Kotkaniemi, The Hurricane, and The Torch
By Guido | |
The 18-year-old smiling kid who was once a beacon of hope for the Canadiens centre woes is smiling bigger than ever now, but not because he’s trying to carry a historic torch that we know was too heavy for him, but because he’s got a pocket full of (short-term) cash and a feeling that he got the upper hand on his former employer, albeit by participating in childish behaviour with an owner in Dundon who could just be using him for his own entertainment.
HABS Roll The Dice on Expansion
By Guido | |
"If the HABS do lose Price ($10.5) to the draft and Weber to Long Term Injury Reserve ($7.8) and they add that to their current $14 million, that gives them $32.3 million. Surely, with or without that additional space the Canadiens are poised to make some moves.."
Time To Burn It Down
By Guido | |
For the Canadiens, The Torch may have been passed from failing hands, but for now, unfortunately, to failing hands.
Carey Price Can’t Score
By Guido | |
The only thing the HABS had going for them was Carey Price and the transition pass up ice that died on the boards or was broken up by the Leafs.
In The Penalty Box
By Guido | |
On the perimeter a score like 5-1 suggests a dominant win, or that’s what the pendulum-fans will have you believe on social media. When you pick this game apart though, the score wasn’t reflective of all the micro moments that contributed to it.
Experience Over Youth

If your boss gets you a box of tools and you don’t use it and fail, you’re going to have a different conversation than if you did use it and failed.
