Let's put it this way: when I proposed Zednik should be traded in the offseason, I don't recall any one person agreeing with me.

With that said, I still like the game Zednik brings. He's inconsistent and always has been, but he's strong along the boards, got a great work ethic off the ice and some outstanding natural lower body strength. Not bad defensively, either. Sure, he lacks creativity. In the past, Zednik's success has always been a result of hard work, strength and speed. Right now, he's not working so he's not having the level of success we expect.

It's that simple. There's bigger problems in Montreal (see: Audette, Perreault and co.) than Zednik right now. Stick either Ryder or Hossa with Koivu and Zednik and I think we'd see a strong line.
