I'm not mad at Gainey for Brière, Smyth, Souray, etc…he did everything he could. But I would have no problem at all with Gainey, standing in front of the medias saying: "Look, we tried, and it didn't work. We chose not to overspend to get someone via free agency, and we'll try again next year."
You can say whatever you want, that we're not loyal fans, or that we're the reason why UFA don't wanna come here, the fact remains; fans like you are the reason why Gainey signed Harmlik to that contract, not us. Fans like you are the reason why Gainey decided not to deal Souray at the deadline. Because we're not blinded by our desire to get a "name" in Montreal. We're just tired to fight, year after year, for a playoff spot. I don't care about not making the playoffs 5 years in a row if we can finally build this team.
Hamrlik is a "PR Signing" so that fans like you can keep saying: "Bob did what he could do to improve the team, so why do you complain" !
The fans that are *****in' about Gainey are actually way more patient than those who are still rooting for him. Because we actually wouldn't mind to wait a few years to finally be great again. But still, you guys keep on thinking that we wanted Gainey to do more in order to win now.
MOST OF US DIDN'T WANT BRIÈRE…MOST OF US DIDN'T WANT GOMEZ…MOST OF US DIDN'T WANT SOURAY BACK.
So stop telling us that his job ain't easy, we know that. We just have two different opinions on what it takes to get there. Is that so freakin' terrible ?!?
(Sorry if that came out very aggressive, but I'm just very tired to be blamed for stating my opinions and views on the team and the management.)]]>
