At least you guys have something to talk about, and overall, I think the Habs made some positive moves.

I do think it's strange that BG went after all these small guys, but on balance, I think the Habs will be an improved team. I especially like the potential of the Gomez-Cammi combination. I think he overpaid Gionta, but we'll see.
I don't think Gainey 'went after small guys'. I think he went after the skilled guys available on the market. If he could pick and choose, I think he might have picked Gaborik over Gionta (as an example), but these are the guys that wanted to play in MTL and who Gainey signed.
