Kirby Dach's resolution is to show in 2024 that he can still be a potential point per game scorer in the near future. He played just 23 games in 2023 but had nine goals and 17 points in that time. He will miss the entire 2022-23 season except for the first two games, but will be focused on coming back in October of 2024 and showing he can be an impact top six center for the Canadiens.

Christian Dvorak's resolution is to finally get comfortable playing in Montreal. He had a decent first season with the Canadiens scoring 33 points in 56 games, but struggled with injuries and inconsistency since he arrived. He has just three goals and seven points in 24 games this season and hasn't developed chemistry with anyone, hasn't gone on a lengthy hot streak and just doesn't have a defined role in his third season with the team. He needs to get comfortable and confident in 2024.

Jake Evans resolution is to hire personal security so Jesse Ylonen can't steal his jersey.

Sean Monahan's resolution is to stay healthy long enough to be traded for a first round pick. Hey, that is kind of selfish I suppose as a Habs fan, but Monahan deserves to be healthy first of all and also deserves to be on a team with a legit chance of a Stanley Cup chase.

Nick Suzuki's resolution is to watch as much tape from early in Patrice Bergeron's career as possible. We can't expect Suzuki to become the next Bergeron, but Suzuki needs to become an excellent two-way center. No one did that better than Bergeron so studying his game from early on and picking up as many habits and tidbits as possible would be a great way to spend 2023 for the Canadiens captain.
