MY GOD our management has been incompetent for so long.

If the Habs refuse to give him a one-year deal, and no one in the whole league is making an offer sheet, then we have a Tim Raines situation, and Don Meehan and Donald Fehr should file a grievance.

This is now on Geoff Molson to fix.
The team shouldn't let it go that far. I can't believe it's gone as far as it has.

Komi was great. Then he got beat up by Lucic and was never, ever the same. There was a marked difference from that point on.

He came back and was horrible. Didn't have the edge anymore and just looked whipped. I was actually expecting a bounce back year from him and then he signed with the Leafs. I remember thinking how brutal it was that we let him walk away but in retrospect it turned out to be a blessing.

Should've revamped back in '07. Koivu, Souray... it hurts just to think about it. All the players we let walk away for zero. We should be so much further ahead than we are.
