Now What Montreal?

from Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette,

Pick up the phone and bring John Scott to Montreal.

It’ll be like magic. Poof! The PR nightmare vanishes. Poof! Every player in your lineup is three inches taller and twice as strong. Poof! Players stop squeezing their sticks because hey — all the attention is now on the big guy. Poof! Everyone stops ragging on you for that silly Tinordi deal, because you got something in return after all.

Poof! You’ll get a player who is, according to Torrey Mitchell, a great guy to have in the room. Poof! You might change the entire team dynamic and it won’t cost you a cent.

Right now, the Habs are facing a Tuesday night date in Philadelphia. It’s not like the old days, when a game at the Spectrum was like playing the lions in their den, but the Flyers are still big and tough. It’s a game you desperately need to win.
