MONTREAL, QC – Few phrases in Montreal Canadiens lore provoke more emotion or revive more memories than “The Forum“. Once called “the most storied building in hockey history” by Sporting News, the arena was home to nearly 18,000 Habs fans between 1924-1996.
Today that iconic structure on Cabot Square no longer echoes with the sounds of skates, sticks, pucks, and cheers amid Stanley Cup-winning excitement. However, Habs fans have found new ways to keep making their voices heard.
With this in mind, Rocket Sports Media is proud to bring you a new video column, Habs Fan Forum. The weekly video series is hosted by contributor Ben Dankiw. Each week he’ll take you on a journey to recap the highs and lows of the Habs from a fan’s perspective. So buckle up, it’s always a wild ride!
On this week’s episode, Ben talks about the elephant in the room: the loss to the New Jersey Devils. Well, okay he does talk about that a little bit, but let’s be real here, that was not the biggest piece of news coming from the Montreal Canadiens this week!
We’ve all likely heard the news by now that Dominique Ducharme is out as head coach and Martin St. Louis takes over the position in an interim capacity. Ben’s excitement at the first part of that sentence is only clouded by his disbelief when it comes to the replacement selection!
Ben also takes a moment to congratulate Nick Suzuki for his All-Star Game appearance, sharing why he thinks it’s important for Suzuki. It’s another big week to discuss!
