This may surprise you. This even may shock you.
There are some people in this world who don’t like the Montreal Canadiens.
Yes, I know. We ask ourselves, how could that be? But I’ve heard through a reliable source that there are some who feel this way and so I’ve accepted it.
They hate the Habs even in this day in age, when the Habs aren’t exactly scaring the wits out of anybody. It seems to be ingrained in some.
You can bet that there were those in some corners of the world who smiled and chuckled with glee when Andre Markov went down for four months. They toasted their buddies when Ryan O’Byrne was added to the injury list. They whooped with glee when Vancouver trounced them 7-1. They giggled uncontrollably as they saw the Kostityn’s stink on a nightly basis. They loved seeing Nashville pepper Carey Price with 55 shots.
And when the team is in a slump, some think it’s the best thing since Viagra.
And believe it or not, there are people now anxiously waiting to hear if Brian Gionta will be sidelined for a lengthy time, and hoping like crazy that this will be the case.
It’s all very shocking.
