The Montreal Canadiens stormed out of the gates last season and never looked back en route to winning the Atlantic Division.  They have a roster that seems like a random collection of players with no clear plan.  They’ve gutted their blue line losing a good top 4 in the last year (Subban, Beaulieu, Sergachev, Markov) leaving themselves depending on Shea Weber far too much.  Like last offseason, they made a massive trade in the summer, this time involving two young talents.   This is a team who is getting the small things right but the big things wrong and that gives me significant concern going forward.  Per usual, it’s all on Carey Price’s shoulders.  Their fantasy assets for this season look to be limited but there are a few guys with elite potential and some intriguing guys for deeper leagues.  Let’s take a look at what Les Habitants are working with:

When it comes to the San Jose Sharks, the person playing with the Joes on the first line always gets a nice value boost. Lately, it’s been Patrick Marleau making him a solid streamer given his role on the first power play unit. Now that he’s settled into this spot, we have to talk about whether or not he’s a hold. Marleau had the period of a lifetime scoring four goals in the third period against Colorado. That brings his totals to 16+8 on the season. The shots are right around average and the PIM are low so what’s my verdict? It seems like a cop out but it’s team dependent. If you need goals and STP, then you can hold Marleau at the bottom of your roster. Otherwise, leave him on the waiver wire to hopefully stream. Also, bonus points for those who know the title reference. Here’s what else happened around the league on Monday night:
