Habs Chill At Tremblant

The Canadiens are holed up at beautiful Mont-Tremblant, a resort village nestled in the Laurentian Mountains, far from the madding crowds.

Here they’re able to bond, practice nearby, nurse wounds, put shaving cream in teammates’ shoes, and focus on one particular order of business.

Sweeping the Sens.

I just don’t know why they need to escape at all.  Habs fans and the media are a laid-back bunch who would hardly bother them at all. Right?

The Canadiens have been heading to this spectacular region at playoff time off and on for decades, and below are a couple of write ups from my scrapbook when they were preparing to do battle with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1964.

At that time they chilled out in Ste-Marguerite Station.

  1. Perhaps the Habs can exorcise the Leafs evilness from Dearborn next round, as they await the Red Wings (hopefully)…

    Any word if Pateryn will replace Beaulieu? I kinda relish the though of #64 just smashing anyone of the dork-loser-snot-senators into the boards tomorrow night.

    It has been years since the Habs put an 8 spot on anyone (I think Benoit Pouliot had a hat trick that night) and Wednesday night would be a nice number to bring the curtain down on that teams season. Habs tally 8 and CP tosses a shut out, my call!!!

  2. Mike M, I like my scenario from my previous post better but authors are entitled to their own thoughts & feelings, oh hell just crush the whining wimps 🙂 GO HABS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Mike M, I suppose it’ll be Pateryn in the lineup, although he shoots right and Beaulieu left. But that’s not a problem. When Pateryn hits, it seems to hurt. Like Emelin. Just the ticket to help finish off those bums. And even though Mike. W says it could be a 1-0 game because of the math from previous ones, I very much like that 8-0 score. Although the Habs are such a classy bunch they probably won’t run up the score and it only 6-0 instead.

  4. “If a right-winger is hurt, we can call up Yvan Cournoyer from the juniors…”

    Yes Toe. That kid might be worth a shot! 🙂

    PS – Greg Pateryn is in and he’ll be paired with Emelin.

  5. Our Great Dane #81——-When you don’t have the puck you don’t get hit too much. Game #3 we got hit a lot— who had the puck. Interesting way to look at it.
