In my personal opinion Hainsey will not end up being that good but Hossa still has a chance. Im not sure Komisarek is ready either, I think that he is taking Hainsey's spot because he is physically more mature then Hainsey. Ryder is good, he has good moves and likes to shoot. He is similar to Zednik and needs a setup man to complement his game. But suprisingly he does have a lot of assists. And Ribeiro is dynamite, he needs finishers too, he is same type of player as Koivu except much better one on one.

An organization like Montreal does not need all these young players. That will make the team worse. And a lot of people who say thata influx of young players will be good long term for Montreal. I disagree with that because how do we know the players are going to be sucessful. Having a few who are the best of the best of montreal prospects is good. Besides you cant give spots to people because of their potentiel or age, they have to be skilled and ready to play in tight checking NHL.
yes - i agree. play those who are ready to play... bring up dagenais, if he can score on the pp we'll all be better off...
