Getting ready for draft day

With the draft and free agency in the same week, it almost feels like Christmas and Easter in a 6 day period. This is going to be a good week for hockey fans. With regards to what the Canadiens will/should do, you know my feelings on Lecavalier. They should try to net a goaltender in the draft, as it is a weak point in the organization at this point - Carey Price can't play forever - and I'd like to see the Habs pick Jordan Subban with their late 3rd rounder if he's still available. He may only be 5'8'', but he's clearly talented and has room to grow.

Beyond that, I'm no prospect expert, but this year appears to be a strong one for the Q. It would be great to see the Habs trade up and get a marquee player from their backyard, but I doubt we see that. I also doubt we see any huge moves by GM Marc Bergevin, but I do get the sense other teams may make a lot of noise. Regardless, it's a good day to sit back, relax, and enjoy the fun that is the NHL off-season. 

Oh, and I really hope the Habs sign Lecavalier. But you knew that already, didn't you?

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.
