Last Word On Habs Pod – Episode 14 (Trade Deadline and Beyond)
Be sure to follow @LWOS_Habs for Habs news, commentary, and analysis.
Fresh off their own All-Star break, Connor and Johannes discuss their feelings on the NHL All-Star game and the NHL schedule. They look ahead to the NHL trade deadline and what the Habs should do, specifically Max Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec. Our hosts then talk about Marc Bergevin and what an honest Bergevin press conference might sound like. They discuss the need for a VP of Hockey Ops and who the Habs should (or should not) look at to fill the role. They take a look back at the Habs week that was and the Habs week to come. Saturday night P.K. Subban returns to the Bell Centre, how might the fans react his second time through. In the wake of Colton Parayko‘s hit on Paul Byron, where is the Habs Character?
The podcast wraps up with Connor and Johannes outlining three things they want to see from the Habs for the rest of the season. Then they give their fearless (and very wrong) Super Bowl predictions. Also, hear what is probably on the top of every four-year-old boy’s bucket list.
Be sure to listen in!
