Habby Birthday Wiz!

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
MONTREAL -- Exactly 27 years ago today, the Wisniewski clan was swaddling their new bundle of joy, James in blankets at the hospital in Canton, MI, 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 Rat
There’s no shame in being born a rat according to the Chinese zodiac. People born in the Year of the Rat are respected and considered courageous, enterprising people. It is deemed an honor to be born in the Year of the Rat and it is considered a privilege to be associated with a Rat. Rats know exactly where to find solutions and can take care of themselves and others without problems. They use their instinctive sense of observation to help others in times of need and are among the most fit of all the Animal signs to survive most any situation.

With the news breaking recently that Zodiac signs may or may not have changed, we couldn’t decide what traits Wiz really possesses based on the stars. Is he still the same old Pisces he’s always been, or is it time for James to embrace his alleged-Aquarious-ness at age 27?

Traditional Pisces Traits
