Without being Kirby Dach, contrary to what Renaud Lavoie thinks, Sean Monahan is a very important player for the Habs. Not only is the center a guy who collects points, which is quite unexpected, but he’s also an undisputed leader and an outstanding teammate.
No, Monahan isn’t the team’s MVP, but he’s awfully important. Last year, he played just 25 games and scored 17 points in that span. And when he was injured, the team literally collapsed that very night…
Mind-blowing stat of the day: Sean Monahan has more points this season than Jonathan Huberdeau and Nazem Kadri…combined 🤯#Flames

It’s not the statistics as such that are important. Because after less than 10 games, it’s not out of the ordinary for an “average” player to have more points than two star players combined.
Let’s not forget that Nazem Kadri signed a massive seven-year, $49 million contract… minutes after seeing Kent Hughes acquire Mony’s services. In other words: Calgary got rid (literally) of their center to sign a guy who should/should, in theory, be much better. What’s more, he had just won the Stanley Cup.
In my opinion, both forwards will bounce back. They’re far too talented to continue being bad. They’ve just changed coach and the sample under him is still very thin. If they continue to “produce” at such a rate in two months’ time, we’ll start to worry.
For now, don’t panic. If you have them in your pools, don’t abandon them. But for now, Monahan, a guy who wasn’t in the Flames’ plans, is producing more than both players TOGETHER.
– He’s so special.
