Last Word on Habs Pod: Montreal Canadiens in Freefall
This week, the guys catch up on the latest Habs news after being off for a week. The Habs have been in complete disarray the last 10 games. So much so that it cost head coach Claude Julien and associate coach Kirk Muller their jobs. While nobody is wishing anyone ill, it seemed overdue for a change in the Habs dressing room. Too many consistent issues that plagued the Canadiens through multiple seasons could no longer be ignored.
Now it’s up to interim coach, Dominique Ducharme, to right the ship. In his first two games, there were some troubling signs. Still, it is such a unique season, is it even possible to judge Ducharme or what he wants to do when there is limited practice time. The guys will impart their wisdom to see if they can help the new head coach navigate this difficult situation. One thing is for sure, Ducharme will need some of the Habs best players to find their form, otherwise, it might be a long season. If the Habs continue to spiral, one thing is for sure, Marc Bergevin‘s seat will become incredibly hot.
