Yes, I know anyone can look good in a 3-4 minute highlight video, but I though some people may want to see McCarron's from last season. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIVeRm6lJR8

Patrick Roy is the recent "fresh blood". Keep in mind that players waited decades to have their numbers retired. I also don't want to see numbers up there that shouldn't be just because we want some "fresh blood".

Nope. Blake, Lemaire, Shutt, Durnan, and so many names to consider in over 100 years of the Habs. Can't retire them all unfortunately. One could argue, there would be others to be considered before him. If it was up to me, Blake's number would be next.
- Comment on Former Hab Ryan White looking for a new team (2014-07-05 07:46:56)
I hope White goes out doing one last thing in Habland: Topping his own post count on HiO from last summer. Good luck to him. I don't recall ever really complaining about him on the fourth line and his salary was in line with his role. Hope he finds work elsewhere.

In terms of just point production, we shouldn't have to be too optimistic for him to have at least as many points as least season. He did seem to mail it in at times last year, but in other games, he hit posts or led the team in shots but came out empty handed. The wild card seems to go back to juniors with Rene. Size and talent, but which guy shows up? The one thing I have read that previous coaches have said, is he often showed up in big games. If he is more productive than last year in the regular season next year, and is as equally as much a presence in the playoffs (as the last two appearances), I will be happy. I guess that is what you get for the cap hit. If he was consistent, he would be getting paid!!

Wow-he did all that while only playing in 22 games. Impressive.

Ott is an in your face, antagonizes you, type of player. He has licked a players visor (sorry, but that was weird). Can be a P&*^$ to play against. BUT-he is not a very good fighter
