Just like it is for seemingly every Toronto Maple Leafs fan, the Montreal Canadiens own space in Justin Bieber’s psyche.
Newly signed Montreal Canadiens defenceman Jordan Harris loves the vision Habs general manager Kent Hughes has.
Prayers and well wishes go out to Arizona Coyotes forward Clayton Keller who suffered a scary injury Wednesday night.
That and more in the latest MHN Canadiens Daily:
So apparently Justin Bieber is just your typical, insecure Toronto Maple Leafs fan eh? I mean, you’re finally back on the road touring again Justin; having a great show and time at the Bell Centre but just couldn’t resist taking a jab at the Montreal Canadiens and their fans.
“How’s that playoff spot looking for you guys this year? Maybe next year, maybe next year,” Justin Bieber told the packed Bell Centre crowd Tuesday night.
That prompted profanity laden chants and a ‘Go Habs Go!’ chants from the Canadiens faithful. Bieber tried to drown that out but eventually gave up saying ‘I’m all alone here’ and then provided some lip service telling the fans that Montreal is one of his favorite places to play.
Here’s a newsflash Dweebiebs: Your beloved Leafs not only blew a 3-1 series lead to the Habs in the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs but they’re also 1-2-0 against the worst team in the NHL. No matter the standings, the Habs continue to be the Leafs’ daddy.
While he still may have signed with the Montreal Canadiens even if they didn’t hire Kent Hughes as general manager back in January, the familiarity he has with the former NHL player agent and family advisor helped seal the deal for defenceman Jordan Harris.
