(Apologies, this is going to be a very brief post.)
Just think. 24 hours from now we will have watched the first game of the Canadiens' season. FINALLY.
I, for one, would be very okay with Josh Gorges making a tradition out of season-opener GWG's. Pretty please, Josh?
Today's cuts and Monday's suspension leave us without (among others) Alex Henry, Ryan White, and Mike Cammalleri. You know what that means: get ready, Moen and Lapierre. The Habs will need their fighters to be in top form.
If Carey Price really is missing tomorrow's game because of the flu, I'd like to put a plague upon the house of whoever let him catch that flu. (Yes, I'm aware that the house doesn't need a plague, as its inhabitants are probably already sick.) I have faith in Alex Auld, but this is clearly a different goaltending situation than the one our team was in last season. We can't afford to have a top goalie who's sick. Can the Canadiens hire someone to chase after players with warm blankets and Purell? I think it would be a good investment.
See you at puck drop!! ...Maybe not you, Carey.
