He can, but we're 1 or 2 good moves away from getting a cup anyways, such as a gritty scoring winger (Rolston).

Big load. I'm not French Canadian so maybe I shouldn't voice my opinion about a delicate topic, but Montreal doesn't NEED a French Canadian. I couldn't give a rat's ass where a player is FROM, as long as he likes playing for the Habs and wants to win a cup with us.

The one remotely smart thing you've said so far.

Great idea! Let's destroy our cap space on ONE player. That seems to be working well for other teams that have attempted the same, such as Tampa Bay. Oh wait...

We are building a championship team, but if we blow 10 million a year for 12 years on Lecavalier, we're back to being mediocre, since we won't be able to keep a good chunk of our core, such as Komisarek, Markov, Plekanec, etc. Oh, and Koivu will be team captain until he retires. Sorry to disappoint you.

Another 5, 10, 20, 30 years for another local superstar.
Again, irrelevant. The importance of having a French Canadian leading the Habs to glory is overblown. If a guy can make the Habs succeed, it shouldn't matter one god damn where he's from.

I'm sure Vinny's in a huge hurry to avoid the hellhole of hot women in bikinis year round and no taxes to be under the watchful eye of the relentless Montreal media while giving up half his pay to taxes.
