Completely disagree - Habs had a totally crap season, but in terms of the collective of players, they were nowhere near as poor as their 15th place finish. A malaise permeated the team due to poor leadership (starting with management). We have every reason to believe they can turn it around in 12-13 with new leaders and a tougher support crew.
p.s. I can't see Bergevin committing an NHL roster spot for Gomez given his quick disposal of Darche who provided a marginally better return on investment for his roster spot. The team is better served by allocating a spot to a young player with upside, or another more effective FA.
