People who say they don't want either guy... I just don't understand. Same people who would have traded Guy Lafleur after his third season, I suppose.

Since when did the Habs become a super-sensitive organization that can't teach anything to a talented player? Why the hell were we able to get talent and teach them a thing or two about teamwork, intensity, loving the game, and now it's 2006 and we can't take one of the two top scoring centers in the game because or their work ethic/intensity/attitude (which is not unquestionably absent in the first case)???

Really? Gainey and Carbo aren't enough to instill this? That's just stupid.
Awesome point. Ask anyone in Habs management if they would "take a chance" on a 22 year-old with superstar potential and see what they say.
