Hab fans on this board are negative about almost every trade

They post: He's too slow, or he doesn't know how to defend, or he's too old, or he wants too much, or he's a wimp, or he's a coach killer, or he smokes opium through a water pipe, blah blah blah. It seems that the only ones who approach perfection are Habs prospects--until they show up to play in Montréal and the fans turn on them.

Potential is worth more than proven players; it's in the HF Gospel.
