GAMEDAY: All Habs Headlines
► SeriousFan09 joins All Habs: Regular readers will know that All Habs not only provides you daily serving of information about the Montreal Canadiens, but in addition, features all players in the organization. We even have a Prospect tab in the navigation bar to get you quickly to the articles on player development including the very popular “Who’s This Guy?” series as well as full reports from every Canadiens camp.
To bolster our coverage further, we’ve added columnist Robert Rice, also known as @SeriousFan09, who brings a wealth of knowledge on prospects to the All Habs team. I have admiration and respect for Robert’s expertise and integrity. Today we are launching the first in his new weekly series titled “Catching the Torch.”
You’ll find his reason for making the jump at his personal blog. From today forward, Robert will be posting exclusively at All Habs — you will find his comprehensive article here every Monday.
“In the future, you can expect all my writing content to come through All Habs so this is essentially a retirement of “Habs and Hockey” as well, but the page shall remain intact. I’ve composed several pieces I am particularly proud of so I see no need to close the blog down entirely. This decision was never easy, but no decision of consequence should be so I stand firm in my belief that this was the right choice.” — Robert Rice
