Last Word on Habs Pod – Episode 20 Montreal Canadiens Season Wrap-Up
Be sure to follow @LWOS_Habs for Habs news, commentary, and analysis.
Connor and Johannes return for the season finale of the Last Word on Habs Pod. This episode, our hosts discuss and dissect the end of season press conference held by Marc Bergevin and Geoff Molson. Johannes wonders if Molson’s more prominent role in the press conference means Bergevin is on his last life as Habs general manager. Connor thinks the Habs ‘attitude’ problem starts at the top.
Then our hosts turn to more introspective questions, such as what was it like covering the Montreal Canadiens during such a down season. Then Connor and Johannes figure out how likely a John Tavares signing in Montreal is. Johannes is optimistic (at least more so than Connor) about Tavares. What is the worst Habs team either host remembers watching? Will Max Pacioretty still be on the Canadiens come October? Can Bergevin turn it around?
All this and Johannes’ travel plans, a quick Playoff preview and much more!
As this is the season finale of the Last Word on Habs Pod, both Johannes and Connor would like to thank our listeners (loyal and casual) for tuning in. With the Habs out of the playoffs, the pod will be on hiatus, most likely until after the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Please be assured that The Pod will be coming back! To keep up-to-date with Connor and Johannes’ opinions and views (and when the Pod will be back) be sure to follow them on twitter (see the bottom of the article for their handles).
