Blind Gardien - Holik can be a great intimidating presence when he wants to be. I don't think he'd be good for the Canadiens, though. He was far too outspoken with the New York media, criticizing his fellow team members, making his efforts to motivate the Rangers backfire. In general he just made a lot of people mad. (In New York AND in Jersey!) There has also been a lot of speculation that he was a VERY divisive force in the locker room, contributing to Rangers not being able to get it together as a team. Also, if I remeber correctly, he has a multi-year $45 million contract. If the Canadiens acquired him, I don't think they'd have the budget to keep Kovalev, who has proven himself as a playoff performer and is a good team guy.
