Balej...

He have only 3g and 8a in 19 games this season so do you think last year was only a decent season from an not that great player?

Also, would you like do see BG try to get him back?

He's gone and we'll never get him back. I'm not sure we need him anyways.

The AHL is a stronger league this year, so expect players numbers to be down some. Although I've seen a few of the wolfpack games, and he hasn't really stood out like he did last year. Still no doubt he's got the skills.

I think the Wolfpack as a whole are having trouble in the scoring department, despite the fact that they had an incredible start when they went a winning streak of a ridiculous number of games...

But, everyone who saw them recognised it was their defensive awareness as a team that had allowed them to be successful...

Having said that, from what I have seen this season, there's no doubt he has the potential to be a scorer in the NHL, in the games I have seen he's easily been the most exciting player on the ice making things happen out of nothing...

What he doesn't have is a center, and that's the reason for the 3G...

I do think he still needs to work on accuracy, it was a problem in 2003 training camp, and though its improved, it could get better...

no , last year he was really a great player and he's still a good player.

it's only that now he's a NY Rangers ; it's a normal thing that he suck until they trade him...

What is painful exactly? We had a pretty darn good team last year in the playoffs, with the hottest first line (when they played)? Is that painful. Or is it that we traded a Czerkawski-like player? (Do we need those anyways?)

You're absolutely right. Kovalev was a god in playoffs(when it counts).

People should stop looking behind we'll never progress by trying to repair, we need to create. The deal is done so look for the future, with what we have.

I'm a big fan of Balej's, but the bottom line is that Hamilton is stacked with quality players, and chances are there wouldn't be much room for him down the road on the Canadiens roster.

Good tradeable asset he was though.

I can swallow the trade a little more seeing the 2000 draft Balej was taken in barely has any nhl regulars after his pick.3rd round 78th overall.
