Sergei Gonchar and Mike Weaver will be healthy scratches in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Neither player has been inserted into a playoff game in 2015. The Canadiens played well in game one, but they only managed to beat Ben Bishop once. It's a must-win for Montreal as they can't afford to lose both games on home ice. They will go with Subban, Markov, Petry, Gilbert, Pateryn and Emelin on defense. May 3 - 4:38 PM

Sergei Gonchar and Mike Weaver will continue to sit in the press box as their Montreal Canadiens take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game One on Friday night.

Gonchar and Weaver have been stapled to the press box for the majority of the season in 2015, and there isn't any sign of that changing any time soon.

Sergei Gonchar didn't attend practice Wednesday because of family reasons.

He hasn't been in the lineup since Apr. 3 and he skated in 48 games with the Canadiens during the regular season. Gonchar also didn't get any playing time in the first round of the postseason.
Apr 29 - 5:20 PM

Coach Therrien has announced that there will not be any lineup changes in Game Three for Montreal on Sunday night against Ottawa.

Montreal leads the series 2-0, so there's no point in trying to fix what ain't broke. This means that defensemen Sergei Gonchar, Greg Pateryn, Mike Weaver and forward Manny Malhotra will be healthy scratches once again.
Apr 19 - 5:51 PM

Defensemen Sergei Gonchar, Greg Pateryn, Mike Weaver and forward Manny Malhotra will be healthy scratches for Game Two against the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

Suffice it to say, that Gonchar may have the most potential value of the bunch and he's played just once since March 12th. We'd like to give you more details, but the hard truth is that if you don't play, you don't have any value.
Apr 17 - 6:34 PM

Defensemen Sergei Gonchar and Mike Weaver and forward Manny Malhotra will be listed as healthy scratches for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series with the Ottawa Senators.

Gonchar is the most notable name of this trio but has not been seeing much game action with the Canadiens over the last month plus. He’s only skated in one game since March 12th and only scored one goal with 13 assists in 48 games overall this season. Weaver and Malhotra both offer limited fantasy potential and shouldn’t be carried on anyone’s daily team.
Apr 15 - 7:16 PM

Sergei Gonchar, Greg Pateryn, Manny Maholtra, and Mike Weaver will each be scratched from Saturday's season finale against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Unfortunately, none of these four players were able to squeeze out much fantasy value this season. This was in large part due to their inability to stay in the lineup. Gonchar, perhaps the most talented of the bunch, for example, has played just once since March 12th and saw just 45 total games with Montreal.

Sergei Gonchar, Manny Maholtra, Greg Pateryn and Mike Weaver will be healthy scratches in Thursday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Brian Flynn will take Max Pacioretty (upper-body) spot in the lineup, but that is the only change they will make. Gonchar would normally have a little bit of fantasy upside because he usually sees time on the power play but the other three players aren't point-producers.
Apr 9 - 6:58 PM

Sergei Gonchar, Mike Weaver, and Greg Pateryn were held out of Sunday's tilt with the Florida Panthers.

While Weaver and Pateryn have seen just 46 combined games this season, Gonchar has played just once since March 12th. Gonchar made his name as an offensive catalyst, but it appears that none of these three defenders figure into Coach Therrien's blue line.

Apr 5 - 5:25 PM

Canadiens defensemen Sergei Gonchar and Mike Weaver will remain healthy scratches Monday night versus Tampa Bay.

Gonchar hasn’t played in a game since March 12 and has one goal and 12 assists in 47 games played this season. Weaver has played in just one game since February 16th and has no goals and four assists in 31 games overall this season. Neither defenseman should be rostered in fantasy leagues.
Mar 30 - 6:03 PM

Sergei Gonchar and Mike Weaver will be scratched against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.

This will be Gonchar's sixth straight game in the stands. This comes after he had produced a dozen points, 42 hits, and 67 blocks through 44 games with the Canadiens. Weaver meanwhile has seen just five games since the first week of December, and has no fantasy value.
Mar 24 - 7:39 PM

Sergei Gonchar will once again sit in the pressbox.

He will not dress Saturday night against the Sharks and will be sitting beside Mike Weaver, Brian Flynn and Nathan Beaulieu. The return to action of Alexei Emelin has squeezed both Gonchar and Weaver out of the Habs' lineup.
Mar 21 - 11:31 AM

Defensemen Sergei Gonchar and Mike Weaver and forward Manny Malhotra will all be healthy scratches Monday night versus Tampa Bay.

With Alexei Emelin returning to the Canadiens blue line, both Gonchar and Weaver will sit out on the blue line. Gonchar will sit out a second consecutive game and has just one goal and 13 points in 47 games played this year. Weaver will miss his fourth straight game and has four assists in 31 games. Malhotra is considered a depth forward for the Canadiens and has not played since March 2nd. The trio offers zero fantasy value.
Mar 16 - 7:36 PM

Sergei Gonchar and Mike Weaver will be scratched against the NY Islanders on Saturday night.

Gonchar has had a successful time with Montreal through his first 44 games, scoring 12 points, 42 hits, and 67 blocks thus far. While Weaver continues to be a quality defensive defenseman, he's played in just eight of his 31 games this season in 2015. Indicating he does not have a place on Coach Therrien's blue line.

Mar 14 - 6:10 PM

Sergei Gonchar will be back in the Canadiens' lineup on Saturday.

Gonchar got Thursday's game off because it was Montreal's third contest in four days. With the 40-year-old blueliner dressing, Mike Weaver is expected to be a healthy scratch.
