Pretty crazy to think that these guys were supposed to be a huge part of our future, and now look where they are...
I'd take AK back anytime of the week.

Amazing! Maybe 1 or 2, but I never would've guessed that all 5 of these players would've tanked so epically. It just shows to go ya: longevity in the NHL ain't no walk in the park!

Galchy with Eller and Akost would be amazing.

Matt D'Agostini is another

Grabovski, Ribeiro, Mcdonagh are the only ones that really got away.

D'Agostini could have a big season in Pittsburgh. I thought he was a pretty good pickup, as a cherry picker who could bury chances created by their possession monsters.

Let's give Briere a chance in Montreal and DD a chance to rebound. I have a feeling they are going to make a lot of people eat crow.

Because he chose to extend his contract with Traktor instead.

Took something like 15 rounds/ 30 shooters to get a goal, Reimer = early Vezina candidate with this performance, Leafs fans were right!

On another note, Vokoun is now out indefinitely, will be interesting to see how Fleury performs

Celebrate! I'd like to throw in Khudobin's name as early Vezina candidate.

Because he's making good money as a top line guy in the KHL, and not being picked apart because of his first language?

I'd say it was a huge reason since there were people with another first language that played worse and got more ice time as well as positive talk about them from the analysts at RDS/fanbase.

Name these people please. I liked Andrei K, and I dislike a good portion of Habs fans who happen to be overly dramatic and critical about the Habs...but a lot of the criticisms he received were not biased, as you suggest.

This fanbase criticizes anyone and everyone on this team, french or not. RDS are biased fools, this fanbase is a lot of things, but biased (in this context)? Not at all. You forget that Kovalev, who has a LOT in common with Andrei was loved by this fanbase.

I think most of our fanbase were either too hard or too easy on Andrei K. I think I accepted Andrei for what he was, an okay second-line winger but very good third-line winger.

He would have probably been better suited for this version of the Canadiens, on our third-line though, nothing more.

I'd definitely take back the A. Kostitsyn who can put up 45 points in a season, but he's no longer that player.
