Well, it's that time of year again, you know... when all Habs fans need to brace themselves to jump off the Montreal Canadiens bandwagon. Haha!
Well... it's true, 1st sign of a rough patch and everyone's calling for someone's head. Listen, Montreal is not Ottawa and in the mecca of hockey, we don't need to sacrafice humans anymore.
So Montreal has lost a few games in a row... so what, don't all teams hit a skid sometime during a long 82-game season? They do, it happens annually and almost without fail and things usually get back on track. Last year, the Habs went on a losing streak when the Winter flu bug made it way through the team. Approximately 7 games later, Montreal was back to it's winning ways and looked good until they hit a couple of speed bumps in Martin Biron and R.J. Umberger of the Flyers in the Eastern Conference finals.
Let's all stop calling for Bob Gainey, Guy Carbonneau, Saku Koivu and Alexei Kovalev's heads. It's not necessary and time will right the Habs ship. Afterall, Montreal is destined to win the Stanley Cup this year right, it's the team's Centennial celebration and Montreal needs to cap things off with a parade (riot) down St-Catherine St. :)
