The Montreal Canadiens started their 2021-22 season this week, but their three games weren’t even the headlining event of their opening week.

That honour went to Nick Suzuki’s eight-year contract extension signed a week ago. Jared Book and Matt Drake discuss the contract, and what can be expected from Suzuki during the nine years, including this year.

They then discuss the first three games from the Canadiens. Where is the offence, and where will it come from? Jonathan Drouin has been a great story to start the season, and Mike Hoffman’s return will surely help as well but this team will need to start pushing for goals rather than trying to win low-scoring games.

With three games remaining in the homestand, they discuss the games against the San Jose Sharks, Carolina Hurricanes, and Detroit Red Wings including the anticipated return of Jesperi Kotkaniemi.

In the final part of the podcast, they discuss the rumours linking Marc Bergevin with other NHL teams.
