Marc Bergevin Opens Up About This and Next Season

Habs’ fans can be finicky at times… or often, depending on who you ask and who you’re talking about. Particularly when the team is struggling for consistency and the results on the ice simply aren’t there and haven’t been there for close to 30 years now. So there is ground to be frustrated and we all are. An organisation often accused of a lack of transparency, Geoff Molson and his staff have ensured to tell the media and the fans more than before.

While they are not mathematically eliminated yet, this last series of defeats pretty much sealed the Canadiens’ fate when it comes to making the playoffs. At the time of writing this, they are seven points out of the last Wild Card spot and must leapfrog five other teams – and hope they all get cold – by going on a winning streak themselves.
