but that's ok, lets trade a 23 years old D for a cond. 7th, maybe we'll be lucky enough to draft a guy who'll play at least one NHL game with that pick
Yup, lets trade young players so we can play the Bouillon, St Denis and Nokelainen more... recipe for success I tell ya
for him to pick up game, he needs to play... and not play 5 games on the 4th line, then scratched for 8 and then play D for 3...
You mentioned selective memory, I believe you suffer from that too in this case.
You make it seem as if it was the Habs plan from day one to trade Lapierre, Latendresse, Ribeiro etc.
Some of these guys asked to be traded, some needed new scenery to continue to develop.
The Habs are guilty of not consistently getting the most out of the player movements, this we agree.
Weber reminds me of Jan Bulis. He looks great in selected situations once in a while, but over an extended period of time, they just will not flourish in the role they should have in a team (top half of the roster), yet they lack the attributes to play a more supporting/bottom of the roster role.
