A serious person, a person who understands the GAME of hocky, someone with issues in their life more important that pro sports does not count on an honest interview with the GM/coach or players to make their life complete, or even to form an opinion of their own.

This is a hockey issue which I can get behind.

I do not think this is true or an issue.

I do not think that these signings are ever touted as a solution to all the problems by team management. That is more of a slanted perception by fans.

Love him or hate him, this issue was addressed this off season, as well as since the season started and injuries piled up.

Gritty players yes. Enforcers, no.

Fans need to start acting like a bunch of whiny girls. "playing fans for fools".... get over yourself. If you do not enjoy pro-hockey, do something else with your money and time. Vote with your wallet.

The other tradition the Habs have WAS winning. Since the fans no longer concern themselves with winning, well... at least we can get more GREAT interviews with players and coaches!!!
