Hello everyone! Recorded in the aftermath of a 5-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens, one which left us sad and/or emotionally devastated, your co-hosts Alan (@sliiiiip) and moi (@PhilipAIver) present to you Episode 7 of the AIH 20416 Podcast (@AIH20416). Watching the
Habs practice Jets game gave us an abundance to talk about even in the intro, whether it was Winnipeg's sneak preview of a post-Ladd/Buff future, or the horrors of a Stuart - Myers 3rd pairing. The degree to which we were disheartened during the opening segment was quite remarkable; let no one say we don't care about the Winnipeg Jets!
We were joined this week by Eyes on the Prize (@HabsEOTP) contributor Liam McKenna (@liam_mckenna), to discuss both the Winnipeg Jets worst game of the 2015-16 season and the state of Les Habitants more generally. After praising the ol' rubber in Mike Condon and some debate over Dustin Byfuglien's hit on Brendan Gallagher, the Habs talk party train left the station and went on its merry way. General Manager Marc Bergevin's building of depth, what constitutes success for Alexander Semin, the otherworldly ability of PK Subban, having a love-hate relationship with the Quebec Nordiques, Max Pacioretty as a Captain and an American, the list goes on and on.
Somewhere in-between the abundance of Habs discussion and Alan stealing my Carey Price question (listen for my clicks and pops in the background, it's rather comical), we managed to lift our spirits before the night was through. And don't worry folks: I ask the Jarred Tinordi question you've all been clamoring for. Use one of the links below to listen and discover the answer!
