  1. .. and so the dog days of hockey summer begin.

  2. I was not happy when the Habs traded Desjardins. I know that Price is our #1, but Cedric is good on Hamilton and should be given a shot at back up where he can show what he’s worth and earn a better spot on another team (if he’s that good). Hopefully he can take his game to the next level and we can see him succeed.
