Why the hell is the minute you make any comment that doesn't blow a Hab player up as the second coming of Jesus Christ you display an "anti-habs bias"?

Get a freakin' grip people. Sheldon Souray is decent defenseman. Sure, he's the best that Montreal has to offer right now. Big deal. Doesn't make him anything more than Montreal's best defenseman. Definitely doesn't make him worth one of the most dynamic players in the game, no matter how well he or how poorly Jagr is playing in the first dozen games of the young NHL season. If you offered both around the NHL there would be a lineup around the corner seeing what the cost of Jagr would be, and what type of deal could be struck. The lineup for Souray might be long enough to make it from Gainey's desk to the door five feet away. Souray is no star player, is not a player that every other team in the NHL does not already have on their existing roster. He's a hard working player that has found his groove on a team that is thin on the blueline for talent. Great for him, and great for Montreal fans. That sure a hell does not make him worth one of the best players in the game (and mentioned as one of the best in league history as well) no matter how poorly Jagr is playing, or how much his being paid. That's the cold harsh reality of the situation.
