Rubbing elbows with world leaders

This week Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang for trade talks, which included a visit to the Bell Centre on Friday to check out Trudeau's favorite hockey team.

The two leaders met with Guy as well as fellow Habs alumni Yvan Cournoyer, Francis Bouillon, Mathieu Dandenault, Patrice Brisebois, and Gaston Gingras.  Also, they took a tour of the team's dressing room.  Following the tour, Trudeau and Li watched Montreal-area children of Chinese descent play a game on the Bell Centre ice.  (link)

Guy on Kirk Muller's re-hiring by the Habs

Interviewed by the Montreal Gazette, Guy recently had some kind words about Kirk Muller, who has just been re-hired by the Montreal Canadiens as an assistant coach.  Muller was originally hired as an assistant coach by Carbo when he took over as head coach of the Habs in 2006.

This video was shot at a Pro-Am tournament in Brossard, QC to support Alzheimer's research.

Cheers, Brenden; and a new interview

Guy's son-in-law Brenden Morrow announced his retirement from hockey on March 17 after a 15-year career, signing a ceremonial one-day contract with the Dallas Stars so he could retire as a member of the team that drafted him in 1997.  Guy was in Dallas for the announcement, as was Brenden's wife Anne-Marie and the three Morrow children.  Congrats to Brenden on a great career!  Read more about his retirement here.

Guy also joined Mike Tyler of TSN 1150 to talk about the playoffs and Subway Canada and Pepsi's new "Hoist the Cup" promotion, in which Guy is taking part by appearing in an online video series  (link to "Hoist the Cup" press release).  You can listen to the interview here.  I haven't been able to find the "Hoist the Cup" online video series yet but I will link it here as soon as I do.

That's all for now.  Enjoy!

False report; and a radio interview

Last week the Habs blogosphere was abuzz over a reported meeting between Carbo and Habs management...with the Canadiens' fortunes in freefall, would he return as a coach?  The meeting was not as it seemed, though; there were a hundred other persons there too as part of a marketing event with Evenko.  (link)

As well, Guy was also interviewed last week on TSN Radio recently for the Leafs Lunch program.  You can listen to that interview here.
