We don't have to emulate that team but it sure would be nice to have a couple more in the mold of Brandon Prust on the team. Tinordi will be a great addition and from what I've heard of Beaulieu he can handle himself. PK is a great hitter and we've get Emelin... that's pretty good.

Up front, we're still too small. That has to be fixed. And for Pete's sake get some guys who will go to the net. If Gallagher can do it, anyone can.

A combo of Gionta, DD, Gallagher (God bless him) and Pleks just won't cut it. We're getting there though. Galchenyuk is probably our number one for the future and at least he's 6 feet.
The Montreal Canadiens need to be the Montreal Canadiens again. It's that simple. We need to get back to what worked for us since the beginning of the franchise to 1990 or so. I'm talking about 80 Years of playing and be a certain way. We started to get softer and smaller as the 90s went by and we lost our identity and suddenly people started to think the Habs meant classy beautiful skaters. Hell even in the 93 cup run the Habs we had lost some of that grit, Roy saved our butts with a super-human effort.
