I believe professional hockey players or any professionals owe it to themselves and their organizations/cooroporations to perform to their highest standards and capabilities. Now I know its difficult while watching the Habs to believe this but every member of this team needs to fight for a job/position on this team next year (except maybe Gomez they play him no matter what) and sure, I'm the same as most on this board, in theory getting 2nd overall pick is whats best for this franchise, but I'm also a believer in a team finally building some chemistry. Markov's health is still the most important part of this team, if
hes playing at full strength, this is a completely different team, and yes a playoff team.
Saying all that I sort of hope we get a great pick and use it wisely, but I don't believe this team will ever purposely tank it. With Markov back I don't believe we are bad enough to finish 2nd last either.
Not all of us are like that and I put those people on ignore and report them. I am one of the good ones
Laughter is the best medicine.
In all seriousness, I want you guys to be good again. The rivalry isn't the same.
You just proved you are an imposter, a true bruins fan would never wan't the Habs to win, thats whats so great about our rivalary, back a few years ago when we beat you guys like every game in regulation, I was jumpin up for joy, I wanted to bury you guys, then we beat you in a couple playoff series, even better, then Chara hurt Patches and you guys won the cup and now I hate you guys even more than ever. These are the things that actually make a great rivalary great, and when the tides turn again and we start beating you again, I will be the happiest guy in the world.
Bonne Chance! hopefully no injuries tonight, and an exciting game...ummmm...hope your drive for a high draft pick continues tonight. Lol...not sure if you guys want us to win or not, but cheers, anyways.
