Over on Canadiens 1-on-1 I saw a video of one of the newest Montreal Canadiens players. Hal Gill.
The big defensemen had a tour of the workout facilities, posed for some pictures and suited up in his new uniform (number 75). He then skated with some kids.
I don’t know much about Hal Gill. Really, I just spent time disliking him because he played for the Toronto Maple Leafs and for the Boston Bruins. But from what I’ve read and the few videos I’ve seen he seems to have a good attitude.
Hal, if you happen to read this (hey, you never know!), like I said I was never a fan… .just because you wore those other jerseys… but now, I gotta say that I can’t wait to see you clear people away from the front of the net. And seeing you wear the Habs “bleu, blanc et rouge” is really making it hard for me to wait until the season starts!!
(All is forgiven for that other jersey thing)
Hal Gill, welcome to the Montreal Canadiens!
Here’s the video.
