Jared Book is joined by Patrik Bexell and Namiko Hitotsubashi to discuss the most recent week for the Montreal Canadiens.

Please note that this episode was recorded before the news of Jonathan Drouin and Paul Byron’s surgery from Monday, and Tuesday’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The three discuss the first 20 games of the season, and what can be taken from it, good and bad. They look at the recent stretch that has seen Montreal rise up the standings in the Eastern Conference.

Jared tells a story from the weekend at the Laval Rocket game regarding Rocket coach Joël Bouchard and Jake Evans, plus see why this GIF is relevant...

Finally, Patrik provides an update from some prospects in Europe including one starting to find their game and Jared discusses why some fans may not trust the Canadiens prospect depth.
