These types of false comparisons are actually a pet-peeve of mine. I HATE when people criticize today's Habs because they're not yesterday's Habs. Please, for godsakes, give the friggin' "Storied franchise" cliche a rest already!! Here's a clue: It's not the 1960s, the entire NHL is not the same and neither are the 30 salary-capped teams. Players today are not "Habs", "Red Wings" or "Bruins". They're millionaire temp-employees who will slap on any number of jerseys in their career if the contract fits.

Blaming the Habs for not continuing to be "Storied" is like blaming Obama for not being George Washington.
