Leave Gainey Alone
Ok, so Gainey didn’t land an amazing free agent. People really need to stop blaming him for it though. It is not his fault. There is talk of replacing Gainey and that is nuts! Gainey is the best thing to happen to this club. Yes he is very laid back but he is trying there it no doubt about it.
Big stars who don’t want to play here just can’t stand the pressure and in my mind aren’t big stars. Let the guys who want to play her have a shot. Anyone who wants to play in Montreal is ok in my books. Give them a shot and they will succeed, guranteed. Samsonov last year expressed no desire to play in Montreal, but Gainey signed him thinking he would work with Kovy, which on paper looks amazing. In reality though they are far to similar in personality to work together. In all honesty Yashin might be the guy to try for. If put in the right situation can be a dominant player. He will listen unlike samsonov. The Habs will make the playoffs this year mark my words, how far they can really go remains to be seen. The talent they have relies within, and there is no arguing that. Gainey has a lot of faith in the young talent coming up and most people should agree. We have a lot to look forward to. The only thing we truly need is a 2nd line center. I have all the faith in the world with Plecky, he still has a long way to go though. He honestly will likely be a number 2 center but i dont think that pressure should be put on him yet. Give Yashin that chance, she what he is really made of. Anyway thats just my opion. GO HABS GO!!!!
