The Habs are imploding

I have been a fan of the Montreal Canadiens since I was born. I have never seen the insanity going on here. First every one complaining about Gainey not talking, the lack of effort on the ice. Now super cancer Kovalev comes out and slams the whole team. Saying that the rookies are acting like vetrans and not listening, he is also saying that Carbo doesen’t like russians. Well im happy that the young kids are stepping up and trying to take leadership, cause it seems like the vetrans aren’t. I don’t think Carbo hates russians, but I do think he hates lazy players ie: Kovalev,Samsonov,Markov. Kovalev’s act has run thin. He’s not the player he once was, and I think he’s realizing that now. he’s got to go. Trade him, waive him, realease him. If no one picks him up, don’t send him to Hamilton, cause he will just infect our young players there. Tell him to just stay home. I have never seen this kinda of thing happen in Montreal. This is the most storied franchise in hockey, and it’s sad to see what has become of it. People complain that no UFA’s want to come here, well I can’t say I blame them. Bob has to pull up his slacks and do something. This franchise is in serious need of clean up. Koivu: Has to go, he’s not showing any leadership when the team needs it most Ryder: Too streaky, doesen’t performe on a regular basis. Kovalev: CANCER Samsonov: Doesen’t care Dandenault: Multiple cup winner, well it doesen’t seem like it Bouillion: Not playing physical anymore Come on HABS fans what do you think should happen ?????

    I think Habs fans should calm down.  The team isn't imploding.  It imploded (past tense).  Management watched the team fall from fourth place to 9th place without reacting.  This is the spillover from the fall from grace.  The team can continue to be average for as long as fans flock to their games.  I see no reason to believe Gainey will do anything more drastic than cash his paycheck.

    Any GM who builds a first line around Saku Koivu has only a passing interest in winning or has zero alternatives.  If Gainey doesn't care about winning then you are spitting in the wind.  If Gainey has no alternatives then he's just tired of spitting in the wind.  Either way, Montreal will win when they can put together a first line that has complementary skillsets more suited to the post lockout NHL. 

    The team has some degree of respectibility and depth.  Gainey's trades and signings generally hurt the team as much as help it.  He is best off doing nothing and waiting the 3-4 years until most of the semi-decent draft choices are contributing.  I think there is a slim but actual possibility this team will be more competitive in a few years. 

    In the meantime, management doesn't care and neither should you.

    Word out of L.A. is the Kings dumped captain Mattias Norstrom so they can make a serious run at free-agent-to-be Sheldon Souray, whose ex-wife, actress Angelica Bridges, and daughter live there. Bridges is expecting the couple's second child in May and Souray hopes the two can reconcile.

    souray and jack johnson on the l.a. blueline would be pretty sweet. if that is, johnson decides to play, and if l.a. gets souray at the end of the season
