and take Drewiskie out”, or it’s “let’s bring up Beaulieu instead of Tinordi or Pateryn.”

    - Carey Price: oh, I won’t even go there…

    The flip flopping on here is hilarious and highly entertaining.

    • Seps says:

      My favourite was my buddy who’s a Boston fan texted me right after game 2 in 2011 (the accursed year they won the Cup) against the Habs saying “This team is a bunch of goons who think they can play hockey but they can’t. Thomas is awful, I don’t know why Rask isn’t playing. Julien needs to be fired.” Needless to say he had to re-evaluate his stance haha.

    • mount royal says:

      AH. Flip-flop? Isn`t this forum for discussion? For airing different views ? For respecting different opinions? Do you expect uniformity or efforts to achieve consensus? Not here…pleeese .

  30. krob1000 says:

    I am very happy to see the d pairings I had hoped for. Interesting they are still going with those forward lines….may again mean limited minutes for Eller’s line though.

    • ed says:

      I am a huge Eller fan. When Therrien benched him and some here questioned his work ethic I fought hard on the Pro Eller side,

      But I think there’s a turnover issue in his game that Therrien does not like. Entering the offensive zone, Eller needs to avoid turning the puck over.

    • Phil C says:

      If Plekanec’s line gets the Ovechkin match up, no question that it will reduce the icetime for the other three lines. I hope they match Ovechkin up with Subban and Gorges as well.

      The kid line can still have a big impact if they can score again.

  31. Boomer says:

    LOVE the idea of Diaz and Markov in the O zone. VERY nervous when the puck will be in our D zone though

    “And the Beat goes on…NO MORE QUESTIONS!!”

    • krob1000 says:

      shouldn;t be an issue….both have incredible anticipation and if they get the puck they advance it immediately….the puck wil spend a lot of time on our forwards sticks with that pair on the ice. Diaz is a lso very good on the pk and many here underate his defensvie ability. He has a greart stick, can skate and is a really good play reader. yes he lacks phsyicality but he more than makes up for it.

    Is tonight’s game another measuring stick? Perhaps another litmus test. I propose we treat it as the first litmus stick of the season.

    … ‘ow could we forget that?

  33. christophor says:

    Prust’s great. But there are plenty singing his praises.

    Neither he nor Plekanec will win any official honour this year, but it’s the stretch of all stretches to say Prust has been the more “dominant” of the two. Same goes for Gionta, Markov, and and several others.

    I’m not upset; just pointing out that the award is really not for the most dominant player who doesn’t win another award. It’s for the most liked player who doesn’t win another award.

      • Bob_Sacamano says:

        I agree. I love Prust too and Eller and most of the others as well but Plekanec is by far the best and most important forward on this team. Would we have made the playoffs without Prust? Very, very likely yes. Without Plekanec? I don´t know.

      • DDO_Habs_Fan says:

        I don’t think you can give an “unsung hero” award to your number one center who is supposed to be good. There should be a Rodney Dangerfield “No respect” award which Plekanec would win easily…

      I can only hope thats because they are being careful with Armstrong, cause otherwise there is absolutely no justification for Moen to still be in the lineup.

  36. Ian Cobb says:

    In Prust we trust!

    Prust and Gallagher are 50% of the turn around from last year!
    Give them both some time off before the play-offs.

    • B says:

      An important player like Eller should get also reduced TOI for the remainder of the season. He has been used even more than Prust and Gallagher. They should give Desharnais some extra shifts while going easy on Eller, that way Eller can be well rested, fresher and ready to soar come playoff time.

    Please let this one be short and let the game be one where they all play with Prust’s character and beat the Caps.

    I want a good game. CAPS play WELL! We play BETTER! And we WIN led by our ‘elites’. GO HABS GO!

    And yes this game is a measuring stick like the last game against WSH was and if we fail it then no excuses should be made.

    • Seps says:

      Hows this a measuring stick game? Were above them in the standings. That word is tossed around way too frequently on this site. One doesn’t measure their height everyday, you measure it every month or so, same applies to hockey.

      Edit: Measure your height when you’re growing up, obviously becomes futile at a certain point

      • habstrinifan says:

        If you dont see a game being played just after the HABS had squeaked a 1 goal win against a lowly Tampa BAY after comming off a dreadful run which began against a HOT WSH and a HOT OVI as a chance to see if the team is approaching some semblance of Playoff industry… and which could also give an indication of our game compared to say OTTAWA who handed these Caps a loss based on a superbly executed game… therefore a playoff measuring stick… then you probably reject the doctrine of quotodian meliorism in favour of complacent fatalism.

    Following yesterday’s conspiracy theory of Molson phoning Therrien and saying he wants them to finish high for revenue purposes… I have a conspiracy theory this award was created to give out during a non-gold game, so it becomes gold for revenue purposes ;-)

    If pregame skate is any indication, Drewskie out Diaz in. Prust in Armstrong and Dumont out.

    Cammalleri has no front teeth..

  63. AH says:

    Totally deserving award! If the Habs had a few more Prusts and Gallys, they would be a force! Prust is my overwhelming choice for the next captain of this team, the guy is all heart and leadership with a capital “L”.

  64. DDO_Habs_Fan says:

    Excellent choice…good for Brandon. Now MB go get another one like him…

    Anybody who fights Lucic deserves some kind of award.

    The proper thing

  71. habturner says:

    Good for Prust; Bad for a pre game award ceremony

  72. disgustedhabsfan says:

    Well deserved. Congratulations to BP for setting the tone for a turn around season and instilling a winning attitude.

  73. The Dude says:
