You are talking about everything he's done...all the things he's been through , after everything he's given for this team...well , what are you talking about exactly ? Heart and soul of the team ? effort ? If the Habs would retire his jersey for that , they would have to retired 15-20 jersey before his one .
Dude, you're ignoring everything I'm saying. I already said he wasn't as good as the old players of the past. But, winning a cup is different now. The game is different, you won't see the same team winning a cup over and over.
Saku is a special case. I said that IF HE CAN WIN A CUP, he deserves to be up there. After the cancer, after the career threatening injuries and after leading this team through it's darkest times, IF HE CAN LEAD THE TEAM TO A CUP, he deserves to be up there. He's a special case. There's nobody you can compare him to.
Yours in Christ,
