Lack of results!!! ha!!!

he has had amazing results, way beyond our expectations. One year, this one, is just a freak accident that is far from over! People underachieved or got injured. Out of his control. The roster is still among the best in the league and him putting trust in people is not a reason to bash him. Look at all the other teams that were in our position in 2003. Who amongst them, who were (like us) in a market that did not allow them to tank are better than us now? The work Gainey has done has resurrected us in this league of little parity. I really hope he doesn't leave and that he gets to see the fruits of his labour. All these 5 year plans and stuff, a stupid basis for analysis. Let's say you start drafting then, having somewhere around the 11th-12th pick (exception Price), it will take awhile to get the team you "built". His offseason aquisitions this season were very good (Laraque remains to be seen, but nobody was upset about it when it happened, and ultimately he didn't prevent us from getting anyone). Lang getting injured was the key factor in our season. He seemed to be able to get anyone going and most importantly kosty (our secondary scoring). Price's sophmore year was not such a surprise.

Again, the season is by no means over. It's just beginning. Do it for Saku and do it for Bob. Go habs go!
