We don't play the sort of game to rely on two-three dominant players and hope the rest sticks together. That's why we don't have a Lecavalier playing 35 minutes a game. We balance our lines out. That's been the Canadiens style for... a very long time. We even did it in the 70s. A lot of historians have said that on a different team, Guy Lafleur would have scored even more points, but Bowman balanced the lines out.

We play a team game, which ensures if consistency is lost on someone, there is always another player to pick up the pace. That's why we're not at the bottom of the standings for losing Koivu, Higgins and Tanguay.
