Real work begins now for Victor Mete and Canadiens

  Real work begins now for Victor Mete and Canadiens Victor Mete is the youngest player on the Montreal Canadiens roster and he figures to be one of its most important ones, too. On a team that doesn’t feature a single other defenceman who can skate as fluidly as he does, he’s a natural fit as a partner for Shea Weber.That’s the role Mete’s been in since training camp got underway, and it’s the role he’s expected to keep—at least until he plays his way out of it or another player on the team emerges as a better candidate.

The 39-year-old’s second tenure with the Habs is limited to just two games.

Playing just two games before being a healthy scratch for the last two matchups, Mark Streit has been placed on waivers by the Montreal Canadiens.

He will be eligible to be claimed by the other 30 teams for the next 24 hours. Should he clear he could be reassigned to the Laval Rocket of the AHL, but a more favourable solution for both parties may be the mutual agreement of a contract termination.

  Marc Bergevin facing a make or break season as Canadiens GM The Montreal Canadiens come into 2017-18 relying on their goaltender more than ever before, and hoping a slower defence and an offence with plenty of question marks steps up.Bergevin may not be staring down the other end of a loaded gun barrel—he has a five-year contract extension that kicks in this season—but he’s reached the proverbial fork in the road. It’s time to find out if the model he’s invested in will bring the team closer to the ultimate goal of winning a Stanley Cup.

The Montreal Canadiens have placed veteran defenceman Mark Streit on waivers . Streit signed a one-year, 0,000-contract in July with 0,000 in potential performance bonuses. This is his second stint with Montreal after he began his career there in 2005.

With no one placed on waivers today, there are still 28 players remaining with the Montreal Canadiens . The roster needs to be reduced to 23 by Tuesday, but David Schlemko will be exempt from the total should he start the year on the Injured Reserve list. Mark Streit (D, NHL).

Were he to agree to report to the Rocket, the Habs can bury the remainder of his $700,000 salary as he’s on the first (and only) year of a new contract as a 35+ player. Only the handful of days he was on the NHL roster to start the season will be on the books.

Brought on to help the team on the man advantage, the play of Victor Mete made the Streit decision an easy one for the Habs. Mete has been getting time alongside Shea Weber, and bringing a much-needed skill set to the club so far as a 19-year-old.
