You will forgive me if I drag myself a little longer in my messages this morning. When it’s not the Canadian who keeps me awake until the wee hours of the morning due to his games in the west of the continent, it’s CF Montreal.
But at least – unlike the Canadian 2021-22 – L’Impact 2022 knows how to put on a show. Last night the eleven from Montreal managed to beat the CONCACAF Champions League champions at home in Seattle. 2-1 thanks to Mason Toye’s brace, who was on his first start in almost a year, and two superb assists from the talented, old and the humble Kei Kamara.
Results : Montreal is at the Eastern Conference summit this morning. Only LAFC has more points than Montreal currently in MLS …
Do I have to remind you that Impact started their regular season winless in four games?
CF Montreal has the best attack (goal for) in the East, but also one of the worst defensive players (goals versus). To remain only if the club wins And who scores a lot of goals, I won’t complain about it … even if at this moment he gives up a little too much.
next game : Monday night in Los Angeles (Galaxy) … at 10:30 PM EST! Excuse me for my first text on Tuesday morning, okay?
A home for Samuel Montembeault
Samuel Montembeault still does not have the contract for next season in his pocket. Montembeault, 25, was revoked last October. He earned a salary of $ 750,000 in 2021-22. If he had to play in the American League, his salary would have been more than $ 250,000. All in US dollars, by the way …
The Canadian still has a few days to submit a qualifying offer Monty and so make sure you keep your rights. I bet it will …
This offer is expected to be $ 787,500. And if I understand the collective agreement correctly, it will have to be a single component, this offer.
With all the uncertainty related to Carey Price’s knee, securing a goalkeeper like Montembeault at such a low price is THE what to do for the CH. Whatever Montembeault may then require arbitration and receive a little more money … but I believe Kent Hughes and Montembeault’s agent will reach an agreement before being dictated by a possible arbitrator.
Montembeault has just completed a first full campaign in the NHL. What did he do with all the money he got? He has just bought a beautiful house in Trois-Rivières with his wife Daryanne.
Note that he no longer has wrist protection (operated after the season).
Should we read any clues about Montembeault’s future behind this purchase?
No! Montembeault will not be sent with the Trois-Rivières Lions in 2022-23, hehe!
The Canadiens goalkeeper is from Bécancour, on the other side of the bridge, and is already doing it moves for his post-career (and his summers, which he likes to spend in Quebec).
You will still need to find an apartment in Brossard, Candiac, La Prairie, Laval or Montreal during the season. Or elsewhere in North America, if ever Price and Allen start the season with the big club, which Montembeault is subject to waivers early in the campaign and is claimed by another team …
I am happy for the couple Samuel-Daryannetwo good people who have chosen to settle in theirs region despite Samuel’s recent successes. Good luck in your new life guys!

Extremely happy for Gardiner and the @SJSeaDogs since no one is more passionate about the game and we need this opportunity and this moment. The boys are in a hellish horse race today. https://t.co/DSe86DWVXF

– He changed a lot of things in Bianca.
Pleasant meeting a #Wimbledon Wednesday. The one with Bianca’s coach #Andreescu: Abdul #Silla. A great discovery. IF Andreescu follows his advice, he could regain his place at the top. Details: https://t.co/lXPtK5Rk28

– Good words for Wilfried Nancy and his Seattle team players.
Montreal one of the best teams I have seen in person this year. Bold and adventurous with their shape. The players have a good understanding of their roles. Really well trained by Wilfred Nancy. I thought Matko Miljevic was great tonight. Kone is also really lively
