Good read. Some of the stuff in there I took with a grain of salt, though.
Not because Gary Joyce is one of those (I loved his book on the draft), but because it seems the comparative point to what the Habs should be is probably the greatest dynasty in the history of hockey.
It seems he's channelling a bit too much what the complaints are and the feedback to the situation is.
There's no arguing though, that the Habs have been a shell of what they should've been for the past 20-some years (the criticism of the post-70's Habs seems a bit much to be honest).
Not to mention the last player to ever seem worthy of the 'Hab' tag was Koivu (no matter what wrinkles people could find), and we're not exactly talking Guy Lafleur or The Rocket caliber player. And he was sent packing with little to no remorse once his contract ended.
