So I often find myself wondering, why is #52 on the Habs?

The only reasons I find that are tangible is he's not going to complain when he's not in the lineup. Which to me, isn't a reason to keep a player.

Again, I don't mind Darche, I just fail to see what type of player he is...what's the difference between Mathieu Darche and Mike Glumac (who never got a shot, not that I care) for example?
That's a good question lol. Maybe his work ethic? his attitude with his teammates (always encouraging)? I don't mine having him on our team, honestly. The problem that I have is prefer him to Boyd...that's what I don't understand. Darche deserve his one way contract for all the hard work he had to go through his hole career. He now has 500K garanteed for this season and I'm happy for him, but JM has to realise that Boyd could bring to the team more than what Darche brings.

In other words, Darche as the 13th forward, I don't mine...but nothing more than that.
