Happy new year to all! I am a regular reader on this web site however I do not post many comments due to time constraints. Mike I read your blogs regularly and I am too very frustrated with the play of the Montreal Canadiens. Last year while I was getting married our beloved Canadiens announced the signing of Markov for three years 5.75 mil/season! What a great wedding present! All this criticism is not fair to our players. Think about what Pierre Gauthier and staff is asking our team to do: They ask each player to give 150% day in and day out. By the way these same players have to go up against others who are atleast 5-7 inches taller and weigh between 25 - 40lbs more. It's tough to win puck battles and ultimately: GAMES. I resent what management has done to this team. Doesn't management know what type of team to build to be successful in this league? Every team that has beaten us or come close has size, speed and depth. We seem to go against the grain on this philosophy by awarding huge contracts to smaller players and we have many of them. I don't think the best teams in the league hand out contracts to players who are hurt and have played an estimated 35 games over the past two seasons. I also don't think they award patience to a player making 7.35/mil a season, only to produce 20 - 30 points. Mike, finally, I hope the sports media in Montreal switches their focus from blaming the players (with a lack of size, weight, skill...) and switches it to Management. It's them who need to start answering the tough questions...not the coaching staff nor our players.

Good day all! does anybody have a good hockey website to check on the latest rumors? The fourth period is reporting that the Canadians are still shopping around for more players and are trying to get rid of Spacek...and obviously the "GOAT".

I totally agree with you Auscan. I think Wiz can give us an edge especially against those f-ing Bruins.

We all saw the games last year...I remember Wiz just fitting in real nice with our lineup. He's got that attitude that we need and he backs up his smack and he was awesome for a long stretch on the power play. I honestly thought we would bring back both Gorges and Wis and try to deal Markov for some picks...but I am not a GM I guess
