Yours truly, Carbo.
That being said, Gainey never showed much trust by giving him 1year deals.
Is this the ''let's go whine about the players let go by Gainey that are doing well'' thread?
We had Ryder in our line up last year and I didn't hear too many people whine about him signing in Boston last summer.
If anything, most people were laughing at his contract deal.
Like I also mentioned, Habs didn't have confidence in him by the contracts they were giving him. So he had lost confidence in them as well. As far as his signing with Boston, sorry but I read a whole lot of "I won't be surprised with Julien if he goes back in scoring 30 goals". Contract looked bad, and might look bad next year or the year after when he settles, but then, we can't tell for sure 'cause since he joined the Habs, that's the first time that a team shows that they're having confidence in him.
At one point, people should start reconizing that having confidence plays a whole lot in how a player plays.
