Ok. He's not trash. Good player during a mediocre time. And he's not better than PK so best player? Not really.

I'm just looking forward to a better time built aroud potential elite players such as PK, Price and Galchenyuk. So dreaming about good players from the past isn't that interesting to me. Especially when I can still remember times before that like 93 when we actuwlly had superstar players.

Well, DD isn't the worst option there because at least he can set up PK and Gallagher for 1-timers or put the puck down low to Pacioretty for a jam play or cross crease pass to Markov. However that's about the extent of it. Galchenyuk should, in time, be QB'ing the PP from there as he can do the same thing in addition to being a shooting threat from there.

Galchenyuk will be one top PP scorer but he is not there yet.
Everything goes through Markov-Subban. It is one of the most uncoordinated PPs I have ever seen. And the second wave is entirely useless because the pointmen suck.

This

Neither d-man can keep the puck in at the blueline

Gorges/Cube have only one trick, shoot the puck wide

Diaz does the same but not on purpose

he was the best player we've had in one of the worst decade this team ever had

he was good but his share of downsides too, we move on. Good player overated to great player because of the lack of superstars in Montreal for about 15 years

Its not like we are better right now.

Say what you want Kovy was a warrior for us in the playoffs, we never have too much of those.
