Well by that logic I guess Ryan White is more important to the Habs to because he's playing and... what? He's suspended for a game? Uh, well... nevermind.

I know you didn't mean to target my post specifically though and I wholeheartedly agree with you. There is positive criticism then there is outright bashing.

Just too bad that on these boards sometimes the second you bring up a point about a player you're labeled a hater. The polarization on here is crazy sometimes.
Markov had a great game last night but it was against a Panthers team that had played 3 games in 4 nights. Not really much of a test.

It's great that he played well but this is the first time since coming back that we've seen much from him. Let's see how he does for the rest of the year before giving him the Norris.

Second thing: trading Subban out of frustration is the worst move the Habs could make. It's all about getting, paying and keeping the best assets. Subban is an asset we need to keep. If we trade him because of yet another case of franchise ADHD, we may as well start kicking ourselves now.

That said, we have no idea how far apart the two sides are and what agendas are actually in play. Despite all his sound-bites to the contrary, it is possible PK secretly wants out.
Please don't say this. If PK is gone we're really messed up for the future. THAT would be the darkest day...
