Just look up what Gainey said to the fans who were booing Brisebois. That's my advice word for word.
Too bad, a lot of people would love to get a chance to go see the Habs.
the best part is the ticket I jacked was meant to be given to some kid as a gift from the Make-a-Wish Foundation... Well... off I go to root for the road team... And when will you guys realize I'm just joking around
Well that's just add. The Habs are low on size down low and adding a non-physical 5'11 (I hate putting an emphasis on size, by the way) just won't help much. I would have preferred someone that had a bit more size like Mark Mitera (6'3) or someone with some NHL experience like Joe Callahan (46 NHL games, also 6'3). We'll see.
Having a good preseason is not a good enough reason. Gomez had a great preseason too. When you're playing against guys that are at your level then you look better than you really are. St-Denis was going up against other teams AHL (or lower calibre) talent. He won't have that same opportunity tonight. This is why I'd prefer someone with some experience like Callahan.
Then why mention Mitera? He's absolutely sucked this year in Hamilton.
At this point, all that I am hoping for would be a game without a player being injuried. A win would be a bonus given that we have a d that has played 1/4 of the games Hal Gill has in his enitre career.
