Habs comic art by Wade Alexander

Habs love has been heavy this year, and though the team’s fate in round two of the playoffs was unknown at press time, appreciation for the team’s top two stars is unlikely to waver no matter what. And so we have goalie Carey Price as Hottest Man and P.K. Subban as Best Sports Personality (just ahead of Price) AND Best-dressed Montrealer, the latter in light of those sharp retro-ish suits that even that bellowing old fart Don Cherry has conceded props to. The return of the Best Weirdo category yielded predictable results, but it’s nice to see musicians and scenesters in the mix along with street people and drag queens. You may notice more francophone names than usual, a trend you’ll see in many of the survey sections, a reflection of our growing bilingual/franco readership. But it seems everyone agrees on PKP being the city’s Slimiest Politician — he landed that dubious distinction by a landslide.
