The Montreal Canadiens began camp just over a week ago. Since then we have seen them take the ice in several practices, an intense Red vs White scrimmage game as well as three exhibition contests. Wins and losses don’t really matter in the preseason of course, but the Habs have gone undefeated thus far, beating the New Jersey Devils and taking a pair of games from the Florida Panthers.
What is more important than winning games at this time of year is evaluating where the young players in the organization stand. It is important for young players to have a great camp if they want to crack the NHL roster for the first time.
