Under Gainey's leadership the habs are winning on the ice with young home grown talent, have as stockpile of prospects and pretty much all our picks (missing some mid rounders this year, have an extra 2nd next). He has cap room to spare is not facing a single key UFA this summer (sorry Streit and Ryder aren't core to me.)
Good time to be a habs fan.
It is indeed a great time to be a Habfan. We have like 12 players under the age of 26 producing on a regular basis, a number of players in the AHL who will be pushing for a spot next year, a plethora of prospects in the NCAA/CHL/Europe, and a solid management staff. I hope Gainey turns into our Lamoriello/Holland and stays here for a very long time.
