A busy work day means a mailed-in Game Blog. There are so many interesting things to consider about this season that I’m sure we’ll continue to look at as this season winds down.
The ever-excellent Eric Engels gets way ahead of himself asking who the Habs might target in Free Agency. In my opinion its going to be hard to convince any Free Agents of note to join a lottery-pick team. That said, he does have a couple interesting options listed such as Cory Sarich and Brad Stuart. These are guys who aren’t the types who would be on the top of your list, but who ultimately could have the biggest impact in terms of allowing your other players who be more effective.
I’m loathe to link to hockeybuzz.. let alone do it twice.. but Steven Hindle has done a very good job of looking at the Canadiens draft picture. Its a topic that will become issue #1 as the season winds down. Read his piece – you won’t regret it.
Dave Stubbs gives us the low down on Blake “Baby Boom” Geoffrion’s debut in Montreal tonight. How loud do you think that crowd will be if he is able to pot one? Kind of gives you chills even thinking about it.
Justin Bourne writes for an incredible blog over at the Score called Backhand Shelf. I love his insight into the game as a guy who played extensively in the lower levels of hockey and knows intimately of the struggles that a hockey player goes through trying to get to the NHL. As someone who’s career peaked with 16 games in the AHL I can tell you this guy knows all about the grind of hockey and gives you details you never thought about from a player’s perspective. His piece about the Toronto Maple Leafs and their current losing streak is entirely applicable to the Habs. Read it. Get Smarter. You’re Welcome.
Alright, back to work. Go Habs Go!!!
