Not really fringe, but I always liked Donald Audette. Crafty guy when he was on, and he had a great playoff one year.

Well....he was once I realize that since I'm french, I was more thinking of frail instead of fringe. So by my definition he was.....but by the real definition, he's obviously not.

My bad...

Some players mentionned weren't fringe players at all. Zednik, Gilmour, Perrault, Keane? These guys were key contributors for the time they played here. Especially Keane and Zednik.

for me the answer is Oleg Petrov. You could argue he wasn't a fringe player, but I think he was, otherwise he would have staye din the league longer. The guy was all speed and all heart. Never shied away from the corners. If somehow we could have put Oleg Petrov into Chad Kilger's body we would have had one of the best players in the league.

I never get too mad at the players on the CH, I get disapointed but seldom mad, maybe on a team level, but not individual. When Laflamme was absymal game after game, got benched once, then said he was going to call his agent to discuss teh situation, I thought I was going to seek him out and kill him.

When you combine mediocrity with entitlement....

It seems like many have no idea what constitutes a fringe player. To me, it's someone that played at most 200 games in the NHL, was never assured of a spot in the starting lineup, and ended up being traded for a 5th round pick/future considerations/fringe prospect and/or retired/finished in the minors/Europe. So many of the players mentioned in this thread were solid NHLers for years

With that in mind, my favorite fringe Habs were Ed Ronan, Mario Roberge, and my favorite Habs backup ever: Pat Jablonski

Bonk wasn't a fringe player... he played an important role on this team.

To me, a fringe player is a part time player. A fringe player is not quite good enough to grab a full time role, or has trouble finding his niche.

I dont miss any fringe players, but I do kinda miss Robidas. He's turned into a pretty cerebral d-man. But I think we have a robidas in Josh Gorges now.

Murray Baron, because if anything bad happened on the ice I could always look to no36 and blame it on his ass.

Guys.... #1 goalies or D-men that played in the top 4, or players that consistently played on the top 3 lines are not fringe.

Because or else this would be an easy list to make: Lafleur, Robinson, Richard, Roy... etc.






My choice for favorite fringe players:


Pat Jablonski and Todd Ewen
