Habby Birthday Lars!

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
MONTREAL - Exactly 22 years ago today, the Eller clan was swaddling their new bundle of joy, Lars in blankets at the hospital in Rodovre, Denmark, not knowing that their little guy was taking his first breaths on his way to NHL stardom. As the Habs’ birthday boy gets set to blow out the candles today, why not take a minute to see what else has gone down on this date in history.

The Year of the Snake

Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means your family will not starve. This could be taken metaphorically to mean that a Snake could never have a problem with his family starving because he is such a great mediator, making him good at business. Or it could mean that a Snake would be willing to sacrifice his possessions, something the Snake has a lot of, in order to pay for his family’s food. Any way it is interpreted is representative of the Snake’s character and is a measure of the value he puts on his material wealth. The Snake is keen and cunning, quite intelligent and wise.


With the news breaking recently that Zodiac signs may or may not have changed, we couldn’t decide what traits Lars really possesses based on the stars. Is he still the same old Taurus he’s always been, or is it time for the speedy Dane to embrace his alleged-Aries-ness at age 22?
