Manny Malhotra, Mike Weaver and P.A. Parenteau will be scratched in Tuesday's big divisional game against Tampa Bay.
Many expected Parenteau to be a top-six forward for the Habs this season, but that hasn't panned out. Weaver and Malhotra don't bring anything to the table fantasy-wise. Mar 10 - 7:18 PM

Mike Weaver will get back into the lineup for Thursday's game against Los Angeles.

Weaver has been a healthy scratch in eight consecutive games and in 13 of Montreal's last 15 games. He doesn't have any fantasy value going forward. Sergei Gonchar will take a seat to make room for Weaver.
Mar 5 - 8:44 PM

Mike Weaver is expected to be a healthy scratch for the seventh straight game Monday versus the Sharks.

Weaver has not been much of a factor for the Canadiens this year having skated in only 30 games this season and just four since the new year arrived. He has four assists and six penalty minutes over the year and has no fantasy value.
Mar 2 - 9:00 PM

Mike Weaver will be scratched for his sixth straight game on Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Unfortunately, the veteran defender Weaver has played in just seven games since the end of November. Through 30 games this season, he has four points, 35 hits, and 60 blocks.
Feb 28 - 6:23 PM

Mike Weaver will be scratched versus the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Through a combination of scratches and injuries, Weaver has played in just seven games since American Thanksgiving. Though two of those games have come in the last week, he has just 30 for the season with four points, 35 hits, 60 blocks to show for his efforts.
Feb 21 - 6:11 PM

Tom Gilbert will tag in for Mike Weaver as Montreal takes Florida on Thursday night.

Through 53 games this season, Gilbert's biggest fantasy asset is easily his 103 blocks this season. So if you're in a need of a steady supply, he has 18 over his last 10 games.
Feb 19 - 7:13 PM

Mike Weaver will be in the press box Wednesday night when the Canadiens visit the Senators.

Weaver has not been able to tally a goal in 30 games played this year and has just four assists to show for, so Montreal head coach Michel Therrien will elect to dress Greg Pateryn Wednesday night. Weaver has skated in three games in the month of February this season and has no fantasy value.
Feb 18 - 5:07 PM

Mike Weaver and Manny Malhotra will continue to sit out Thursday night against the Edmonton Oilers.

Neither has played since Feb. 1st against Arizona, severely diminishing whatever modicum of fantasy value either has been able to put together this season. Until they can get back into the lineup consistently, you should look elsewhere for depth production.
Feb 12 - 7:07 PM

Mike Weaver and Manny Malhotra will be scratched against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

Weaver has played just 28 games this season, and only five times since Dec. 1st, 2014 because of a combination of injuries and ineffective play. Malhotra has just one point this season in 46 games. With such pitiful stats, neither can be advised for your fantasy squad.
Feb 10 - 7:10 PM

Mike Weaver and Manny Malhotra will be scratched against the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

In 74 combined games, these two veterans have just five assists between them. Whether that's ineffective play or heavy defensive zone starts, it certainly amounts to not being viable options for fantasy purposes.
Feb 3 - 7:25 PM

Mike Weaver and Gabriel Dumont will both be healthy scratches in Thursday's game against the New York Rangers.

Weaver was acquired at the trade deadline last year, and he was a regular defenseman then. This year, he hasn't been able to crack the Habs' lineup too often. Dumont was called up from the minors earlier this week. He was called up because P.A. Parenteau (concussion) isn't available.
Jan 29 - 7:06 PM

Mike Weaver will return to Montreal's rearguard on Saturday night against the New York Islanders.

Weaver hasn't played since Dec. 6th, a span of 14 games, due to a concussion. But now he's back and on the third defensive unit with Alexei Emelin. He may not be a scoring threat, but in 26 games Weaver did rack up 29 hits and 52 blocks.
Jan 17 - 5:47 PM

Mike Weaver will continue to be held out of the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jackets.

There was a chance Weaver was going to replace Alexei Emelin on the blue line but head coach, Michel Therrien elected to keep the same set of defense Wednesday. Weaver hasn't played in a game since December 6th and has four assists in 26 games this year. Look for him to get back in action soon though.
Jan 14 - 7:10 PM

Mike Weaver will continue to sit as he works his way back from a concussion.

Weaver hasn't played since December 6th, and it doesn't seem as though he'll be playing again any time soon. Which may be telling of what the Habs think of Bryan Allen.
Jan 6 - 7:02 PM

Mike Weaver, Bryan Allen, and Michael Bournival will all sit against the Penguins on Saturday night.

Through a mixture of ineffective play and time away from the ice, none of these three have any fantasy value right now.
Jan 3 - 6:34 PM
