The 2020-21 season was one helluva ride for Montreal Canadiens fans, players, coaches, management, and rivals alike. It was the first time in 28 years that the team made it to the Stanley Cup Final, and it was damn exciting.
Shortly after the Tampa Bay Lightning crushed our hopes and dreams, the Canadiens’ injury secrets came spilling out in full force. Paul Byron had hip surgery, Carey Price knee surgery, and Shea Weber had, well, seems like pretty much everything wrong with him. Battling foot, ankle, and hip injuries all through the playoffs caught up with him as he too headed into surgery, but will not be joining his team at all this year.
