I just found this gem. This is, hands down, the best line ever written:

Quote:

Saku Koivu, Mark Recchi, Benoit Brunet, and Sebastien Bordeleau have all
been very impressive this pre-season. I gotta tell you, I love Benoit
Brunet. He leads the team in scoring while being a sparkplug for the
Canadiens every night. He is so good
Quote:

Jason Ward, straight out
of junior, sure didn't look it when he beat the defenseman and deked out
Mike Richter on his first shift. He looks like quite a steal getting picked
11th overall when he was rated at 4th overall by CSB.
HAHAHAHAHHHAHHA

The 97/98 habs were fun. Corson-Koivu-Recchi line was great. This leads to the question, why doesn't this guy have corson in his potential lines?

In fairness, Brunet did have some moments and a few scoring streaks that were impressive, he was just injured so much but that kind of left the door open for him too because you never got to see what he was fully capable of, he did eventually slow down though. Guess you had to be there.

No, I remember him being a decent streaky player... but still, saying he is "so good"?

A light breeze would injury that guy.

We had decent team that year, got to second round of playoffs I believe. Andy Moog, Recchi, Damphousse,etc... In his first camp Jason Ward look like he was going to be a star.

I was totally oblivious to hockey in 97-98.

99-00 is when I saw the light.

I thought we had a pretty strong team that year. Our offense was pretty good. Defence was average but you had several players like Malakhov and Manson who could be wonderful defenders at times.

Oh yeah, I don't agree with that, but I don't think he was that bad and i think the taste is getting more bitter from listening to him talk all the time.

And I didn't mean guess you had to be there condescendingly, it sounded like that when I read it again. Haha, you get props my boutique working Habs lover!
