Habsent Minded 2.34: To tank or not to tank? That is the question.

Are the Canadiens good enough to make a playoff run or is every win hurting the long-term chances of building a competitive roster?

Patrik Bexell and Anton Rasegård get together once again to discuss Montreal’s remaining chances to make the playoffs after the losing streak ended with two wins against Ottawa Senators and Calgary Flames. Could a resurrected Carey Price and the team’s neverending competitiveness be a sign that they actually do have what it takes to make a run if they did squeeze in?

Are the slim chances of a wild-card spot something to continue toward, or would players and management be better off losing their way into a better lottery position and possibly be Dernière pour Lafrenière?

The Swedes also talk about Ilya Kovalchuk’s impact on his new home town and what he can bring to a young roster and the importance of finding hidden gems in later rounds of the draft.
