Jared Book is joined by Patrik Bexell on the latest episode of Habsent Minded.

The episode starts with a discussion on Ilya Kovalchuk and what he can bring the team and the risks involved. News was that he would start on the top line. In the end, the two decide that this was a risk worth taking and that it injects some fun into the rest of the season.

(Note that this was recorded before the games on Monday and Tuesday against the Winnipeg Jets and Detroit Red Wings)

They also discuss the contract situation and how that may play into things at the trade deadline as there are several players who will be looking for contracts next season.

The podcast closes with discussion about how both Kovalchuk and Scandella want to play in Montreal and how that extra motivation can make a difference.

The podcast should be available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify if you subscribe to it there.
