Last Word on Habs Pod: Promising Start

For the second episode of the season, our hosts examine the Canadiens promising start. The Habs have looked exciting and fast through tow games, but is their style of play sustainable for 82 games?

Johannes and Connor give their winners and loser for the week. Both hosts have the same loser and Connor cheats for his first ever winner.

The Karl Alzner situation is then discussed. Connor and Johannes both agree the Alzner has not played well enough to earn a roster spot, despite his salary. Johannes has a gut feeling that Alzner might draw in for the Habs home opener, while Connor really doesn’t think so.

Habs rookie Jesperi Kotkaniemi has looked pretty good to start the season. Will he play past nine games? Spoilers: YES. Will he with the Habs all season though?

Habs home opener is on Thursday against the Kings, can the Habs keep up their strong play? Only one way to find out!

All this and Canadian Thanksgiving wishes, American Supreme Court lament and Connor discusses who he will be keeping an eye on in Laval.

TUNE IN!!!
