Hi CJ, Your post brought me to a place where I believe this may the exact opposite of how I felt when Doug Gilmour joined the Habs. I went from deep seeded hatred and loathing to appreciating having him on our team to really loving what he brought at a time when his passion was desperately needed. Now i suspect that I will grow to hate young Ryan, the first time he pisses me off with some dirty move on one of our boys.

"with the impotent refs barely serving as witnesses to it all." This made me laugh and sadly it is accurate from my perspective. And I agree with you. I have long been a fan of Ryan White. He forgot that he was actually a good hockey player for a season or 2, and sadly by then he had lost the confidence of the current staff. I too am not convinced we have the muscle and aggression required heading into the season.

Last night was difficult - watched McDonagh play a (mostly) solid game then pined over Patrick during the Colorado game. long sigh... And for me, this is not an indictment of Therrien whose results speak for themselves it is simply stating my desire that Roy coach the Habs one day. I will always believe he would have been a better choice for developing our youth. But hey - who cares about that right now when we've got all these great guys right here to cheer for! Here's to big energy tonight and hopefully a lot of sound and inspired play.
