The Upper Canadien


Canadiens fans wait patiently as Jaromir Jagr, apparently, moves closer to his decision. Will it be Pittsburgh, Detroit - or Montreal? And if not Jagr, who else might the Habs go after to,or row during the frenzy?

I’ll be posting my reactions after the ball drops at noon. My off-season post gave some idea of what I would be were I in charge. Size, grit and scoring are the three things the Canadiens need more of. Let’s see what Mr. Gauthier can do.

A slight side note: I’m on vacation at the moment, so my Internet access is mor challenged than it normally is. However, I continue to follow the UFA developments and look forward to seeing what unfolds. I actually spent yesterday South on Montreal and had the privilege of visiting the Pat Burns Arena site. It is coming along nicely and I will try to post some pictures in the coming days.

Until then: what will PG do? Only 24 hours to go! And perhaps less for M. Jagr.

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.
