Melanson is not assailable if you ask me. What he's done with goalies has been incredible. Look at Theodore after MTL, not better than he was at all in MTL. Look at Huet, not much better in Chicago, maybe a little below his performance in Habland. Garon is now on his third team in five years since we dealt him much to the chagrin of Pierre MacGuire I recall. The only guy he couldn't keep going strong was Theo but that was Theo's fault. Aebischer was a lost cause but even Danis seemed good with the Habs. If Halak leaves the Habs, odds are that he does not blossom from there. Now, as for skaters it appears we don't have a Melanson teaching them how to play effective hockey since a lot of our guys leave and find more success with newer surroundings.
