Habs Sing “Let It Go” With Fantastic Results

The Montreal Canadiens have released the video of the holiday season with their own rendition of the hit song “Let It Go” from the hit Disney film “Frozen” It will easily be a new favourite of yours because it’s hilarious, and any young kids you have because well, it’s “Frozen”.

*Disclaimer* I also cannot sing. At all

Best

PK Subban

You can tell that PK Subban either came up with the idea to do the video or was the first to agree to it because nobody has more fun then him. You could have just got him to do the song by himself and there would have been no objections. I’m not even 100% sure he knew they were filming.

Brendan Gallagher

Gallagher has a tough job in this one because he’s got to set the tone and he doesn’t disappoint. The patented Gallagher grin makes an appearance throughout the whole time he’s singing. I don’t know if he has a future in music but he should give it a shot

Michael Condon

Condon might be 2nd to Carey Price on the ice but when it comes to the recording studio he’s got him beat. The amount of emotion displayed in his performance is something that everybody can learn something from.

Dale Weiss

Dale Weiss is a true performer and a showman. Gallagher passes him the baton and he just runs with it. The vocals are there, the hand gestures are a brilliant touch, and when he looks into the camera it’s like he’s staring into your soul. It was truly breathtaking to watch

Tomas Fleischmann 

Fleischmann doesn’t give the best vocal performance on the team but you have to love the enthusiasm he gives. Holding that high note on “free” (at 1:57) is a sight to behold and the inspiring call to arms at 3:24 were more than enough to sell me on his spot in the top

Worst 

Max Pacioretty

I’m not sure if Pacioretty knew that he was singing a song because he actually just speaks his one line. This seems like an instance where he wanted no part in doing the video but was convinced to because he’s one of the best players on the team. I like to imagine Subban following him around singing the song to try and convince him to participate

Tom Gilbert

I. Don’t. Think. Tom. Gilbert. I’m sure you get the point. I don’t know if Gilbert is singing or doing a really bad Barack Obama impression. The long pause can sometimes add some drama and emphasis to what you’re saying but when you’re singing it sounds very strange. At least it seemed like he was having fun

Alex Galchenyuk

Galchenyuk is an exciting player to watch on the ice but in this video it seems like somebody had just woken him up and asked him to say/sing his lines before he had any coffee. It kind of reminds of the cartoon Droopy Dog. It’s a good thing he’s a talented player because he’s not the most enthusiastic singer.

Andrei Markov

I contemplated giving Markov a pass because it’s hard enough to speak a different language let alone sing. Then I thought back to the enthusiasm Fleischmann showed during his parts and decided that if he can do it so can Markov. The effort just wasn’t there but hopefully he turns it around for the Easter video.

Tomas Plekanec

Plekanec might be my favourite for many reasons the least of which is that he isn’t even close to following the beat of the song. Mostly though it’s hard not to laugh when the camera cuts to him and he lifts his head and speaks his line “here I stand” as if it’s the beginning to a really epic speech you would give your team before a playoff game. It wasn’t very good singing but you can put me down as inspired.
