Yeah, really not fair. Lets face it, while some guys hang them up willingly, lots of others want to keep playing the game they love and get paid handsomely to do it, and you cant blame them.

Now Cubes really has played too much and shouldn't have, but that is not his fault, its MT and/or MBs fault. But because he has, because hes gotten PP time, and because he isn't good enough to be doing so he incurs our wrath. Hey, this guy is a warrior who gives it everything he has every shift and stands up for his teammates, always has. MB wanted character and Cubes has it.

One of the most embarrassing things Habs fans ever did was that treatment of Brisbois, who was cast as a top pairing d-man because we had nobody else, even though he wasn't remotely close to being a top pairing player. Again, not the mans fault, it was the organizations.

So don't blame Cubes if MB offers him a contract and he accepts it. I thank Cubes for his work and dedication but we have 3 guys anyway in Beaulieu, Tinordi and Pateryn that should all be getting ice time at the NHL level this year and certainly a lot more next year. Great that Beulieu is up but a guy like Pateryn needs to be rewarded here and we need to see how he looks.
