What a dilemma to have, a young centreman which such talent, that you can let develop before he has to play center. Any team would love to be in that situation.

I have confidence in Bergevin, generally his trades seem to be good. Bourque was like a parade of other Habs signings (I am looking at you B Pouliot) that had awesome potential but no drive. If the goat were still GM I would have no confidence.

TSN picked the Habs 5th and out of the playoffs. Shocker.

I also hope that Koivu has his number retired someday. I am not convinced it will happen, but I would support it. BUT, you can't stop a kid from taking a number on speculation that it would be retired someday. Ryan O'Byrne gave up number 3 to have it retired for Butch Bouchard. That did not take anything away from Bouchard and his contribution. Plus this kid Gallagher showed enough respect to give up 73 to Ryder. It appears to me he is a level-headed kid.

Are you including his one NHL game in that "multi-decade" career?

I would have agreed that Eliot Freidman was the "smartest" guy on HNIC (equivalent to being the fastest turtle) until a couple of weeks ago. It was the first night Montreal jumped into first place. One of the other idiots mentioned the standings and Freidman jumped in to defend the Broons by saying that, "Yes but Boston has two games in hand and is CLEARLY the best team in the conference." It must have been the 90 seconds in the third period against Montreal when the scored two goals to defeat the Habs 2 - 1. And, oh yeah, everyone knows teams will have played more or less games throughout the season, down to the final day. You don't get credit for games you haven't won yet. That felt good.

C'mon guys. You are not this bad. This is where the Leafs belong. NO TANKING - show a little pride.

No, but it sucks that Gomez is being paid $7 million. I see his value, it just doesn't match his salary.

Those twits at TSN were showing a shot of PK spitting and Del Zotto skating by the bench. They said, "Did Subban spit at Del Zotto?" Why do they make this crap up? Del Zotto didn't know what they were talking about.
