Witehall doesn't seem TOO bad outside if the NHL however.
I actually thought Juha Lind was a good player who was gonna re-energize our 2nd line..

Juha Lind and Johan Witehall...bad memories of the most brutal Habs season ever (2000-01).

Two things really hurt when looking at that team.

1. Oleg Petrov tied for the team lead in scoring
2. Karl Dykhuis leading the team in +/- with a +9

I'm pretty sure we've all had those moments in hockey.

Imagine the sens fans when they got Daigle.

Even habs fans when we aquired Czercawski(sp?)

Didn't Lind play on the same line as Koivu for a while?

I believe so. Also Lind was a guy that was suppose to help the Habs lure Teemu Selanne because Koivu, Lind and Selanne played together growing up. I'm pretty sure that's how the story went.

Funnily enough, my only memory of Juha Lind was a pretty nice goal he scored. All I remember is he was coming down the left side and slapped a booming shot over the goalies shoulder as he crossed the blue line. lol

I stopped watching hockey after Dallas won the Cup in '99 and hockey parents (not mine) were making it impossible to play the game anymore, and didn't come back until after Theodore won the Hart (it meant I could watch HNIC again because my mom thought Theo was cute).

Patrick Poulin in NHL was GOLD. When on hot streak he had a little stick AND a hammer!

Poulin had some good years in chicago.

Then the habs turned him into a defensive minded, ala Joey Jojo

So many players brought into the team just to watch them fizzle.
Traverse - to an extent
Czerkawski
Linden
Malakhov
Rucinsky

It wasn't just the players that left that turned out to be great for other teams, the Habs just seemed to have a knack for stiffling incoming talent in those lean years. Watching the Habs and being on the receiving end of jokes all those years ago makes me appreciate the current team so much more. it was during those years that I first heard the toilet seat reference, not sure how long it's been around though.

Wonder how McCleary would have turned out if it wasn't for the freak slapper to the throat injury.

ps
Zarley Zalapski, he just had an awesome name for hockey

Wow, Malakhov! I used to love-hate that guy. What wasted talent!

I hated that guy as soon as he went skiing while "injured"...we did get Souray out of the deal though.

And YEAH!! Higgins on his way back finally. Any idea on where he'll be? On the third and putting Begin down to the fourth?

that sounds perfect but is AK-46 going to be back?

earlier in this thread it was reported Begin - Lang - Kosto on line 3 with Higgins back but that didn't make sense.
