I can't believe some of you guys! After all the hue and cry about our gnarled old vets and play the kids! Play the kids! You want to start sending the kids back to the farm? Six - count them! - 6 games into an 82 game season and already the youth movement proves no match for the lack of faith or patience of some fans. What were you expecting? That a team with four or five rookies on it and a bunch of primadonna vets - without their Captain no less - would be leading the league? Oh wait! They ARE doing that, aren't they?
Sure it's a temporary aberration, but it sure feels good, doesn't it?
Give the kids a break! They're all doing their best. Don't you think they feel the pressure, of what fans in Montreal expect of them, not to mention what their GM, coach and team mates do? We have a winning record so far. Our SOG average is amazing. Theo has already had one solid shutout. We beat Detroit! The system may not be perfect but it's getting better little by little every game. Brisebois and Souray have been terrific and we're scoring alot more goals than anybody ever expected! Everybody is working - nobody has been floating. Truth be told, I don't see a heckuva lot to complain about!
We're not going to be Cup contenders any time soon but as long as we're competitive and entertaining along the way, it'll be a vast improvement over the past five years!
Instead of dissing the kids, we ought to be supporting them. They're a big reason we're doing as well right now as we are! Go team!!!
