An Apology to Marc Bergevin

Hello Marc, It has been a long time since I wrote to you; and it was not a message of good intent. In late June of 2016, I lambasted you and your staff for moves that were then, and can still be viewed now as poor examples of asset management. This previous letter was formed […]

Though the organization didn’t reach their ultimate goal, there’s plenty of positives to take away from this edition of the Canadiens and the exclamation point came courtesy of […]
