Episode 97 - Who is at Fault?

2/18/2020
We divided this episode into three parts in order to discuss who in this front office is responsible for the state of the Habs. Is the problem one of coaching? The first segment is all about how much of the blame can be laid at Claude Julien's feet. The general consensus is that it is a problem of management, so in the second segment we break down the mistakes of Marc Bergevin's tenure. In our final segment we discuss Geoff Molson's decision-making as well. We hope you find these rants as...

Episode 96 - Putting the "L" in Montreal

2/17/2020

The hosts will discuss those games, then launch into a long talk about the Canadiens letting Jonathan Drouin play injured and why that was an awful idea. Finally, they'll also take a look at Dean Morton's actions towards Brendan Gallagher on Saturday night, and why they were extremely unprofessional for an NHL official.

Episode 94 - Weber-Gate

2/13/2020

Episode 92 - I Danault Anymore

2/11/2020
The Canadiens played against Arizona on Monday, and lost in dumb fashion so Scott and Laura will break all of that down. The team also lost Phillip Danault in game to a scary looking puck to the face, adding him to an injured list that already features Shea Weber, so how exactly can the team overcome this with the Bruins game looming? Finally, the Wild traded Jason Zucker to the Penguins, is the return what the Canadiens should be looking for in a trade for Tomas Tatar? Learn more about your...

Episode 91 - One Shot, One Kilya

2/10/2020
The Canadiens are refusing to give up on trying to make the playoffs this year, so we discuss their game against the Leafs this past weekend and how that affects both teams.

Scott discusses his Ilya Kovalchuk feelings, and we preview tonight's game against the Arizona Coyotes. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Ilya Kovalchuk silenced the crowd with his shootout goal, and Habs fans want to keep him in Montreal. Will the Habs be able to convince him to re-sign this summer? The defensive coverage is one of the elements of this team that is letting them down every night, so maybe it's time to discuss some player or staffing changes that need to be made to improve things for...
