More "Canadians" on our team?

I dunno about you guys but I would really love to see more CANADIAN players on our team, the kind of guys that have ALOT of HEART into the Canadian Game of Hockey and get a fresh look from just having alot of Russian/European players on our team (nothing against them) its just I'd like to see more guys like Gary Roberts, Trevor Linden, Douggie Gilmour, or any good ol Canadian boys from Kingston or anywhere in Canada

The first time Euro crap is a weak argument.
Euro's have won the cup in the past, and they will continue to do so.
the team is headed in the rught direction and its not time to change all that by adding canadians.

i didnt say Canadians arent the best.

I said to think the only way we will succeed is with more canadian born players is false.

We finished first in the conferance this year with our Euro's and we would have made the ECF if not for Biron acting like god and us not getting the bounces. it wasnt meant to be this year. Thats it.

the reason we didnt win is cuz we didnt have the guys that block the shots, and drive to the net...you know, do what Philly was doin against us...and NOTHIN against the Habs Euro players for not havin heart cuz they do, but this is PLAYOFFS, and Canadian players have the HEART for the Canadian game of hockey, I'd just like a FRESH flood of Canadian players on our team....guys with heart like Trevor Linden, Gary Roberts, Joe Nieuwendyk ect....Canadian playoff WARRIORS

Yeah our team made some pretty passes and plays in the reg. season but we all know its a whole different game in the playoffs, I just suggest we get more playoff warriors

Mike Komisarek says hi. You know, the guy who led the league in blocked shots- the American guy?

ya, your right, 15 years of nothing isnt long enough. we need to destroy and re-build again with only Canadians.

Our playoff loss had nothing to do with blocking shots. our guys did that.
We didnt get the bounces and the Flyers did. We outplayed them 4 of the 5 games in that series. It had nothing to do with them being Canadian born players and us Euro's. Stop with that non-scence

stop kidding yourself, sure we outshot them but they were shots from dump ins and bad angles...nothin against the Habs but thats mostly the only kind of shots they were able to get against the gritty Philly team...we gotta stop making excuses and realize our shots were from weak areas cuz Philly was a MONSTER taking away chances from our playmakers and scorers

lol...yes, Philly totally outplayed us. we looked like an ECHL team. What was I thinking.
We need to get rid ok Andrei, Sergei, Kovalev, Markov, Koivu and Plekanec because we arent going anywhere with them. they only lead our team all year but your so right. We must let them go.

If you can't get the "right" European players like the Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Ovechkin, etc... you better stick with a team made with a majority (60% and more) of North American born players.

ok buddy, to score goals in the playoffs you gotta get down and dirty and get em anyway you can like PHILLY...pretty passes and dekes are fun to watch in regular season but in playoffs youll get shut down, unless your Super MARIO...but come on, you gotta get down and dirty and be a WARRIOR


nothin against the habs cuz we are a pretty fast, fun team to watch


but in the playoffs im just sayin we should get some Gary Roberts, Trevor Linden warriors
