The prototype of a perfect pupil, Brendan Gallagher has proven to be a coach's dream at every level he's ever played.
The Emelin Effect
With his knack for dishing out punishment, Alexei Emelin never had trouble making his presence felt on the ice. Yet his biggest impact on the team came with him suddenly out of the lineup.
The Hurt Locker
He's never scored a goal in nearly two decades with the Canadiens, but Graham Rynbend has done his part for the team, one stitch, ice pack and treatment at a time.

Breezy Does it
In his near two decade career in the NHL, Patrice Brisebois spanned multiple generations with the Canadiens. There isn't much the Stanley Cup champ hasn't seen over the years, so we called on the retired blue-liner and current Canadiens player development coach to share some insider info with us.

We caught up with the 52-year-old analyst to find out more about his passion for the puck.
