    Krob, you make some good points and have a valid argument. While I don't see things as certainly as you do on this topic, I appreciate your logic and where you're coming from. - Honestly yours Twitter: @de_benny

    Truth be told, I see both sides on the argument. It would be nice if MM had a few points, and he probably should have a couple by now, BUT he still has time to rack some up, and like you said, how many points can we realistically expect from the guy. He's doing well at the job he was brought here to do, and his lack of point production so far is not the reason for any of our losses or poor play. When it comes to points, the PP is where our focus should be. - Honestly yours Twitter: @de_benny

    Gerry, I'm disappointed that you didn't use that opportunity to write "finish your Czech". A golden opportunity wasted, my friend. :-P CHeers bud. - Honestly yours Twitter: @de_benny

    I absolutely agree that age is a factor, especially for a player who played the style he did and with the injuries he sustained. But I also think it's more than just coincidence that the quality of his play depreciated since the lockout. Kudos to MB for recognizing that VERY early and trading him while he was still tradeable. Ryder didn't do that much for us, but at least we got rid of Cole's contract which would have hindered us on a more long-term basis. - Honestly yours Twitter: @de_benny

    Allow me to explain (rightly or wrongly) The Canadian media, especially here in Ontario where I reside, think the Leafs are the center of the hockey universe. Because of that, we get Leaf-crap stuffed down our throat all the time while hoping for some Habs coverage. When we do get some Habs coverage, its often biased negatively. I think Habs fans can sometimes be overly harsh in our criticisms of the Leafs, but maybe that's our way of counter-balancing all the leaf-blowing we are subjected to. I don't agree at all that Phaneuf is a good player and I honestly wouldn't want him on my team. Not at any salary, and certainly not at the salary and term he was given on his last contract. I do agree though that Kessel is an excellent goal scorer, and that JVR, Franson, and to a slightly lesser extent Bozack, are quality players. Here's the thing though, as soon as they start doing well, or some of their players go on a hot streak, they are suddenly anointed a great team and/or top echelon players, respectively. We know better of course, so it's only natural when we poke fun at Kessel's fitness or Dion's buffoonery. They seem to be a franchise that just can't ever get it all the way right, yet their fans and media would have everyone believe they are the 2nd coming. Oh, and they hate and chirp the Habs every chance they get, so F**K them! - Honestly yours Twitter: @de_benny

    That, and the fact he was approx. 40% of Gonchar's cap hit. ;) - Honestly yours Twitter: @de_benny
