One must not underestimate the value of a hard-working productive veteran especially considering the relative youth and inexperience among the Canadiens' core players.
Ok, how are you a Leafs fan with such intelligent thought and analysis? You understand Gionta's value to our team better than fart too many of our own supposed "fans". Thank you for bringing such a great perspective to this idiotic thread.
People should stop trying to get rid of Gionta. He is a 20-28 goal, 40-50 point producing heart and soul winger who fights hard, plays with an edge, and leads by example. When he and Markov were out last year it brutally hurt our team. Now we have him and Markov back to lead the great young core we have, and people want more shiny new toys rather than understanding the value we actually have in our established veterans. *********g pathetic. I wish more people on this site had a clue as to what is necessary for a Cup run. Hint: it is not 2nd round picks en masse.
