Habs Lost Simmonds To The Leafs, Yet Come Out Winners!

There’s an old adage which says that “He who laughs last, laughs best!” Remember when Toronto Maple Leafs’ fans were bragging about Wayne Simmonds choosing the Leafs over the Montreal Canadiens? That wasn’t fun for Habs’ fans. It was rather annoying actually. But that’s certainly not the first, nor the last time that the NHL’s two biggest fan bases go at each other. We are doomed to have a lot more of it this season as both teams will be facing each other for a whooping 10 games out of 56 in total! Thankfully for Canadiens’ fans, they have more to brag about than the Maple Leafs’, historically speaking.

Habs’ New Year’s Resolutions

Every year, people have resolutions on time for the New Year. Boxing week is traditionally the best months for exercise equipment sales and Gym memberships. You go to the gym in January and most machines are taken almost all day. Two to three weeks into the New Year, people’s motivation is fading and by March, only regulars are still using the equipment. Diets are out the window, the cigarette pack is back on the counter and old habits show their ugly faces again. It’s back to square one for most people.

Habs’ Fans In Panic Mode About Cole Caufield

With Habs’ fans, it’s too often all or nothing. The team sucks or they will win the Stanley Cup. A player is the best or he’s hated and should be traded. A prospect is either a steal (how often have we heard that mentioned about the last couple of drafts?) or he’s a flop… at 19 years old, before playing a single game in the NHL. And in comes the great Sam Pollock with his timeless quote about the Montreal Canadiens’ fans: “[Fans] have their favourites and strong emotional attachments with them. A sports administrator who wants to be successful can never think that way.”

The Tsar Has Arrived: Tempering Fans’ Expectation

The Montreal Canadiens surprised more than one when, with their second round selection and 38th overall pick, they called the name of Alexander Romanov back in the 2018 NHL Draft. Many raised an eyebrow, some laughed at the idea of picking him this high. That’s because most mock draft experts and wannabes had him much, much further down their list. When Trevor Timmins was asked about selecting this high up, he was surprised at the question because that’s where he was on their list. At the 2019 World Junior Championships, Romanov shut up all the doubters when he was named the tournament’s top defenseman by both the organizers and the media. After that, everyone saw what Timmins and his staff saw in him.
