Round 7: Worst Canadien in Recent History?

Juha Lind wins in a low number of votes in general. Hopefully turn out is better this round.

Removing Bashkirov again, since despite popular demand, no one voted for him. Also dropped Guren. Adding Garth Murray, readding Jason Dawe, and new list entry Yves Racine.

----

Worst Montreal Canadiens in Recent Memory
1. Patrick Traverse (26.44%)
2. Sergei Samsonov (24.14%)
3T. Mariusz Czerkawski (15.49%)
3T. Janne Niinimaa (15.49%)
5. Sergei Berezin (21%)
6. Matt Higgins (28.38%)
7. Juha Lind (14.71%)
8.
9.
10.

---

In honor of a recent thread with the best 100 Canadiens of all time, I am opening a poll to figure out the worst Montreal Canadien of recent history.

I did far more research than I would like to admit. So here is my criteria:

-Must have played between 1984-85 and today (IE: Koivu & Roy's current career span combined)
-Only Montreal stats, regular season, count.
-Must have played 20 or more games for Montreal.

Now, like the prospect polls, I will nominate 15 guys, but post more players here. In each poll "other" is an option. If other wins, then I will figure out who the heck was gathering those votes and redo that round with them in it.

I will post the list of nominees I came up with in full, including career Habs stats, in the subject thread.

My nominations are based on actual statistical badness, my own memory and in some cases, popular demand. The actual nominees will be at my discretion to start. Some people - O'Byrne - are solely on this list to demonstrate their relative stats and will not be in the poll unless there is truly popular demand.

Poll closes in one day.

Here is the list of people I considered.

Yup. Outside of Traverse, he might be the worst habs dman I have ever seen.

Obviously my vote is for Christian Laflamme

Agreed. However, my absolute hate for Hoglund made me pick him. Every time he was on the ice, I wanted to die. Not to mention, he came with expectations and sucked.

Dykhuis, while no gem, has a few guys in line in front of him.

I'm surprised there is not more support for Racine.

Witehall

He wore equipment and had a pulse, and I sometimes wondered about the latter.

Seeing that list of players you have to feel for Koivu having to play all those years with those players on the team

No wonder there were years he wouldn't get many points.

I'll keep voting for Stock until he gets in.

If he doesn't make the Top 10 they should shut this *** board down.

Ya, I'll agree with you. Hoglund was pretty F'ing bad. He seemed so disinterested!!!!

i'll take 10 Turner Stevenson's before 1 Patrick Traverse!!! Turner had some skills. Granted hands of stone, but he had some value as a 3rd/4th liner. Tons of heart. It's just too bad we actually had to play him every now and then as a top six forward.
