    Beg to differ. Leblance should never have been drafted by the Habs . You knew from the get go this guy was misisng something. He will play but be sure it will be in the minors or in Europe. Never saw anything there that indicated he was NHL calibre. The pick was flat out wrong. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 'This organization going forward must set its sights on competing for the game’s ultimate prize every season — and no lesser standard should be accepted.' —Geoff Molson, Canadiens owner and president

    Not a bad idea BJ. This character theme is way overused. There are enough vets in there to fill the void. Almost any guy they Habs have picked up over the years have contributed as much as Gio has . Think Halpern, Dominic Moore , Tom the bomb..So the guys that bring energy and some grit and can kill penalties ( and are decent face-off guys and have a specific role to play are out there but you dont have to pay 5 mil and they actually might win puck battles) Gio has been rendered a shadow of his former self and the injuries to his bicep twice has made his shot even less threatening. It's time to get younger and find speed. Even if the Habs had gotten past the Rangers they may have been overly reliant on goaltending. It would be nice to see some bigger forwards that have speed to compliment that size impose a style on the opposition for once. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 'This organization going forward must set its sights on competing for the game’s ultimate prize every season — and no lesser standard should be accepted.' —Geoff Molson, Canadiens owner and president

    Dont understand how anyone can advocate retaining Gionta. This guy played a decent role on the PK but failed to contribute in any meaningful way on the score sheet. So many failed attempts to finish. For the Habs to bring him back because he is a character guy would be silly. He was an ok captain if not good. I would love to see them upgrade his position and integrate some youth. Someone with even a marginally finish with some speed and size can full fill the role Gio found himself in. I would keep Bouilon as a depth guy only if he signs for the min. Weaver is a character guy who really enjoys playing in Montreal and he Habs would do well to sign him and Weaver. These are key guys that you can grind out wins with. The CH stil have to find a way to upgrade skill and speed in the top nine. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 'This organization going forward must set its sights on competing for the game’s ultimate prize every season — and no lesser standard should be accepted.' —Geoff Molson, Canadiens owner and president

    Petty? PrimeTime you tend to come out with so many assenine comments. Paying Briere and Gio what they were paid was folly given their expected contributions. Gio is nothing special. He served them well to bring them back is not really a step forward. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 'This organization going forward must set its sights on competing for the game’s ultimate prize every season — and no lesser standard should be accepted.' —Geoff Molson, Canadiens owner and president

    Saw the scrum with Vanek . He played like he wanted to get home. The whole interview smells. Its awkward. I wanna go somewhere to win. Of course he does but with minimum effort. This guy looks like a lazy house league hockey player that likes to clean up the easy goals. Great hands. Work ethic. Not so much. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 'This organization going forward must set its sights on competing for the game’s ultimate prize every season — and no lesser standard should be accepted.' —Geoff Molson, Canadiens owner and president
