As much as Bettman is trying to water down the league to mediocrity, even now only the teams with the best and most talented players wins. And you can't win if those players can't handle the "pressure" of the city but can play just like the fine skilled players they are elsewhere.
Well i also think that it is mismanagement too. But now. Yes just now are we seeing guys like Patches and DD come up and help out with the big club . I mean our player development isn't terrible we were able to have DD,Patches,Subban,Weber come up and play with the Habs. The problem in terms of management is that we waste the talent that they have by making Patches or DD play on the 3rd or 4th line and now just now are we realizing that that isn't a good way to develop a young offensive player. And JM keeps on thinking that it is a good idea to keep Picard in and sit Weber when Picard isn't going to be back with the Habs next year and Weber is not certainly going to play a #5-6 D man role in the future.
