    Your 2005 - 2006 Montreal Canadiens

    Stardate 4652.8

    The NHL pre-season is over. The teams have all gone through the training camps, and the make or break show of skills that help set the scene for the new season. Montreal has announced their line-up for the new season and surprisingly, there is a rather large amount of rookies playing this year. I am optimistic that Theodore will be strong as usual, and Kovalev will worry about his sore hand after dumping the puck out of the zone this time :) I am also thrilled to see that the Ribeiro/Dagenais connection is still there, as well as seeing Ryder inked. Should be a good season for the Habs, as long as the work ethic remains that was evident the last season.

    22 Steve B├ęgin
    14 Radek Bonk
    51 Francis Bouillon
    38 Jan Bulis
    26 Pierre Dagenais
    25 Mathieu Dandenault
    75 Yann Danis
    21 Chris Higgins
    3 Raitis Ivanans
    11 Saku Koivu
    8 Mike Komisarek
    27 Alex Kovalev
    79 Andrei Markov
    42 Alexander Perezhogin
    35 Tomas Plekanec
    71 Mike Ribeiro
    52 Craig Rivet
    73 Michael Ryder
    44 Sheldon Souray
    32 Mark Streit
    37 Niklas Sundstrom
    60 Jose Theodore
    20 Richard Zednik
    The 6 rookies on the team are goalie Yann Danis who will be backup until Huet is recovered from an injury, Chris Higgins, Alexander Perezhogin, Tomas Plekanec, Raitis Ivanans and Mark Streit. Ivanans is a tough guy through and through, and Streit, who is 27, was the captain of the Swiss national team.

    The new team boasts a lot of speed and talent up front and should do pretty good this year. It is a shame I don't have cable but I am optimistic that I can get CBC in okay with the help of some form of rudimentary antenna. I am not jumping up and down with excitement, but it has indeed been a long time since I saw my team play. So yeah, I guess I am looking forward to the new season :)
