CANADIENS FANS IMPATIENT WITH GM MARC BERGEVIN’S PATIENCE

Apr 18th, 2016 | By
1 BERGEVIN GROUP

Bergevin is totally aware of the structural problems plaguing his team. He has a club that can only win if his goaltender continues to play like an extra-terrestrial. That all-eggs-in-one-basket situation buried the team last season.

At least nobody got hurt at the Bell Centre Saturday night, although there were times during the game when former Canadien Mike Blunden seemed to be trying to give Mike Condon the old Carey Price/Chris Kreider treatment.   Ultimately it was a game that meant absolutely nothing in the standings unless you’re one of those

There is hardly any point in breaking down the Canadiens 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers Tuesday night. It was the same old thing. A lack of NHL talent or experience from the goal out. It’s been like that since December and it won’t be any different in the final two games of the season.
