Having said that , Darche does give it his all, a good guy ,but Montreal used this guy like a 5 million dollar man making 700,000.He played top lines in playoffs,in final mins of games down 1 goal! he played top line power play.Mind blowing misuse of a player.Montreal had a big hole in top 6 and tried to fill it with a career AHLer,not just for weeks, but for years...lol
It came to a boiling point when this year Jacques Martin was using Darche again on the pp over Eric Cole our new UFA signing,. A female reporter confronted Martin on this ,*(would Cole be a better option than Darche on PP?)and he sorta blew up at her claiming Darche was a better option?lol
To sum this all up , he got his first ever one way deal LAST YEAR, and on the one way deal he got 12 pts in 61 games missed last 21 with a concussion..Now feels he worth a one way again?
