Atlanta may have not got the best return for Marian Hossa, but they got something for him.

In our team, Souray was a star player, who we knew wasn't going to come back, we weren't going to do anything in the play-offs, and we got nothing for him.
What did New Jersey get for Scott Niedermayer ? How about Brian Rafalski ? Yeah, it's not just Montréal who drafts, grooms and then loses their players. It happens to every team.

Also, Montréal fans and the higher up want playoffs, while teams like LA are complacent with finishing in the bottom for 8 years.

They've waited 8 years without the playoffs to finally have a stockpile of good players. Do you really think Montréal could go like that without a riot ?

Would have, could have and should have mean nothing. We could have traded Roy before he played that infamous game in Detroit and got a large, large return.

See, that's stupid and so is speculating about the past.
