good thing it didn't happen. But not re-signing Koivu is just sinful.

Just to be clear, I have nothing against Tanguay and I thought he did a good job in his 50 games, but he was still on his last year of his contract and giving a 1st for that type of player when you don't know if he has any future with the team is a lot. The result is that every teams in the league got better long term that year (and in hindsight, 2008 was an awesome draft) except Montreal's.
