From the last thread that was closed......

So what you're saying is that every team, except for Boston, should let all of there UFAs walk because, in essence, they've all failed? Furthermore, a rational human being can extrapolate that now all UFAs except for Tomas Kaberle, Shane Hnidy and Michael Ryder have been rendered obsolete considering they are all failures.

We'd better hurry and call the KHL then!

P.S. Do you see how ridiculous that logic is?

Hockey is not a zero sum game. There is no "if you lose then you get rid of all of your UFA".

But there is a concept called improving your roster to have a better shot at winning the one and only Cup.

Gill, Spacek and Hamrlik were all GREAT players at one time. But like everything in life, they have gotten older. Hockey is a fast game. There are only a handful of players in the NHL who have been genetically gifted to continue to excel in their late 30's early 40's. Gill, Spacek and Hamrlik are not included in that group.

Time for them to go or again face disappointment during the playoffs (if we indeed reach them). The cry from the crowd was that the Canadiens needed faster and stronger DMen.

Now we are reduced to trying to rationalize why Hamrlik should possibly be on the roster.

A lot of Canadiens fans have simply grown accustomed to accepting mediocrity. And PG is leading the charge!!!!
