It was another summer of change for the Montreal Canadiens.

Following a mostly successful regular season and then a disappointing first-round exit from the playoffs at the hands of the New York Rangers, general manager Marc Bergevin had an eventful summer re-tooling his team.

The Canadiens said goodbye to their longest-tenured member (Andrei Markov), one of their best players from a year ago (Alexander Radulov) and a couple of other role players (Alexei Emelin, Nathan Bealieu). In their place will be an exciting young forward (Jonathan Drouin), a couple of lottery tickets on veterans Ales Hemsky and Mark Streit, and a risky big-ticket free agency in Karl Alzner.

They also made starting goaltender Carey Price one of the highest paid players in the NHL.

Are those the changes the Canadiens need to get over the hump?

Or will it be more of the same in 2017-18 where they only go as far as Price can take them?

Today at PHT we will focus on all of the key storylines impacting the Montreal Canadiens as NHL training camps get closer.
