Do you think we could have get a player like Backes or anything close to that? Get real.

Your last sentence is exactly why this team has been miserable for many years. If a young player doesn't get 30 goals+ after his first 2 years in Montreal, he's nothing special or like you said, doesn't GET the love so you want him gone.
Exactly, huge lack of patience, remember when Pacioretty was a bust?
Even the example you used, Backes, was far from being what he is now at 22.

Also future captain
