Habs getting ready for camp

Not much news yet, as the CBA hasn't been signed, but a few quick notes:


- Negotiations are ready to go between Don Meehan and Marc Bergevin to get PK Subban's new contract worked out.

- Mike Commodore has been invited to Canadiens training camp, giving the Habs a plethora of NHL defencemen

- Alex Galchenyuk is expected to be at Habs camp, and coach Michel Therrien is reported to be a huge fan


My quick two cents: the Commodore bit is interesting, as the Habs already have, arguably, too many defencemen. Perhaps M. Bergevin will swing a trade or two to put his stamp on the club. With Viskovsky walking out on the Isles, perhaps there's a match? Just an idea, but I would be surprised if we don't see a move or two in Montreal before the season begins next weekend.

About The Upper Canadien

The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.

I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
