The Upper Canadien

That’s all, folks

It was a hell of a series. Carey Price showed us what he can do. PK Subban is the real deal. Mike Cammalleri is Mr. Clutch, and he definitely deserves a letter.

Scott Gomez may have played his last game as a Montreal Canadien - they just need to figure out where to send him.

How much will this roster change?

Well, they’ve got a good young nucleus. But I have to figure Gomez, Brent Sopel, Paul Mara, Benoit Pouliot, and Jeff Halpern have played their last games in Montreal red.

In a few days, I’ll post further thoughts on the series, performances, coaching, refereeing (which played far too large a role), and the Habs roster going forward.

Until then, some much needed rest and perhaps a little mourning.

My genuine impression, however: that may be the most evenly matched playoff series I have ever watched.

I don’t see any team wanting to take on the Gomez contract. Do you think they’ll buy him out?

Good series, dude! So close!

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.
