This has been a tough year to be a fan of the Montreal Canadiens.
The best player on the team is all-star netminder Carey Price. But the last time I checked, you don't win many hockey games if you don't score goals.
The offence has been dismal, one of the most unexciting, uninspiring teams to follow and watch in all the years I have cheered for Montreal (back to 1968).
The Canadiens have had their moments this season, but just no real consistency.
I don't think they will make the playoffs this season. This lackluster squad just doesn't even come close to the old fire-wagon hockey style of years gone by.
This one is more like the fire-truck has a flat, and is permanently parked.
But, I am very excited about my other big favourite team – the Detroit Tigers.
The off-season signing of Prince Fielder makes up for the loss caused by the season ending injury to Victor Martinez. Combined with Miguel Cabrera, and up and coming offensive stars such as Austin Jackson and Alex Avila, there will be some fireworks in the Motor City this summer.
If Justin Verlander even comes up with just an above-average season, I think the Tigers have a shot to get back to the World Series in the fall.
Looking forward to the start of baseball season, but then again, I always do.
