Another week has passed, during which the Montreal Canadiens doubled their win total for the season. Patrik Bexell, Jared Book and Anton Rasegård get together to blast out a fresh episode of Habsent Minded, covering all things Canadiens.

Cole Caufield has struggled in his rookie year and after 10 games, management decided to send him down for a possible confidence boost in Laval. Was this the right move to make?

In his place, Montreal called up pre-season starlet Michael Pezzetta. Pezzetta has continued to play well for the Rocket during the opening eight games, tallying six points while demonstrating his everlasting grit. This means that a player who was recently ranked as number 36 on this year’s Top 25 Under 25 should be primed for his NHL debut. As is the story with hockey as a sport, the tables can turn in the blink of an eye.

Other subjects covered include Cédric Paquette and his expected suspension, the eventuality of any Habs’ players on World Juniors and/or Olympic rosters, and what is missing from this year’s edition of the Montreal Canadiens.
