Hindsight is always 20-20, but...

Watching these playoffs, it has been very painful:

1)To watch local product François Beauchemin thrive with Anaheim, after losing him for nothing due to our hockey gurus Gainey & Co. misinterpreting a technicality (looks like he could have been sent to Hamilton under a different provision during the lockout and would not have been lost, like tons of teams did with their key prospects, ex: Ottawa with Jason Spezza)

2)To watch defenseman Andrei Meszaros and power forward Wojtek Wolski thrive with Sens and Avs, while Kyle Chipchura,picked before them,is probably a couple of years in the AHL away from becoming a decent NHL plumber at best.

3)To watch power fowards Steve Bernier (another local product), Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry display star potential with Sharks and Ducks, while, according to our hockey gurus here, Andrei Kostsysnin, picked ahead of each three (not to mention Jeff Carter), is not good enough to dress for one playoff game on a weak offensive team that could not score more than one goal per game for its last 4 games.

All this while the whole world (except our hockey gurus and the Montreal fans who sit with their mouth wide open and gobble up whatever their gurus throw at them)knows our key problems are and have been for a long time that our Top 6 forwards are too small and that we lack depth on defense...
