Truth be told I was called away from the good old laptop to deal with other events that ran into overtime. Not like we appeared to have missed anything, aside from the fact the Habs are officially out of the playoffs.
Just six games left in the NHL season for Le Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge, and they could make the Florida Panthers or Washington playoff hopes more difficult this week. Both teams are separated by four points, which is third and ninth place for the top-two Southeast Conference teams.
Well they're getting an arena, now how long till Gary Bettman concedes a new or used NHL franchise to Quebec City? Leigh-Anne Power, Abe Hefter and myself discussed that this evening on CJAD's The Locker Room. Leigh-Anne is convinced that Bettman will never put another team in Canada, until trying it in another US market such as Kansas City. She's probably right, but QC is a certainly deserving hockey city for it.
The weekend had some good news, as Jean Beliveau was released from hospital Friday.
