Agreed...not to get into another debate here, but if Ryan McDonagh is what the Habs lost by trying to upgrade their center position, oh well...I can live with that.

As for the rest, I agree...make calculated risks, but is right now the time where the habs should be taking that risk?

When you step away from the current drama and performance of the team, I think from an organizational growth standpoint, the Habs have to be extremely happy with how the season has gone so far. The young players have really stepped in and claimed a spot on the habs and have had a say into where the habs are positionned this year, especially when you consider the Habs are missing their best and most influential player in Andrei Markov.

However, the veterans on this this team this year...have largely disapointed, they need more from not only Gomez, but Gionta, Cammalleri, and yes...even Plekanec.
