Montreal Canadiens Season Opens Tomorrow.

Francois GendronSenior Writer ISeptember 30, 2009

The 2009-2010 edition of the Montreal Canadiens is very different from last season. General Manager Bob Gainey found a new coach in Jacques Martin and has drastically modified his roster.

The Canadiens will open their season tomorrow evening against an old rival, the Toronto Maple Leafs. There will be no love lost between those two teams this season as the Leafs did also acquire their share of new players. One of them is defense men Mike Komisarek, coming from the Montreal Canadiens.

The Habs did travel to the Toronto area three days ago and finalized their training camp with a private gathering to try to smoothe the entry of the new players and create some kind of chemistry between the players.

There is still no sign given by the organization with the team's captaincy. As the rumor mill has already debated on the possibilities of who will be the next Montreal Canadiens captain, Jacques Martin did not reveal anything during the training camp.

I cannot wait for this new season to begin. I will be glued to my television tomorrow evening for the season opener between the Leafs and the Habs.
