Yeah, it would be terrible if the Habs won a Stanley cup with Carle on the roster. Especially if he ends up playing over 1000 games and gets 420 points.
Can people stop acting like Brisebois is the worst defensemen ever? He was pretty good in his prime, sadly he was put in a role he was unfit to play while paired with atrocious linemates.
Everyone loves Gorges for instance but place him in the conditions Brisebois played in for years and he'd be the most hated player on the roster. Patrice should never have been more than a no4-5 defensemen.
Actually, a no.3 guy, or a no.2 guy paired with a monster if we have no other option as a rusher.
The problem is, he played with guys that were really marginally better, if better at all (Weinrich, Manson) and headcases (Malakhov). Brisebois would have made a great partner to a guy like Chara, or even Adam Foote for that matter.
Wow! I was hoping for (and expected) Belle to be back up. Fit more into the Gill mold and did well.
Anyway, Boucher must think he is ready. Having met the man at the draft (was sitting just in front of Kulikov) I can tell you he is something special. Brilliant man with a lot of knowledge and passion. So welcome Mathieu! I will cheer for you! I am happy to see him get some NHL time... After all he went through, gotta feel for the guy.

Reason: wow I wrote some unreadable sentence!!!llolololol
I found Andre Benoit more solid defensively than Carle. Since Carle is a young prospect, he'll profit more playing in the big league. Funning that Carle also asked for a trade last year. SK probably has a case now.
Has it ever been confirmed? I never saw this rumor anywhere else than on HFboards. Maybe you have a link??
