Chimera On The Block?

Aaron Portzline

Are the Habs better or worse?

Now that I think Gainey is done, I’m having a hard time trying to decide if the Canadiens are any better.

First I will start with the forwards, if you look at the names Cammalleri for Tanguay (adv Cammalleri), Gomez for Koivu (equal), Kostopoulos for Moen (equal), and Gionta for Kovalev (Advantage Kovalev). Along with who has left, Higgins, Lang, and Dandeneault. I think that this years forwards may not be able to score like last years unless kids like Stewart, Chipchura, Latendresse, S Kostitsyn, and D’Agostini can pick it up this year. So in my opinion our forwards are a downgrade this year.
