Save on every ticket. Guaranteed.
The Montreal Canadiens have unquestionably been the most successful franchise in NHL history. But last year, they experienced a rare transitional season that saw them finish fifth in the Atlantic Division for the first time in 11 years. They changed coaches after a slow start (going from Jacques Martin to Randy Cunneyworth) and fired general manager Pierre Gauthier and advisor Bob Gainey.
Incoming general manager Marc Bergevin hired new head coach Michel Therrien in May, so that will be three head coaches in two years for one of the league’s most traditionally stable franchises.
The Canadiens have won an incredible 23 Stanley Cup championships, which leads the NHL, and is one of the most impressive totals out of all North American professional sports teams. After restocking their front office, the team has been active this offseason in retaining and adding the type of talent every organization needs in order to compete for a Stanley Cup.
In last June’s draft, they selected Alex Galchenyuk, who sets up to be an extremely important piece down the line. Other smart sign-ons include the long time franchise goalie Carey Price to a six-year, $39 million contract and the team’s reigning point leader, left winger Max Pacioretty, to a six-year, $27 million extension.
