As I was peacefully dozing off last night, a thought occured to me.
Often, people complain of the lack of French-Canadian talent on the Montreal Canadiens.
But, looking at the Hamilton Bulldogs' roster, that argument really does not have much teeth.
Michael Bournival, Gabriel Dumont, Olivier Fortier, Louis Leblanc, Philippe Lefebvre, Michel Ouellet and Frederic St-Denis are all players who can reasonably expect to crack the Bulldogs' roster this year.
To boot, four of the aforementioned own NHL experience, joining Habs' regulars Francis Bouillon and David Desharnais in that category.
In short, perhaps it is time that complaint be put to bed, don't you think?
Habs and Hockey News
- Wayne Gretzky says he is optimistic that the NHL - NHLPA dispute will be resolved by January 1st. Talks between both sides resume today. Do you share his positive outlook?
- The Hockey News' Ken Campbell comments on recent issues, including ownership and Krys Barch's comments.
- Following up on an old story from this summer, some Sault Ste. Marie greyhounds were facing sexual assault charges but now it seems their court date has been pushed back. USA Today has more.
- Finally, a bit of humor for your Tuesday. This video shows a classic goal celebration go hilariously wrong.
