This post is just to share an article posted on the AHL website about the great season the Bulldogs are having.
It’s really refreshing to see the Hammies having this kind of success. Of course, the past showed us that a successful AHL team doesn’t necessarily translate into a successful NHL team a few seasons later. When Hamilton won the Calder Cup in 2007, everyone was pretty excited about the habs future. Those promises have not really materialized into fantastic results for Montreal over the last 3 seasons, so let’s not get too carried away as habs fans.
But anyway, as a Bulldogs fan too, this season is still very enjoyable. Guy Boucher has done a tremendous job there for his first season in professional hockey. I used to be first and foremost a Habs fan, and even if I was happy when the Dogs were winning, I barely checked their results regularly. But a meh Habs season added to a very exciting Hammies campaign changed my perspective! I’m getting addicted, and I can’t wait for their playoffs to start.
By the way, apparently, Gregory Stewart was loaned by the Bulldogs to the Chicago Wolves today. The Habs still have his rights.
