Who Are Your 3 Stars for December?
December was a tough month for the Montreal Canadiens, as they played 10 out
of 15 games on the road, including 7 consecutive games away from the Bell
Centre. Perhaps as a result, the Canadiens turned out a 6-8-1 record, good
for 13 points, as they finally conceded their divisional lead to the Boston
Bruins. December was also a busy month for GM Pierre Gauthier; James
Wisniewski was acquired from the New York Islanders to bolster Montreal’s
blue-line, and Maxim Lapierre was shipped to Anaheim after requesting a trade.
Other highlights included P.K. Subban being made a healthy scratch on multiple
occasions, Dustin Boyd clearing waivers and going down to the AHL and Scott
Gomez returning from a lower body injury. Finally, after tearing up the AHL, Max Pacioretty was called up from Hamilton
and instantly injected some physicality and scoring ability to Montreal’s top-6.
Although the many storylines may have garnered the most attention during the
month of December, we here at Habsworld want to know what personal performances
stood out for you (in a good way). In a month where Montreal domination
and good luck were in short-supply, your votes should paint an interesting
picture. Select the players most deserving of star-honours from the
