I also think we should focus more on the Detroit philosophy as opposed to Edmonton, of course. I initially came in criticizing silly ideas of trading away our defense and making Beaulieu and Tinordi play defense this/next season, and buying out Markov. I never directed these comments to anyone but Lafleur's Guy seemed to have been offended. But in the end we all have similar outlooks on the team, you're right.
We do have similar outlooks, I think that's because a consensus is emerging that this year's Habs are awful , and that they won't win anything in the near future.
