Hey everyone, the Canadiens are 1st in the Eastern Conference in early December! Surely the structural problems that cratered their season last year aren’t going to happen again, right?

They’ve brought in a lot of hot-headed white guys character players to help them out.

Lady Byng candidate Andrew Shaw.

And how about Alexander Radulov? 18 points in 24 games is pretty good.

Radulov might be the only player asking to be put on the non-protected list for the expansion draft. But he’s actually been playing well and hasn’t gotten any chafing yet from the constant lap-dances he requires.

The Canadiens have had 8 straight games decided by a single goal. Carey Price has come back from missing almost all of last year and, NBD, has a 1.68 GAA and .947 SV%. It’s almost like PK Subban wasn’t the problem last year! Just kidding, racists! It’s 2016 so you’re right even when you’re absolutely wrong in everything you believe, hope for, and do.

That’s Our Douchebag!

The trick to loving Logan Couture is to just accept that he’s always an angels wing away from being his brother. Once you get beyond that, he’s honestly hilarious. He’s been absolutely wrecking the Kings ever since he got back from injury last year, even when going up against Kopitar and Doughty/Muzzin. The cognitive dissonance this creates among the smarter Kings fans who think of Kopitar as being their special little secret possession messiah is funny enough. But the best part is that he obviously relishes making those guys look stupid—look at his reaction after every goal against them. [kissing fingers gesture]

Canadiens @ Sharks

7:30 PM Pacific

Prediction: Michel Therrien makes his mark on the season some way or other.
