A Big Trade for the Habs

All throughout June, Montreal Canadiens’ General Manager Marc Bergevin has been making headlines with trade news that have kept fans on their feet. Just a few weeks shy of the Shea Weber vs P.K. Subban one-year anniversary, Bergevin strikes again. This time, by acquiring forward Jonathan Drouin. For the fans complaining about the lack of style, flash, and excitement, especially after P.K.'s trade, you will all be well served.

SISTERHOOD OF THE SQUARED CIRCLE: The History of Women’s Wrestling

Pat Laprade joined CJLO 1690AM for a 2-part interview on the June 7th and June 14th editions of Main Event Radio with Ryan Rider. His latest book is entitled “Sisterhood of the Squared Circle: The History of Women’s Wrestling” and is now available wherever books are sold. We discussed the history of ladies wrestling from the earliest days of Billy Wolfe and Mildred Burke to Fabulous Moolah’s stranglehold on the industry in the 1960’s-1980’s to the modern day women’s wrestling revolution.

Everything P.K. Subban!

I swear, I think every article I write for CJLO always ends up being about P.K. Subban! That’s how PK likes it, is it not? Being the center of attention, having the focus on him.

What's Up With the Habs?

April 3rd seems like it was yesterday. On this day, I was sitting fifth row at the BB&T center in Sunrise Florida. The Montréal Canadiens won the game 4-1 and they looked big, strong, and very fast disposing of the Florida Panthers. Maybe because I was in a condo next to the beach, but I did not even watch the remaining five games of the season because I thought to myself, win or lose, we are facing the New York Rangers in the first round and most likely beat them too… in five games!

Are You Ready? - What's New in the Habs World

With the NHL trade deadline behind us, we, the fans, along with the Montreal Canadiens, look forward to the last stretch of the regular season and to the NHL playoffs. It has been a decent season for the Habs, although with a tough month of January and even tougher February. Head coach Michel Therrien lost his job because of this late slump.

Is It Time? - Therrien's Road with the Habs

It always happens sooner or later, every hockey season in Montreal. The panic has set in. As of February 8th, the Montreal Canadiens have lost four games in a row, the latest against the weakest team in the league, the Colorado Avalanche. I'm reluctant to ask the question, because Michel Therrien is the coach I have enjoyed watching the most in the last few years. His interviews and post-game scrums are always funny, win or lose—he is, in my eyes, very entertaining. However, ownership does not care about entertainment, they care about only one thing: a winning record. So, whether it's listening to sports radio or watching the last game's performance, I have to ask myself: is it time?  

Go Stingers Go!

CJLO Sports will be live from Ed Meagher Arena this upcoming Friday, February 3rd when the #10 Concordia Stingers Men's hockey team faces off against the University of Western Ontario Mustangs in their 2nd to last home game of the season! Alex Cole and Safia Ahmad have the call as CJLO Sports goes live at 7:20. Puck Drop is at 7:30.


Radulov has a history of partying hard...

Promises of change were made, local sports media talked about a major shake-up happening, and with that in mind Marc Bergevin, Habs General Manager, sure did not disappoint! After drafting future number one D-man Mikhail Sergachev and trading Lars Eller for gritty forward Andrew Shaw, it happened—P. K. was traded! Fast forward a week later, Marc Bergevin, who is said not to be a fan of July 1st free agency day, signed often troubled KHL winger Alexander Radulov.

The P. K. Subban trade is good for the Montreal Canadiens!

Sure, I liked P. K. but...

I was asked to write an article about the draft held in Buffalo last Friday, which ultimately was overshadowed by the Subban trade rumours (thanks George Laraques and 91.9 Sport). The trade never materialised then, which in retrospect I think is a good thing.
