I'm still not sold on...

Who are some of the players Montreal has, in the NHL or the system, that you're just not sold on?

I have a couple.. Rene Bourque, Raphael Diaz is another.. I don't know what it is about them, but I really don't like them in a Habs uniform...

I really wasn't happy to see Briere wear a Habs jersey. He is such a bad fit on our team. Can't believe we actually signed him.

1. David Desharnais

2. Gionta (1 year older and coming off another injury, i am doubting his capabilities in a top 6 role)

3. Travis Moen (which Moen will we see?)

David Desharnais - just needs to go...really...it's time...

Francis Bouillon - Cube just doesn't have it anymore...he's a Press Box sitter at best now.

Raphael Diaz - Make or break season for him...is he a capable Top 6 PMD or is he just another fragile smurf Dman?

Travis Moen - again, make or break...does he have gas left or is he done?

Brian Gionta - if he stays healthy, it's for one last year, enjoy it...if he's resigned, we have a problem.

Diaz/DD , they are too flawed. Diaz is way too weak on D, can never clear the crease, and is just not big enough for the NHL. Did you see him at the golf tourny? The guy needs 10lbs of muscle min.

Murray is a horrible horrible skater, I think we are going to end up screaming at him when guys go outside in on him. Then he'll do something physical and we'll like him, but he will be more of a liability then what he brings.

I want to build around the following going forward, the rest can walk or be traded once the season is done:

Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Briere
Bourque - Plekanec - Thomas/Collberg
XXXXX - Eller - Gallagher
Prust - Dumont - McCarron

Gorges - Subban
Beaulieu - Emelin
Tinordi - XXXXX

Price
Budaj

Briere - Don't love his game, but at 2 years it isn't a big risk and he does fill a hole

Desharnais - Still baffled how he got more years and dollars than Subban

Murray, Bouillon, Drewiskie - fine as depth guys but it seems like we've focused more on quantity than quality

Gorges, Diaz and Markov are all decent size question marks too. Our whole D core scares me a bit outside of Subban and our youth

Bergevin and Therrien don't have my full faith either

1. Therrien
2. Bergevin
3. Desharnais
4. Moen
5. Briere
6. Bouillon
7. Drewiskie
8. Gionta
9. Dumont (who needs Lapierre and his proven playoff performance and size?? We have a 5'7" rookie who can't fight and has barely played in the league!)

But most of my anxiousness is directly aimed at Bergevin and Therrien. Two arrogant doofuses who are going to undo what little good we've mustered over the past decade.

Emelin, way too sloppy and not that good defensively.

I'm not sold on Desharnais, Diaz, Eller and Bourque. I think a good season from each of them could make me change my mind. I guess consistency is what I'm looking for.

I'm not even sure where to aim my anxiousness, but I have a feeling last year was the best we'll see for a long time to come

Darren Dregger - interviewed on 690 this AM - said most people thing the team played over their heads last year. He also remarked that our season will rise or fall based on Carey's performance. And though he said it was only pre-season, he was surprised that Carey Price looked like **** last night. God help us.
