Last Word on Habs Pod: Montreal Canadiens at the Break
This week, the guys take stock of the Habs at their All-Star Break bye week. The Habs have been an up and down team all year which has landed them outside the playoffs. The guys debate if the Habs have what it takes to make it to the dance. They also debate if that would be a good thing.
The guys then dig in on the long term plans for the Habs. They discuss Marc Bergevin‘s plan and how likely it is to succeed. Connor thinks that Bergevin is in two lanes which will not lead to much success. Talk then shifts to the draft as Johannes believes the Habs need to make a splash in front of their fans.
The guys then talk about the impact of Ilya Kovalchuk on the team. The Russian sniper has revived his career with the Habs and the guys talk about what the Habs should do with him long term.
All this and winners and losers, the All-Star Game, the week ahead, the trade deadline and much more!
**Programming note, due to some planned travel the guys will not be recording for the next two weeks. Look for the pod to return the week of February 10th.**
