Last Word on Habs Pod – Episode 12 (Out Of Hibernation)
Be sure to follow @LWOS_Habs for Habs news, commentary, and analysis.
This week Connor and Johannes talk about the Habs shootout win against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the shootout loss to the Boston Bruins and if these results even matter. Max Pacioretty sees to have found his scoring touch, scoring in three straight games, but is it too late to save the Canadiens season? With no guest this week, our faithful hosts discuss what the Canadiens should do with the rest of the season. After playing Tampa twice, do the Habs regret making the Drouin for Sergachev trade? Max Pacioretty has been involved in trade rumors lately, should the Habs pull the trigger? The guys try to figure out what the next NHL trends might be and also play Habs GM. Marc Bergevin‘s January 7th press conference comes up a bit and they also discuss Connor’s article, The Montreal Canadiens are in No Mans Land. Finally, they look to settle the age-old question, how long into a new year can you still say “Happy New Year”.
