Amazing how quickly people forget (or conveniently omit) the reality that we barely even made the playoffs that year, squeaking in on the last weekend as much thanks to other teams falling short as to our own "success".

A year later, 6th place / first round exit,
a year after that, out of the playoffs heading into December.

All of this, with a cap spending team that went out and spent like crazy to bring in talent/cup experience for him to work with.

How the same posters can on the one hand argue that gainey/Gauthier did a good job managing the team, while at the same time praising JM, is beyond incomprehensible.

8th, 8th, 6th, 15th... That's the progression since the 08 fluke run to the conference title.

Columbus might celebrate that, but in a market like montreal that rightfully led to mass firings.

Two upset 7 game series (on the backs of 2 of the best individual playoff performances in history) and getting completely blown out of the conference finals doesn't obscure the failure, except with the committed kool aid bunch
