Last Word on Habs Pod: Montreal Canadiens Big Push

The guys are back! After a few weeks off Connor and Johannes are back to dig into the Habs since the All-Star break. There is plenty to talk about with the Habs on a roll and pushing towards the playoffs.

The guys quickly go over the last two weeks of Habs games. The team has played well, going 7-3 in their last 10 to vault themselves (somewhat) back into the playoff picture. The guys discuss if this recent push is enough to actually excited about the possibility of the playoffs.

Johannes then drops three questions on Connor. First, he asks if the Habs were wise to leak that Jeff Petry and Tomas Tatar are not available at the deadline. The second question is if the Habs should sign Tatar or Max Domi. Finally, Johannes asks about a high-level executive suggesting Cole Caufield and Alexander Romanov will be on the Canadiens roster next year. It sparks some interesting debate and answers.

All this and winners and losers, Habs development, trade deadline, the schedule ahead and much more.

TUNE IN!
