The Montreal Canadiens have had a good offseason: making a number of good hires, great selections at the NHL Entry Draft and adding players via free agency.

The Habs’ roster is beginning to fill up with the addition of Brandon Prust, Colby Armstrong and the re-signing of restricted free agent Lars Eller.
