That's why Koivu was loved in this city although he was, realistically speaking, a poor 1st liner (Not a knock on him, I loved him, but he wasn't the most skilled player in the league).
Kostitsyn wasn't lazy, he was dumb.

I guess everyone has their own opinion, but watching the Habs last year I saw many, many things wrong with them - and a lack of hard work wasn't really one of them. They were facing constant injuries, had a soft defense that without Markov and Hamrlik left only Subban and Gorges looking competent, and complete garbage on the wings after the DD line.

There's only one player out there who seemed to be dogging it regularly to me, and that was Cammalleri, and we were worse without him.
