Lots of news from yesterday, isn't there? On the Habs front, Montreal once again called up Louis Leblanc and Andreas Engqvist from the Bulldogs late last night.
And so the yo-yo treatment continues for these two, especially Leblanc who was just sent down. Leblanc's case is a little different, however, as he was sent down on a technicality. i.e. Leblanc had to be on the AHL roster the day he was sent down, in order to be eligible to play in the AHL playoffs.
After that, the Habs were able to call him up any time they wanted.
Here's hoping he stays till the end of the season.
The real big NHL news yesterday, was the Leafs firing head-coach Ron Wilson. GM Brian Burke being a man of action, wasted no time appointing Randy Carlyle as Wilson's replacement.
That is an excellent hire by the Leafs. Carlyle is a Stanley Cup winner and was thought of, in most circles, to be the best available coach on the market.
To bad he doesn't speak French because he would have been tops on my list of Habs coaching candidates.
