The Upper Canadien

If Montreal’s season was a Simpsons episode…

It’s “Who Shot Mr. Burns?,” and they’ve been declared dead. Sure, they could be upgraded to alive at another hospital, a la Señor Burns - but this game was horrible.

Pathetic effort. Pathetic.

It was David Desharnais, Erik Cole, Max Pacioretty, and Carey Price versus the Buffalo Sabres.

Where was Tomas Plekanec? Rene Bourque? Scott “4 days away from a goalless year” Gomez?

This team needs to wake up. I suspect more roster players will be dealt. A disappointing game from a very, very disappointing team. Not a banner year for fans of the Habs, indeed.

I am perfectly fine with the Habs not winning another title this season. They should share a few of those cups.

So if Montreal is giving up on the year, will a firesale follow? Who do you think will stay and, more to the point, who is available?

Moen, Gill, Kostitsyn, Campoli are the likeliest to go. Many teams, apparently, interested in Moen - but of course he’s injured now.

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.
