I've tried to stay positive the whole long of the season... But unless the Habs acquire a Passionate energetic skilled player within the next 48 hours... I don't think we have much chances, especially if we lose the next two..
I don't think even a 50 goal star player would help that much. One player can't win it all.
Everyone wanted Gill and Hamrlik gone. And Spacek gone.
Spacek and Hamrlik would have been two of our best defenseman right now and would really help stabilize our Top-4.
I really never got the hate for Hamrlik. Yes he's a shell of himself, yes he takes penalties, he's not great at anything anymore but he can still do a little bit of everything. Yet everyone wanted Gill more. Gill is a better penalty killer than anything Hammer can do anymore, but Gill is useless at every other part of the game. If you had someone like Hammer to play with Emelin or Diaz instead of another young player or a career spare part like Campoli, you would notice a big difference.
Not saying Hammer would have saved our season, but if Gauthier deserves to lose his job for everything, it's gambling on Markov without bringing back the guy that kept us alive without Markov.
