there's a reason that every one of Grabovski, Lapierre, S.Kost, Latendresse, Ribiero, went on to have much better seasons IMMEDIATELY after leaving montreal, and that, latendresse aside, none have had any of these so-called "issues" in their new found homes.

combined, we have exactly ZERO to show for those 5 players... all 5 of them are still playing prominent/top-9 roles for their teams and only 1 of them is over 30.

Absolutely terrible asset management... hard to believe anyone still tries to rationalize it any other way... not sure if it's memory that's problematic, or just the lingering effects of an overdose on the gainey/gauthier kool-aid.
Ribeiro had issues... That guy was an embarrassment as far as I'm concerned and he's the one guy I didn't mind getting ripped off for. I was just glad we got rid of him.

Your main point is well taken though. Carry on...
