Last Word on Habs Pod – Episode 16 (Do You Trust Marc Bergevin?)
Be sure to follow @LWOS_Habs for Habs news, commentary, and analysis.
On episode 16 of the Last Word on Habs pod, Connor and Johannes discuss the Habs great game in a losing effort against Nashville. Brendan Gallagher‘s post-game comments gave our hosts something new to discuss. The Habs followed up (arguably) their best performance of the season with two duds against Colorado and Arizona (not Phoenix).
Marc Bergevin’s abilities as a general manager are (again) discussed at length by our hosts. Is his job in jeopardy? Should he be making trades at the deadline? Can he clean up his mess?
Our hosts are joined this week by The Hockey Writers Ryan Szporer to discuss all things Habs. Szporer highlights several reasons for the Habs abysmal season and lays them all at the feet of Marc Bergevin.
All this and much, much more! Tune in!
