Looking for the positives in the roughest week of Montreal’s season.

Nathan Ni joins the podcast to speak about the response he has gotten after his article, The CH is not yours to define. The Nordiques left a bit of a vacuum that can’t be filled, something Nathan and I discuss from a European perspective, where a local team would always exist, as the team wouldn’t be moved as it can in the North American pro leagues.

We also try to figure out the Canadiens’ identity in the current slump that they are in. Was it really the games against the Senators that broke the back of the players in Montreal?

With Anton Rasegård out celebrating his birthday, it also fell to Nathan to provide this week’s three stars from the Canadiens, a tough thing to do after two games where no one really shone.
