MONTREAL, QC — Few phrases in Montreal Canadiens lore provoke more emotion or revive more memories than “The Forum“. Once called “the most storied building in hockey history” by Sporting News, the arena was home to nearly 18,000 Habs fans between 1924-1996.
Today that iconic structure on Cabot Square no longer echoes with the sounds of skates, sticks, pucks, and cheers amid Stanley Cup-winning excitement. However, Habs fans have found new ways to keep making their voices heard.
With this in mind, Rocket Sports Media is proud to bring you a new video column, Habs Fan Forum. The weekly video series is hosted by contributor Ben Dankiw. Each week he’ll take you on a journey to recap the highs and lows of the Habs from a fan’s perspective. So buckle up, it’s always a wild ride!
On this week’s episode, Ben gets you primed and ready for which Canadiens players should be on your radar for the upcoming fantasy hockey season. While the Habs haven’t been a goldmine for fantasy managers in the past few years, Ben believes there is still some amazing value to be found on the current roster. He names the players he rode to the finals last year, as well which guys he’ll be looking to draft this year.
For the purpose of this video, Ben’s guidance relates to a 10-team/18-player league, meaning only 180 players across all teams would be drafted. Where you aim to select your favourite Habs players definitely matters for the strength of your lineup, so check out his value assessment…and his one wildcard!
