Chris Nilan returns as the special guest on this week’s HI/O Show, joining Gazette columnist Dave Stubbs and sports editor/host Stu Cowan.
Among the topics discussed are the tough love that seems to be working for Canadiens coach Michel Therrien, the resurgence of David Desharnais, whether Max Pacioretty could be traded, and Douglas Murray’s recent scrap with Buffalo Sabres tough-guy John Scott – was the Habs defenceman brave or stupid? Nilan, who was never afraid to drop the gloves during his career with the Canadiens, offers some tips on how to fight the 6-foot-8, 259-pound Sabres giant.
Nilan also tells the story about the day he stole (or should we say borrowed?) the Stanley Cup with former Habs teammate Lucien DeBlois after they won it in 1986.
