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.

Montreal definitely added size to their line up in the last few days by acquiring Dwight King, Jordie Benn and Steve Ott, but where will the scoring come from? Like the rest of Montreal, I am worried about the scoring. I would suggest the Habs to heavily rely on and hope that Carey Price finds his form from 2014 and 2015, because besides the first line, the offence is pretty dry. What is truly concerning however, is that the Canadiens went from a top tier offensive team in the first half of the season to barely hanging on and winning their last 3 games in overtime. Barely finding the back of the net, they have not won a game in regulation all of February; these are some scary stats!

Are you ready for the biggest game of the year? It's not a battle for first place or even a playoff position. It is, however, the most exciting game around these parts. I've had today’s date marked on my calendar since last June. PK Subban is back in town to accept the Governor General's Meritorious Service Decoration award; but the newly appointed Nashville Predator will also take on his old teammates by the same occasion! If this guy played for a big market team, based out of the United States, I think he would be as big of a name in hockey as Lebron James in basketball! I still maintain that his trade was necessary, and that the Canadiens are better with Shea Weber in the line-up. That being said, PK has to be the most exciting player I have ever seen play in Montreal nevertheless.

Tonight, we should see a great game between two teams who are pretty sure to play this spring. You just know PK will give us fans a great showing! The Bell Centre will have a playoff-like atmosphere like no other, so let’s hope for a PK goal and a Montreal win!
