The Canadian confirms the arrival of a documentary series on its reconstruction

A few months ago, it was reported that the Canadiens were planning to present a behind-the-scenes documentary. It was a scoop from Jean Trudel.

At the time, there was talk of a 24CH-style concept under a different name.

This morning, the Habs confirmed that this would be the case and that JT was right. The club issued a press release stating that “La reconstruction: au coeur des Canadiens de Montréal” will land on Crave later in 2024.

Basically, over the course of eight one-hour episodes, Canadiens fans will be able to see what happened during the 2023-2024 season.

Of course, this will be done under the Habs’ watch, so we won’t see everything. That said, we can expect to see elements that aren’t usually available publicly.

As Anthony Marcotte points out, Crave’s people also went to see the Rocket in Laval at the end of the season to take some images for the Canadiens’ project.

Interesting stuff.

Fans can listen to the project in French or English. Marc-André Grondin and George Stroumboulopoulos will provide narration in both languages.

The club’s documentary series will feature several moments (e.g., a golf tournament, training camp, deadline, trip out West, fathers’ trip).

What fascinates me most is that the project includes “reconstruction” in the title. We all know the Habs are rebuilding, but the club hasn’t been afraid to hide it or say “the R word” for a few years.

The goal, as stated in the Habs press release, will be to allow fans “to witness the passion that fuels a dynamic and competitive club in the making” via the documentary.

That’s what many people want: to understand the club’s process.

I wonder if the Habs are doing this precisely because they’re rebuilding and want to give their fans a sweet treat. But whatever the reason, I’m sure it will be well received by fans.
