Wednesday Caterwaul: Panthers Open Forum

“I remember, for a few years, we used to play Montreal around Christmas time or just after Christmas, and it would be like playing in Montreal because there were a lot of French Canadians who spent the winter down there or other Canadians on vacation. The thing you realize when you’re down there is everybody is from somewhere else - so they go to cheer on the team they grew up with.”

- A thumbs-up to league realignment from Calgary blueliner Jay Bouwmeester, via The Globe and Mail. Yeah, those Montreal holiday games are always a hoot for the locals.
