You mean;

A guy who was drafted in 2004 (Emelin), a forward we got back in exchange for a better hockey player that we could have traded for even more had we waited before trading him (Bourque), an obvious decision (Price), a guy who is now known for being part of the most lopsided deal of the year (Cole) in our advantage, a guy signed by Gainey in 2007 (Desharnais), a d-man who played 19 games this season (Diaz), a guy who was signed by Gainey, and then re-signed by Bergevin (Moen), and the second round picks he got back after years of trading them away for patch jobs?

Yeah. Definitely deserves tons of credit for building this success story the Habs have been this season!
