Segment 2: BIG Topic - Habs Under Construction (Orange Cones Everywhere)

This week, we watched as the Montreal Canadiens made one personnel move for the short term and one that is unlikely to have an impact for several years.

Once again, the Canadiens appointed a person without experience in their new role: Marie-Philip Poulin as a part-time player development consultant.

The first signing of a player who was on the active roster last season was Chris Wideman. The veteran defenceman received a two-year contract extension.
