The Leafs had legitimate injuiry problems last year, comparing it to a flu bug is asinine
Koivu is talented? Did he really score 20 goals in 1998? Good for him. Our Captain scores 30 a year, every year, for over 10 years, maybe us Toronto fans set the bar a little higher when is our evaluation of talent. Koivu's too small (Martin St.Louis is small, Theo Fleury was small, that didn't hold them back, and you presume to lecture me on lame excuses, that's cute), bad luck (another awesome excuse) and has injuiry struggles (oh you can blame production woes on injuiry problems but the leafs can't). Koivu isn't a franchise player, you're kidding yourself if you think he is.
Only two players on the Habs with no heart? Please, Montreal is an entire team of floaters and marginal young talent. You admit your second line was shit, so they under performed, they lack heart….
Outside of Huet, Markov and Ryder Montreal has nothing going for them.]]>
Bru – we all know Crosby is good, we all know there's a damn good chance he's going to kill some of Greztky's records, we all know he's going to win many more awards…but he's 19 (20 in august) and you can't possibly try to say that he's a better Captain than sundin when you have nothing to back it up, you're ignoring Sundin's accomplishments and glorifying Crosby's. Just because the guy can score doesn't make him a better captain; you have to understand that and if you don't you've totally lost sight of true facts. You can't even say Crosby is a better captain the Jason Smith from Edmonton….scoring and leading a team are two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS.
I know what I'm about to say isn't fair but if you argue this your making yourself look silly, very very silly. Crosby hasn't captained even one NHL game and you're saying he's a better captain.]]>
