Habs Rapid Fire: The First 51

Ah, the bye week… a time for a little bit of reflection, a little bit more contemplation, perhaps bit of catching up on the neglected or postponed facets of one’s life and perhaps just a dash of “what the hell am I going to do with myself until February?!”   With the first 51 games […]

Sit Back, Relax, and Watch John Scott

Sit Back, Relax, and Watch John Scott

Oh, and P.K. Subban. Funnily enough, I almost forgot about him, even though he is Montreal’s representative at this weekend’s All-Star Game. As much as I love Subban, my excitement is directed towards John Scott. He’s gone through one of the most hellish type of situations a professional hockey player could go through in a […]

Marc Bergevin and the “John Scott Problem”

Marc Bergevin and the “John Scott Problem”

The 2015-2016 Montreal Canadiens is one for the history books. They began the season by springing forth to a franchise best 9-0-0 start only to come crashing down in dramatic fashion. During one particularly agonizing stretch of hockey, the Habs would go on to lose 16 out of 20 games for the first time since […]

Disaster Deal: Jarred Tinordi Sold Short, John Scott Screwed

Disaster Deal: Jarred Tinordi Sold Short, John Scott Screwed

When the word breaks that a young stud defenceman was dealt for a guy that was set to partake in this year’s All-Star Game, both teams get excited for contrasting reasons… on paper.  This situation, though, is far from paper.  This is a sham and a shame.  Excitement is replaced with frustration, joy with fury […]

All-Snub Game?

All-Snub Game?

All-Star Game they said. All the stars will be there, they said. They lied. As per usual for the All-Star Game, obvious players will be snubbed. Is there a basis for selecting players? Well surely you can’t have an All-Star game unless all 30 NHL teams are represented right? Wrong. If this weekend is to […]
