  • Getting to know your enemy: Montreal Canadiens


    Today marks day 2 of the NHL preview series here at Hockey Wilderness. Today's team is one that burns my heart a bit to discuss. Thanks to Andrew Berkshire from Habs Eyes on the Prize for taking time out of harassing me over Suter losing the Norris to actually answer these questions and not be too much of a jerk.

    Make sure to include your thoughts on how the Wild can (and should) beat the Canadiens this season!

    How would you feel about the depth of your team?

    Who are your fan favorites, and why are they favorites?Well, Subban obviously because he's Subban. The kid does everything and makes it look fun, and he's brought the hate back. You know how long it's been since absolutely everyone loathed a Montreal Canadien? When someone is so damn good that everyone hates him, you can't help but love him more.

    Carey Price is a fan favourite as well, but his comes with a caveat as all goaltenders in Montreal spend their careers balancing on the edge of a knife. When Price plays well he's bigger even than Subban, a rock star in packed arena who has the entire crowd chanting his name, but when he falters it only takes a single bad goal for people to say he needs to be trade, but that's Montreal.

    Who are must follow writers on twitter for your team?
    I wish I had more but there just aren't that many.

    Who are must follow fans? (preferably non-crazy fans)
    There is literally no such thing as a non-crazy Habs fan. In fact that reality even spawned a hashtag on twitter this year: #HIOHF, which means "Hell is other Habs fans", and also contains the initials two websites that have the most crazies (HIO = Hockey Inside Out and HF = Hockey's Future boards).
    We do have some cool crazy fans though, people like @HabsLaughs, @HeyMyNameIsWill, @scottmatla, @imisssaku, @lawyergirl77, @breannad, oh and this guy you may have heard of before named Jay Baruchel (@BaruchelNDG).
