Well there are ways around that like the injury list and there are always injuries. Like Gallagher says he'll be listening and playing, using the tips he gets from Briere. Having players like Gagne and Morrow as well to pass on their knowledge to our youngsters, can only be a good thing. The Habs can carry a couple more players with the injuries they always seem to get and veterans like them for $1 mil / season. While slowly recovering the vets can spot in back and forth teaching and making sure to stay in shape for the playoffs.

It's the prospect thread and the players I'm talking about will be their (prospects) teachers, hopefully. When the Habs were winning SC's in the past, their veterans quite often sat out for a few games at Christmas and helped with the young guns. The concept of having these players on injured reserve and helping teach at $1 mil per season, just seems like good business. When the trade deadline is looming would be about the right time for them to get serious icetime to be ready for a long playoff run. Sorry about ruining your day, I guess not everyone's perfect like you.
