I'm sick and tired of Habs fans in general for the very same reasons.

This sort of mentality is also opposite from seeing things for what they are. That a player's performance is a result of his immediate environment, but a team's performance is the result of many good players mixing into a good environment.

Who's to say a guy like Markov couldn't have had a similar career to what Lidstrom had if he played in his place with the same environment, the same players. Who's to say how McDonaugh would've responded playing in the Habs environment last season instead of getting shifts with one of the best two-way centers in the league and Marian Gaborik.

People are way too hung up on immediate individual performance. Most people can't see the big picture.
