The Upper Canadien

Quiet days

These are the quietest days of the year for hockey, and the Montreal Canadiens are no exception. I got nothing. Nada.

Except the news today, via Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette, that neither Brent Sopel or James Wisniewski received a phone call from the Habs after the season. Not even a thank you.

Sopel, as you have probably read, recently signed in Russia. Wisniewski is ready to ply his trade as a Blue Jacket.

But no contact from the Habs at all?

That’s the sort of conduct other players hear about. Even if the Canadiens had no interest, you’d think they could have had the courtesy to make a phone call.

But no, apparently PIerre Gauthier is as quiet with his players as he is with the media. And that’s to say, he’s pretty darn quiet. Quiet as a mouse.

So not much to talk about. Except the fact that the Canadiens, apparently, don’t do much talking.

Maybe that’s why it’s so quiet?

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.
