C'mon I have a jersey that says Red Light on the back.. Racicot is the man!

edit: I'm serious. They guy was a good goalie, and had good stats. He just couldn't put it together to be a starter.

Chad Kilger ? Hardly... Stephane Quintal???


Everybody seem to forget about Peter Popovich, THE definition of a whipping boy... (after Breezer of course)

Courtnall took some serious heat before he was traded for Bellows, too.

Surely you remember the booing of Terry Harper ? I'm still mad about that. I loved the Harp.

I really despise your avatar. Just thought I'd put that out there.

Harper got booed sometimes but he never got an ugly nickname

No, it's called selective memory. Just like when you forget the wife asks you to take out the trash, you forget the really bad players who were on the Habs.
As far as I'm concerned, the entire team was Koivu from 1996-2000

The early nineties saw the fab three of whipping boys - Keane, Skrudland, Gilchrist. All three broke in about the same time, were on successful Habs teams (Skrudland played on the 86 cup winner and all three played on the team that lost to Calgary in 89), grew up in the Habs system, character guys - tough as nails.

For me this is where the Habs jumped the shark. Yes, ultimately the Roy trade sealed the fate of the franchise, but getting rid of these three players in the span on three years turned the Habs into a rudderless franchise made up of soft players. . We are still struggling to regain the toughness we had from the mid eighties to the early nineties.
