Rivet will for sure, he has already come out and said he wants to stay here for the rest of his career Hopefully Souray will think the same way
I'm not the one to look forward to the off-season before getting there, but a top-four composed of Markov, Souray, Rivet and a solid top-pairing UFA signing would be fine with me for the next few seasons. Souray and Rivet are proud Habs, it's easy to realize.
We, fans, should always remember that even if those guys earn millions, they are humans first.
Remember what happened at the beginning of the season :
Souray was in conflict with his wife, they divorced.. then he had to go in front of California's justice for his child's custody... Well, If I was Souray... I wouldn't be hockey-minded at this moment.
It was the same for Komisarek (his mother health problems)
And I want to add that it was the same with the regretted José Théodore... But unfortunately, the media, fans (including us) throwed him in a no-way out situation... This gentleman will be a superstar in Colorado, trust me.
Souray is playing very well lately.. but the way he played early in the season, I can't really apologize for my comments on him. He was atrocious... I'm very happy both Souray and Dandy got their game together!
Maybe some remembered the debate that was going on between me and several habs fans at the beginning of the season. I kept defending the guy and now he turned in what he always was, a great habs hearted guy that brings so much to our team it s not even funny...
At times you wonder what he is thinking defensively, but he has turned his game around completely and is i think back to two years ago level. Lately his rocket is hitting the net, which i think is a big reason for his improvement in overall play. Its about confidence and if he loses that in his shot, the rest of his game can hurt which i think it did earlier this season (combined with off ice distractions).
