The Upper Canadien

The leaders of Canada’s national parties, or two of them anyhow, are asking the media consortium that sets such things to move Thursday night’s debate, the second of only two. Why? Because it conflicts with the first game of the Montreal Canadiens-Boston Bruins first round series.
Now, some pundits are arguing that the NHL should have scheduled the playoffs around the debate. A fair argument, but, it’s also fair to point out that the NHL set the start of the NHL playoffs last June. So, really, wasn’t this debate about the debate an inevitable one?
Only in Canada.

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.
