Can you remind me who's the goalie of the day in the NHL now??..and which team is he playing for??
Funny how this is EXACTLY the same thing going on with Sergei.
It's in the Habs very best interest to squash the beef with this kid. He could be the solution we can't seem to find to stabilize our top 6.
It would also be a huge mistake to trade either of the bro without having given them a fair chance to play together. There's undeniable chemistry and both of them have great raw talent. Pairing them along side a hot Plekanec should be a project in the very near future.
With D'Ago already out, Gionta possibly out as well, With little production coming from Lats, Laps, MaxPac and A.Kost, we don't have much liberty. On top of that, Laraque is injured so even he can't fill up a spot and then you have a guy like Stewart that is playing quite badly with his stupid penalties.
You would suggest we keep S.Kost (the sole NHL ready player in AHL) down out of principle or ego???...All this at the cost of losing games??..
S.Kost absolutely needs to be called up if Gionta does indeed go down. It'd be extremely stupid if we didn't give him a shot.
Hey fanboy, the difference is Sergei played A LOT last season, and stunk it up all over the ice. He was not demonstrating anything near NHL calibre play last year or in pre-season.
