Does the Canadiens’ decision to entrust Samuel Montembeault in net for the second consecutive season finally confirm the hierarchy in the team’s famous “ménage a trois” in front of the net?
“When I found out this afternoon that we finally gave him the match, a second one in the same week, you just made him number one,” said former NHL coach Michel Bergeron on “JiC” on Wednesday.
The ineffable “Bergy” was also quick to congratulate Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes for his handling of the Montembeault case, to whom he offered a three-season contract extension a few days ago.
Now the “ménage a trois” with Cayden Primeau and Jake Allen must end. And there is a perfect solution for that.
“Let’s settle Allen there,” said “Bergy.” He didn’t have 15 years with the Montreal Canadiens! He came here to help. The solution there is called voting. Let’s stop, whether we like it or not, we are here in the National League.”
If it was done with Joel Armia at the start of the calendar, why not do it again with Allen?
“He’s a good veteran, Allen, he’ll do what Armia did,” he explained. He will play, he will work, hoping another team claims him.”
