I think that most Habs fans have to take a chill pill here.
Most Habs fans either LOVE or HATE a player and have no middle ground. I am in a small group of fans who realizes that their is a middle ground.
This is Gionta's fourth season in Montreal. His PPG have been .754, .561, .484 and now .500.
He may not be the biggest point producer anymore and he may be small in stature. What he makes up for is his defensive play and his hustle and his heart. He plays on the top line that matches up against the star players in the Eastern conference.
Someone can look it up and I may be proven wrong here but I will say this statement. No team has ever been a third of the way into the season and sitting in first place in their conference and traded away their captain.
Now I will say that his best days are behind him but I want him on this team. Maybe next year at the trade deadline if we are not in the playoff picture then he could be traded. If not then I say he finishes off this and next year with the Habs and becomes a UFA.
