Habs need to rebuild? C'mon!

Just to clear out something I’ve heard too often recently…

The Habs definitely aren’t and don’t need to go in a rebuilding phasis! The rebuilding has been done through a more than decent drafting by Savard & Gainey. The youth is good and is coming soon. Sure they should continue such decent drafting, but if by rebuilding they mean spending a few years in the League’s dump to scrounge a few high draft picks (in other words, “pull a Penguin”), by no mean I think it is necessary.

I say bring the KGK Line next year in Montreal (or in the worst case in Hamilton) and start building chemistry between the Byelorussians right away, because they might bring offensive skills together for a long time (including all international competitions)…

Try to bring the two Russian towers in North America so they can learn the language and the different culture of hockey. I’m sure at least one of the two can become a regular Top-4 NHLer.

With the good young north-americans already playing (as well as Maxwell & White in the WHL), some being seen as potential leaders, the Habs could create a great and well-balanced mixture of nationalities for years to come…

I say bring Tretiak instead of Jarvis to assist Carbo and we’re in business! :-)

p.s. Sign Timonen this off-season if Sheldon wants to make a McCabe out of himself…
