Burke is a fantastic GM. other good ones are Holmgren, Regier, Chiarelli,Holland, Wilson,Sutter, Risebrough. those guys are heads above Gainey, always will be. But don't take my word for it. Just wait till the summer when Gainey does nothing, as usual! Maybe Smolinski has a brother who plays. HAHAHa. go get him Gainey, because you're great at signing losers, who nobody else wants!

so I guess Prospal, a 30 goal scorer, which Philly got for a pick, was crazy. huh? And I guess Federov couldn't help? or Lapointe? And many more players available, unless of course you have blinders on, So hitting 2 doubles instead of a homerun is not good enough?

was anyone aware of the fact that Gainey focused solely on Hossa, with no other balls in the fire? So in other words, if you don't get Hossa, which we didn't, there's nothing left. Is this the way a responsible GM should manage a team? Are you kidding? while other GM's are working on multitude deals, Gainey has blinders on, only attempting to get 1 player. Did you people see what Gainey did in the off season? nothing! oh, yes all the UFA's (except Hamrlik), sat in the pressbox last night(Breezer, Dandeneault, Smolinski). And last year's deadline, did nothing. the year before at deadline, nothing. He is unable to make trades and sign free agents. So what the hell has he done? remember that he isn't the one who does the drafting, it's Timmons. We need help on our 2nd line, help on defence, need a faceoff centerman, need a 3rd defensive player, need an experienced goalie to mentor Price, a power forward, AND GAINEY DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING TO IMPROVE THIS TEAM!!! This guy is afraid to make deals, he's frail mentally, no guts, not aggressive, way too conservative. And wait, until the offseason, because he'll sign NOBODY AS USUAL! As long as he is our GM this team will do nothing, and NEVER WIN THE CUP! MARK MY WORDS! absolutely shameful. in 4 years, he makes 1 trade. Are you kidding me? It probable would be better for us to miss the playoffs, because that's the only way he gets fired. Once he's gone, we will imprve and win the cup, and ONLY THEN

why is Ryder still her? it's going to leave because he's UFA, and WE GET NOTHING FOR HIM! good move Bob! and I guess our 2nd line has improved by doing nothing? good move Bob! and I guess we're now tougher? good move Bob! and no experienced goalie to mentor Price? good move Bob! I'm glad we traded Huet because he was awful, but Gainey should have gotten some scoring help, if not hossa. It didn't have to be Hossa, but there were other players available. Talk about putting all your eggs in 1 basket. Hey, Federov was taken for nothing, as well Prospal. Gainey you truly are a LAME DUCK GM! this team will never go anywhere with the MOST PASSIVE AND CONSERVATIVE GM IN THE LEAGUE! thanks for nothing!

so who do we have on our 2nd line? NOBODY, SAME AS BEFORE! wasn’t our goal, to get a winger for KOIVU? it’s 12 years, and we still HAVEN’T GOTTEN HIM A WINGER! DISGUSTING! and those of you who think we’re going to sign in the offseason,a UFA scorer, dream on! it NEVER happens. players don’t want to come here. So next year at this same time, like a broken record, we’ll be in the same situation. some things about this team never change. as long as Gainey is our GM, don’t expect a cup contender!

basically Philly got Prospal for nothing. he has 29 goals. How come Gainey didn’t go get him? we missed the boat on that one. But Holmgren is a very aggressive GM, unlike Gainey.

Forsburg just signed a 1 year deal with Colorado

I have a feeling Huet will be traded to Tampa along with Ryder for Richards. I hope it's true,because Huet is a UFA and unless he's traded, we'll lose him for nothing. I heard that Ottawa is willing to give up Vermette to Atlanta for Hossa. If we offer Higgins, Higgins has more goals than Vermette this year and past 2 seasons. But I don't think Gainey is willing to part with Higgins. maybe Ryder, Grabovski, Yemelin and a pick for Hossa and Recchi? Tanguay has waived his NTC, but to which team? would be great if we could get 2 scoring wingers, or winger and centerman. God forbid Ottawa gets Hossa; it would be a real downer for habs fans.

It's time for this team to get out of the PACIFIST mode and start performing like WARRIORS!
