Last Word on Habs Pod: Montreal Canadiens at the Break

This week, the guys take stock of the Habs at their All-Star Break bye week. The Habs have been an up and down team all year which has landed them outside the playoffs. The guys debate if the Habs have what it takes to make it to the dance. They also debate if that would be a good thing.

The guys then dig in on the long term plans for the Habs. They discuss Marc Bergevin's plan and how likely it is to succeed. Connor thinks that Bergevin is in two lanes which will not lead to much success. Talk then shifts to the draft as Johannes believes the Habs need to make a splash in front of their fans.

The guys then talk about the impact of Ilya Kovalchuk on the team. The Russian sniper has revived his career with the Habs and the guys talk about what the Habs should do with him long term.

All this and winners and losers, the All-Star Game, the week ahead, the trade deadline and much more!

Tune in!

The guys are back in the new year with lots to talk about. There has been lots of news since Alex and Chace last recorded so they dive into all of it. First, they look at how many NHL Coaches have been fired and break down each one. Discussing what it means for the future of each team and whether it was a good or bad move. They try and dive into what affects coaching really has and have a discussion about how many NHL Coaches truly move the needle for a team.

After that, they look at the Nikolas Backstrom, Ilya Kovalchuk, Justin Williams, and Rasmus Andersson signings. The guys discuss each one and the good or bad about them.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Sony Skips E3 2020, Our Favorite Nintendo Consoles - Video Games 2 the MAX #210

On this episode, Sean Garmer, Marc Morrison, and Jens Dietrich begin by discussing games they are playing/reviewing beginning with Marc talking about his experience with the first few hours of Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. While Jens loves revisiting Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore and Sean adores Vertex Pop's latest Super Crush KO.

After that, they get into the news of the week and there's quite a bit.

Nintendo and Masahiro Sakurai revealed Byleth as the final Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Pass character. Considering there are two huge Fire Emblem: Three Houses fans on the panel, their opinions on the inclusion is much more celebratory than some others out there.

They also discuss the big game delays including Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy VII Remake. Sony skips E3 for the second year in a row and the ESA responds. Does Sony really need E3 at this point? And is in E3 headed in the right direction?

Not to mention, Horizon: Zero Dawn is headed to PC and perhaps other Sony first party games may join it on Steam and Epic Games store in the future. Is this the end of console exclusives? Or just another avenue for Sony to get more people playing their games? (We tend to agree on the second option.)

Finally, the trio gush about their favorite Nintendo consoles, discussing their first ones, the games that brought them the most joy, and too much Virtual Boy talk as well.
