Favourite short-term Hab from the G/G era

During the Gainey/Gauthier years our secondary scoring/checking players saw a high turnaround rate and with that came some players who had a lot of support despite only playing here briefly.

I just thought I'd start a poll with 10, my apologies if your choice is missing, the possibilities were many.

I would consider Cammalleri for this category, but I fear he'd easily win the poll.

You can vote more than once.

Yeah I have a soft spot for Glen because I'm from the same (less than luxurious) neighbourhood in Toronto as he is/I go to the barber he used to

How was O'Byrne a short-term player? He was here for over three seasons.

Same with Streit.

Gotta say Moore. My type of bottom six player. Gave it all out there every night and was effective. Plus, that goal game 7...don't think I need to say more...made me jump 25 feet in the air...

Lang, definitely.

Rarely do we trade for a player to fill a need - and then have that player fill it perfectly.

That 08-09 team was one of the biggest 'what if' seasons in recent memory. Injuries derailed what was a really solid roster.

so much potential, but injuries and Carbo as a coach killed it. Give us a Bylsma/torterella/Babcock that prone offensive game but structured system and this had the potential to be a scary team.

I really liked Lang, he was awesome. Keeping Wizniewski or Tanguay would have been great tho, both skilled and useful players (in the case of Wiz he would have been too expensive. Tanguay? well he definitely should have been kept... would make our current top6 much better). Moore was good for us too, no idea why he wasn't keep.

I don't really consider Streit, Perezhogin or O'Byrne to be short term habs because we drafted them and they stayed here for more than one season (in the case of O'Byrne and Perez also spent a lot of time in Hamilton)

Lang was awesome. When he got vs in that afternoon game vs Boston, you could just tell that the season took a turn for the worse... it didn't help that Latendresse got hurt in the same game, AND they had the ugliest jerseys ever.

I still love the entry into the Urban Dictionary for Robert Lang

Quote:
Definition #2 : The art of pulling a "Lang", where you do very little but manage to benefit from the hard work of others.

Definition #2 : The art of succeeding in the 20th century with a Mullet, a hairstyle that hasn't been socially accepted since 1993.
Example 1 : Alex Kovalev pulled a "Lang" last night and scored his first goal in 9 games.

Yeah I debated putting them on, but they didn't play prominent/consistent roles for very long (or at all in OByrne's case).

Looking at the results maybe I should've included Kostopolous instead of one of Smoke/OByrne/Schneider.

It made sense at the time, but in retrospect, Streit-Lapierre-Kovalev has to be one of the weirdest lines ever assembled in hockey.

A natural defenseman, a 4th line agitator, and a 1000+ career point guy.

Gotta give it to Lang here. That was just an awesome half a season we got out of him, and as was mentioned was one of the rare times we've traded to fill a need and actually filled it. Honourable mention to Moore for the game 7 goal.

Tanguay and Lang where both awesome...we should have never let them go.We had a great team back in 08-09, we finally had a legit chance for the cup. We had great veterans and a mix of great talented young players.

I always wanted to see that team get a second chance.

Probably my favorite Canadiens goal since the lockout (...last lockout). #1 seed in the East against the #8 Bruins. We had dominated them all season (won all 8 regular season games against them) and yet ended up in a game 7.

We won the game 5-0 but it was really close for far too long and this goal was such a relief. Seemed like we had a real shot at Stanley

Jean Béliveau giving a pre game pep talk to Glen Metropolit was probably one of the coolest thing ive ever seen so I voted him.

Tanguay can go **** himself after his "well I am cleared to play, but I won't" stunt in the playoffs.
