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.
So true. It's not really that people see our prospect as "perfect" it's the «grass is always greener» syndrome. The only players on this team that don't suck is those that haven't played in the NHL yet.
Potential is worth more than proven players; it's in the HF Gospel.
