Boone joins the guys on HIO

In our third episode, Mike Boone – who does the live blog for every Habs game on HIO – joins Stu Cowan and Dave Stubbs to look back on the season that was and set the stage for the playoffs. The panel discusses whether Carey Price is the goalie to carry the Canadiens to the Cup, looks at who was the MVP on this year’s team, and discusses the job coach Michel Therrien and GM Marc Bergevin did to turn this team around after last year’s dismal performance.

    Great to see these guys (including Boone) ‘in the flesh’ after having read them all for many years; from Stu’s non-hockey tales across the country, Stubbs’ personal spin on all our players, and Boone’s frank on-the-ball assessments which always balance the right amount of vinegar and oil.
    “hockey p.i.” speaks for the mildly blind 1% and, just as this team is built, the 1% don’t drive this team or this town any longer. Even though Boons was an Entertainment writer, the Habies are to some degree entertainment (and a religion, and a past time, and a fabric of our history, etc…). Boone is a Montrealer and loves (and dare I say ‘knows’) the Habies or he knows at least what they give this town. His followers and their intrinsic respect (95% of the time) during his blogs are a testament to this. I couldn’t think of a better person to have as a first guest with such questions which we’re all asking ourselves every day about this club. To have a player as a guest before the playoffs would be a display of the Habies’ communication department and would just be careful meandering plith. Boone -alhumd’lillah- is the opposite.
    Damn great episode, keep it up.

    Boone and Stubbs remind me of Statler and Waldorf in this segment 😀

    The guy below is entitled to his opinion, but I liked the show. Mike Boone has been following the Habs for a long time, so he knows a few things about this organization. A perfectly appropriate and informative guest!

    Mike Boone? One would hope you would feature guests with at least an iota of hockey knowledge or background rather than someone who used to write for the Entertainment section of the Gazette.

      Considering Mike has been contributing to this blog since it was launched (5 or 6 years ago, if I recall correctly), and is cited in numerous publications (The Greatest Game comes to mind) about the Habs hockey history, I’d say he is very well qualified.
