Saturday's Dump & Chase: Team Previews

In a time of year when news is a bit slow, it's always interesting to read up on other teams. From yesterday's news we have a few previews on the Montreal Canadiens and the Chicago Blackhawks.

Team Previews

Poll: Where will the Canadiens finish in the East this year?
Will a healthy Carey Price get them back on the right track?

One way or another, Al Montoya will be important to Canadiens | ProHockeyTalk
The goalie backup role is a very underrated role in the NHL. He's practically the only way a team can remain successful through a starting goalies' injury.

Adding toughness was an offseason priority for the Canadiens | ProHockeyTalk
Well, they picked two good candidates in Andrew Shaw and Shea Weber.

Inside look at Chicago Blackhawks |
It's always tough having the Chicago Blackhawks in your division.

Top prospects for Chicago Blackhawks |
Draft picks like Nick Schmaltz make the Blackhawks the perennial Stanley Cup contender they are today.

Chicago Blackhawks fantasy outlook |
Chicago Blackhawks forwards Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin are elite fantasy players, and defenseman Brent Seabrook is shown as undervalued.

Jared Bednar: Off to a Good Start | Mile High Hockey
Bednar is saying the right things but words mean only so much. How he deals with the dumpster fire that is the Colorado Avalanche's roster will be more telling.

Ducks take Max Jones with 24th pick in NHL entry draft | LA Times
If you'll remember, Max Jones was a highly touted prospect coming into the 2016 draft who was viewed as a potential Nashville Predators pick.

What Are The Islanders Doing With Ryan Strome | Today's Slapshot
Ryan Strome remains unsigned after a sophomore slump but he still has plenty of time to right the ship.

12 NHL teams could have perfect goal songs using these local musicians | FOX Sports
The band has got the gold reference in the song but I don't know if I could deal with knowing the Predators goal song was written by a group named "Diarrhea Planet."

An All-Snubs team would be a force to reckon with up front and on defense at the World Cup of Hockey | ESPN
That's a pretty Predator heavy all-snub team.

NHL teams leaning more heavily on AHL for head coaches, prospects | Toronto Sun
The sooner teams get prospects into their organization the better.
