The Upper Canadien

A quick note on Cammalleri

Did he say anything out of line? The team has been terrible. Much worse since the coaching change. Any chance of the playoffs is fading fast. Montreal this year has become the hockey equivalent of People Magazine. The tiniest comment from anyone of significance is blown way out of proportion.

Lighten up, people. Cammalleri wants to win just as much as anybody else, if not more. You’ve seen what the guy does in the playoffs, in big games, and through injuries. There is a serious management problem here and it has yet to be addressed.

A sidenote: Yannick Weber made much more controversial comments today about being better than the guys on the ice in recent games - and it goes virtually unreported. That says one of two things: a) the French media has it out for Mike Cammalleri, or b) Yannick Weber is insignificant in the grand scheme that is the Montreal Canadiens. I think it’s a lot more a than b, but that’s debatable.

Now, Boston, let’s see what ya got.

How has the media not jumped all over Cammalleri for not giving his response in French?

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.
