The Upper Canadien

Habs bid adieu

Today was locker cleaning time in Montreal. No Expos anymore, so it’s going to be a long summer of discontent for Canadiens fans. However, it should be peppered with excitement - new General Manager, new coaching staff, and who knows what free agency will bring.

In the meantime, the playoffs, and perhaps more central to Habs fans, a little thing called the draft lottery. Tomorrow night the balls drop, and we’ll see where Montreal ends up. Grigorenko? Forsberg? Yakupov? Dare I dream?

Once the order is determined, I’ll be writing on who I think the Habs should grab. Luckily for them, the first five picks this year appear to be quality players. Who knows - perhaps they’ll be able to draft someone that can play next season?

A guy can dream, right? Wait, I guess that’s IF there’s a season. That’s a whole other topic entirely.

About The Upper Canadien

The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.

I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
