The Upper Canadien

The end of an era tonight, with the last regular season Habs-Leafs game ever on CBC's Hockey NIght in Canada as we know it. I don't have much to add - clearly, it is a huge game for both teams - but I will opine on one point. Based on the practice lines, Alex Galchenyuk appears to be ready to slide in as a centre between Brian Gionta and Rene Bourque. My two cents: it's about time. If Ryan Johansen can play centre in the NHL at an early age, so can Galchenyuk.
He may be the most talented player the Canadiens have, and now he'll get a chance to show us what he can do. I'm happy to see he's probably going to play with Gionta and Bourque, as these veterans should reinforce Galchenyuk and provide some grit to go with his soft hands. The Leafs aren't an overly good defensive team. Let's see what Alex Galchenyuk can do.
7 pm. CBC. Enjoy it, folks.

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.
