    I've watched the Habs for 40+ years. We have to remember that to the rather small french enclave in the Americas that is Quebec looks to the Canadiens as a source of pride and identity. The team has slowly eroded it's french factor over the years for a variety of reasons. This erosion should be reveresed within reason and that starts with effective scouting in the province. It's a burden to the Habs organization but it is a profitable organization that could expend the resources if the commitment is there. I dismiss the political groups and francophone press's complaints about Cunneyworth because their motivation is, for the most part, pure self interest.

    while most folk love skillsie's character he is mostly a liability on defence. its time for Mtl to outgrow him. Great guy is Gill but restricting the development of Emelin for a team that has no aspirations of Stanley Cup glory. You cannot spend your way out of recession or borrow your way out of debt

    I love reading Todd's articles. He rarely leaves one feeling indifferent after having read a piece of his work. And I think we'd agree that this is why the Gazette has hired him. His writing is a change of pace from the typical, an everyman emotional point of view. You cannot spend your way out of recession or borrow your way out of debt

    I would really like to see Kostitsyn, Eller and Leblanc be given a chance to compete for 5 games. You cannot spend your way out of recession or borrow your way out of debt

    1. No, his return off of the 1st injury demonstrated the weakness of recovery ability 2. If numbered means less than 120 games 3. Impossible to predict, a lot of individualism on this squad already 4. He has been given an impossible task, he is trying to help 5.

    Completely agree. I am pleasantly suprised with Gill's defensive work on the PK but other than that he remains a liability. Albeit a pleasant player friendly liability. Campoli back, Hal sits and Emelin can continue to develop and keep opposing fwd's honest. However it could be said that J Martin is risk adverse so it is unlikely that Hal sits.

    Weber has had a few bad games lately but with barely 76 NHL games under his belt the expectations seem to be too high. He appears to be smart enough, passes intelligently and has a good shot. But being a liteweight amongst a troupe of liteweight defence (Emelin excluded) is not easy work. Add to that undersized forwards and you have a cocktail mix that makes playing in the defensive zone especially difficult. You cannot spend your way out of recession or borrow your way out of debt

    White hits just about everything that moves and can drop gloves if necessary. His energy is required to have a 4th line that can forecheck aggressively. Mtl has to have a 4th line play a few more minutes to give the smaller forwards on lines 1-3 a break. IMHO You cannot spend your way out of recession or borrow your way out of debt

    Gomez has nowhere to go but down. His body is aging which is part of the reason he doesn't compete that hard in the corners or in front of the net until playoff time. What is frustrating to watch is the amount of ice time that Martin gives him in spite of the fact that he is consistently a liability in his own zone and therefore a poor example for the younger players on the team. Martin's refusal to play his 4th line as the games progressed is part of the reason the Habs lost to Boston. Martin wore down his first 3 lines and the 4th line didn't get the chance to add a more physical element to the Canadiens attack.
