The guys let off some steam in this episode as they broke down the terrible start to the season. They each explained how the poor start as well as all the drama in the sport lately was affecting them and then tried to make sense of it all. They touched on Bergevin, the coaching staff and debated whether this version of the Habs was still fit for purpose. They each outlined what a successful season would look like at this point and ended on a positive note by talking about their collective passion; food. It’s fright night in Habs land.
It’s time to drop the puck and the guys teed up the new season by talking about the breaking news of the day, Nick Suzuki’s blockbuster deal. They discussed whether Ryan Poehling starting with the big club was the right move and whether the Habs prospect pool has thinned out. They also touched on Carey Price’s situation and why it is so important and meaningful. Last but not least, they gave their thoughts on why Bergevin still hasn’t signed a new deal. It’s a packed episode to start the new season; don’t miss it!
In this very special episode, Mike goes one-on-one with AJ Galante. AJ is proud native of Danbury, CT where he owns and operates Champs Boxing Club and resides with his family. Both AJ and his family recently introduced themselves to the world on the Netflix special “Untold: Crime and Penalties” that tells the story of a high school senior (AJ) becoming the President and General Manager of the UHL’s Danbury Trashers, one of hockey’s most notorious teams to ever hit the ice. We get a little behind the scenes of the Netflix doc, get to know the man behind it all, who Jimmy Galante is as a father and Mike puts AJ’s WWE, hockey and pizza knowledge to the test in one of the most fun rapid fire rounds we’ve ever had!
This week, the boys spent time discussing Ryan Poehling and the centre position for the 2021-22 season along with what they think are major positives and if anything is missing from the potential opening night line-up. They also took the time discuss Robin Lehner's social media statements and what it means to them. And of course, Mike, John and Mo had to provide their own breakdowns of 'The Many Saints of Newark' movie that hit the big screen this weekend.
The boys are back with a massive 150th episode. The potentially hectic year ahead for Nick Suzuki, the amount of band-aids next to names on the training camp roster, Jack Eichel being stripped of the 'C', Jonathan Drouin opening up about his recent struggles off the ice and of course, our main event this week has us welcoming back the king of the 44's, the Alaskan Assassin, Nate Thompson for a fun "rapid fire" style chat to dig deep and find out the important things: the best advice he's ever received from a peer in hockey, what part of his game he's always trying to improve, what's different about the fresh batches of salmon he catches in Alaska and his RIDICULOUS McDonald's order.
With rookie camp underway and the start of the season around the corner, the guys took advantage of the calm before the storm to discuss a range of topics. They talked about Carey Price’s recent interview with Dave Stubbs and how he really felt about the expansion draft. They debated whether Bergevin would make any more moves and whether the Habs are a better team this season, particularly down the middle. They also revisited the loss of Joel Bouchard and discussed Stéphane Waite’s recent comments about Danault. Don’t forget to download and subscribe!
The boys are back with an emotional 148th episode that covers everything from the Carolina Hurricane's offer sheet to Jesperi Kotkaniemi to the Habs passing on matching to what the team currently looks now. They also went off on a few topics including the arrival of Christian Dvorak, the fact that draft picks are simply assets and who's out to steal somebody's job during the fast approaching Habs training camp.
In the dead of summer and much of the drama and fireworks off free agency behind us, the boys take to social media and answer some really fun, off-beat and semi controversial questions about the Habs, the podcast and themselves. They build their Mt. Rushmore of both all-time and current Canadiens players, who some of their most memorable guests were, some behind the scenes stories about their favourite guests and somehow get on Johnny Depp's $2M a month spending and where they would locate their four dream homes. Unplanned, unscripted and always a blast!
Hoffman, Savard, Perreault in, Danault and Perry out. Armia and Lehkonen re-sign. Paul Byron will miss five months. Alex Burrows signed a three year extension and there's a new goalie coach in town. We ask ourselves if the Habs are better now than they were last year and we talk about what the remaining free agents may mean to Montreal and if the shopping is over and done with for now.
In an emotionally charged episode, the boys don't hold back voicing their opinions on the recent events of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft. They tried making sense of what the organization was thinking in a completely avoidable situation and gave their takes on how all of this is playing out across the fan base and media. They also broke down the Carey Price news along with the return of John to the show, who did not disappoint!
