Last Word on Habs Pod – Episode 17 (Tomas Plekanec Traded During This Pod!)
Be sure to follow @LWOS_Habs for Habs news, commentary, and analysis.
This week Connor and Johannes take one final look at the NHL trade deadline. They discuss what the Habs could be up to. Before all the speculation, however, our hosts discuss a forgettable week for the Habs that saw them lose three of four (but picking up two loser points). Our hosts then discuss the CBC report that Max Pacioretty has asked the Canadiens to be moved out of town.
Connor and Johannes also discuss the Rick Nash trade to Boston and what that could mean for a potential Pacioretty trade. Our hosts then move off the Canadiens and discuss the trade deadline as a whole.
Connor is joined (from Saturday afternoon) by Spector’s Hockey creator Lyle Richardson to talk all things trade deadline. Be sure to listen all the way through as our hosts break a trade live on the podcast involving the Montreal Canadiens (guess which one!).
All this and Johannes proves his worth as a third line center with clutch scoring, maybe Marc Bergevin should reach out?
