The Upper Canadien

And with Carolina’s victory over the Kings…

As of 9:26 EST, the Montreal Canadiens are alone in the basement of the Eastern Conference.

It’s dark down here. And lonely.

But seriously, how could anything go worse this year? A lost season, indeed. Will it be enough to cost jobs/cause trades in the near future? I have to believe it does.

There’s bad, and then there is this. Woe, Montreal.

If it has to be… it has to be. So we might as well crap the bed and get it over with. I’d love it if we could (dare we dream) have a true number one center with size and skill…

It’s been a long time coming so if we’re not going to make the playoffs, we might as well tank like there’s no tomorrow.

It’s embarrassing, but not winning a Cup for 18 years and counting… that’s much worse. Let’s put that to an end, one way or another. If the Pens can still have fans after losing badly enough to land the likes of Malkin, Staal and Fleury… or the Hawks with Kane, Toews, Keith and Seabrook, then surely we can suffer a season of misery or two to get equivalent talent.

It’s time. We’ll still win our next cup before the Leafs…

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.
