AUGUST 26, 2021 – Weird things happen in Hockey. The sad prevailing philosophy of the great franchise known as the Montreal Canadians is to “make the playoffs”. Anything can happen.

July 8, 2021 – What a wild ride this season has been. There’s been some good, but more bad ultimately. The Free Agent pick ups worked out really well. Sadly, some of those character guys that GM Marc Bergevin built this time around kinda punked out. This edition of the Habs reminds me of the […]

FEBRUARY 24, 2021 – When you’ve watched and worked in hockey as long as yours truly has you develop instincts. My instinct since very early of Carey Price’s career is that he would never win in Montreal. Carey is a great goalie, but to win in Montreal you need to either not appear to care […]

Right now Hab fans have to be wondering about owner Geoff Molson? Either he’s calling the shots and Bergy is a puppet, or he’s simply letting a really really really bad GM ruin a legendary franchise.
