The former Montreal Canadiens who are playing in the second round while the current Canadiens players season is over. P.K. Subban (Nashville Predators), Lars Eller (Washington Capitals), David Desharnais and Zack Kassian (Edmonton Oilers) were all traded by general manager Marc Bergevin tried to improve the roster to take the next step towards a Stanley Cup Finals. Bergevin Head coach Michel Therrien before season ended once Claude Julien was available after losing his Boston Bruins job.
Bergevin had the worst season in the Canadiens organization. Shea Webber giving his consent to sign Alexander Radulov kept the Canadiens at top of the Atlantic Division. Radulov amazing play couldn’t lead his team past the New York Rangers. Webber brought what he could to the team, but offensively he is no Subban.

The Canadiens can’t expect to win 1 – 0 games with Carey Price being spectacular every night. The Canadiens roster only had two players score more than 20 goals (Max Pacioretty and Paul Byron) compared to the Ottawa Senators (3), Toronto Maple Leafs (5), Winnipeg Jets (5), Calgary Flames (2) and Edmonton Oilers (5). All the other Canadian team have young talented players that they drafted.
Bergevin has been at helm of the Montreal Canadiens since 2012 and has nothing to show for it. The Canadiens should seriously consider changing their general manager while Price is still with the organization. The nucleus is Price (29), Max Pacioretty (28), Radulov (30), Webber (31), Tomas Plekanec (34) and Andrei Markov (38). This group got a year older and closer to a window closing on how far the team can go in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Should the Canadiens clean house from top to bottom?
Have a fantastic day!
