Nice that this kid picked the Canadiens over another team. I had just never heard his name before.

Canadiens announce they've signed free agent forward Jack Nevins to a three-year contract. Here's the press release as many of you (like me) likely had never heard of the guy before: http://canadiens.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=694196
- Comment on Habs’ Murray misses practice; Budaj will face Capitals (2013-11-28 15:17:22)
That would be nice, but I could never envision that happening. I'd love to see the Habs stay totally on RDS and avoid going to Peladeau's TVA Sports network. I used to work for his Quebecor/Stun Media chain and watched as weekly newspapers - some of them well over 100-years-old - were gutted and quartered while independent papers in the same markets picked up the scraps and are now prospering. But, hey, I'm in Ontario... what does he care about "English Canada"?

Bingo. I totally agree.

If being "a pretty crap GM" means taking an embarrassing franchise and making them respectable in roughly 1-1/2 years, I'm fine with having "a pretty crap GM." It's not like the time Bergevin has been with the Canadiens is enough to assess his true worth anyway. Give him a few more years to see how well they've built through the draft, a strategy of Bergevin's I wholeheartedly agree with.

Don't underestimate that shingles vaccination. My father contracted shingles well over a year ago and is still having issues, particularly with one of his eyes. That is an illness he wants no part of again. Very serious.

Bergevin's best move is not listed, and that is sticking to his guns and building through the draft. He doesn't trade away the future for short-term gain, and is committed to building his team's foundation through the draft. He did not inherit a ready-made contender and there simply isn't enough depth to make a splashy trade involving big names without sacrificing the future. It's way too soon to judge Marc Bergevin.
