Say what you want about Corson....

Through all the ups and downs, Corson still has a soft spot for the Canadiens, which he called a "first-class organization."

"My heart is with the Canadiens," he said. "I still bleed red, white and blue and always will."

Shayne Corson and Jeff Hackett. It's ridiculous how much they loved to be Candiens.

Read " my heart is with the canadians , my body with the montreal canadian females ," he said " my c-- is red,white and blue .."

I have a Corson jersey too, man I loved hearing tales about his "escapades" Just kidding I always thought he was a player that played with heart and emotion on the ice. I wish him the best for now and I hope he signs with an NHL team in the fall.

I remember he broke his car the day he found out he was traded. He wasn't the same player after the trade.

I've always been a huge fan of Corson. He's one of my top-five favourite Habs ever.

The fact that he bailed on the Leafs merely improved my opinion of him.

Man, I've always loved Corson too and hated to see him and Richer go... I'd love to give him another shot as a Hab!

Zednik - Koivu - Kovalev
Ryder - Ribeiro - Corson

Woooo!!!

well, just to give you an idea, if you wanna give him a shot, you can as well call Richer and Pepe Lemieux, and why not Carbo?

These guy are not old but their NHL career are over, the body just cannot take it anymore, they can play 15-20 seconds and you'll say WOW, this guy is still awesome, yes, he still is, Carbo was actually interviewed on RDS yesterday and he said he still had no problem playing at (almost) NHL level, the problem was doing it for more than 20 seconds and getting his breath back afterwhile.

Particularly guys like corson, they are two way players, run and gun stile, they forecheck hard and then backcheck hard, while distributing hits and tauting to fight...

Corson, Richer, Lemieux and Carbonneau.. ahhh I'd love that. The last days of the Habs dynasty right there.. in my eyes anyway. We iced a few good squads after that but.. it just wasn't the same. In that small group, you have out last 50 goal scorer, a true captain and THE best two-way player and shot blocker, pure grit in Corson and Lemieux and even Carbonneau for the early part of his carear.. and then there's the super pest! I miss those days.

I'm from Corson's home town (Barrie, Ontario) and to be honest, I liked him while he was here, and he would be a great boost for a playoff stretch... However, will he have any gas when they return next year? (he's something like 38-39)... He'd be some much needed sandpaper and experience to go along with the youth on the squad... But the big beware about Corson is that he does not like to be benched, or limited... If he was to return, I'd like it to be on a contract that ensures he plays wherever the habs wish to play him (bottom 2 lines, PK, and the occasional PP when he is shining like it was 1988 again )
As far as him saying his heart is in Montreal, I'd like to believe so, but I am not entirely sure it's the verbatim truth.

Loved Corson when he was a HAB . I wouldn't want him back on the team today though , heart can only take you so far, he's used up goods now.
It's time for Shayne to say goodbye .

At 39 i think your right. He would no longer have the lungs to be as good as what he once was... 2-way hockey, end to end stuff. If he was ever to come back he would ruin all the goods memories we have of him, by alienating us with less than stellar play on the ice now.

Shayne Thanks for the memories best of luck in whatever you go on to do!!!

And then there is the re-birth of the habs. First Zednik and Bulis, then drafting guys like Komisarek, Perezhogin, Kostitsyn, Higgins, then the explosion of Ryder, Ribeiro and Markov, then Kovalev.
