This Week’s Show Segment 1: Week in Review, Habs News, League News  While Joe digs out of an avalanche of snow, Chris steps in to join Rick in discussing this week's most pressing issues about the Montreal Canadiens. With the mainstream media churning out stories about moving two of the Canadiens leaders, Marc Bergevin made it clear that he would not even entertain the idea of trading Carey Price and Shea Weber. The guys weigh in. The Habs are getting healthy. Joel Armia returned to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers. Brendan Gallagher and Jonathan Drouin should return following the bye week which presents a good problem for the coaching staff. Where do they fit in the lineup and where will Ilya Kovalchuk play currently on a point per game pace?  In a move that surprised many, the Vegas Golden Knights fired head coach Gerard Gallant replacing him with Pete DeBoer. Could Gallant again be a fit with the Canadiens. Chris and Rick will offer their take.  The Montreal Canadiens still don't have an ECHL affiliate. The mayor of Trois-Rivières rejected their proposal but the team is taking another shot. The guys will update the drama. Segment 2: The Big Topic The Canadiens currently have a good crop of prospects making their way through the system. But what happened to all of their first round picks over the past decade? The guys take a look back. Segment 3: Have Your Say Reading your responses to the Canadiens Connection question of the week: What do the Habs lines look like when Brendan Gallagher and Jonathan Drouin return? Listener's calls and texts Bad tweet of the week
