I don't buy it. Show me the numbers.
With the exception of Kostitsyn, most of the players you cite played in less than half the Habs games. It was a collective team malaise not bourne on the shoulders of a few.
Montreal was a 25th ranked PP i believe prior to the acquisition and finished 28th. Its not a small drop off but they did drop relative to the league.
The point was you say Kaberle can contribute, and what he can contribute is to a piss poor team. If you want your team better, you need better players. Kaberle is just one of many of these players you need to improve on. Just cause he contributed a little bit of offense on a crap team, it doesnt mean he was good.
