Last Word on the Habs Pod - Episode 11 (Are the Montreal Canadiens Mediocre?)
Be sure to follow @LWOS_Habs for Habs news, commentary, and analysis.
This week we talked losses to the St. Louis Blues, the Calgary Flames, and the blow out loss to the Edmonton Oilers. We considered the benefits of mediocrity, Claude Julien's approach in OT, and lamented the Alex Galchenyuk situation. This week we were joined by John Fischer, founder and managing editor of the All About the Jersey at SB Nation, to talk the New Jersey Devils. We revisited our rebuild talk and Marc Bergevin's challenges. Finally, we concluded by looking at the week ahead. This includes Thursday nights game against the high flying New Jersey Devils. The Habs start an extended road trip on Saturday against the struggling Ottawa Senators.
