Steve Gainey a hab?

Do you guys think Gainey could put Juneau or Audette on the waivers to make some room for is son or a guy like Todd Harvey?

Doesn't his son royally suck? I hope Gainey doesn't claim him and put him on our roster.

No, he won't play for the Habs. Not like father, like son. Maurice and Henri Richard's brother wasn't good enough, nor was the Rocket's son. There was a seventh Sutter brother who didn't make it. Bloodlines don't always hold.

Gainey dosn`t seem like the kinda guy to bring in a relative just for the hell of it. That`s something Houle would do

Talking about Bloodlines and family, the London Knoghts are owned by Dale Hunter and I believe his son, Mark's son and a nephew of theirs play for them...so family helps if you want to play, plus Gainey was the GM in Dallas that drafted Steve. But I highly doubt we pick him, we have too many of our own talented kids going there, we don't need his son who is what 24 - 25 years old.

I don't expect either that Bob will bring is son again with the team.... still, Steve grew at least in part in Montreal and was drafted by Bob.... while Houle wasn't Hab's GM when is son was drafted.

Jean-Francois Houle Draft 4th round 93 99overall and the next lw pick was Miroslav Satan ... And it's Serge Savard not Peanut Houle... :mad:

Yeah, there were a lot of examples. Wasn't there a younger Gretsky? I think his name was Brett or Brent and he never made it either.

How do you know the 7th Sutter brother really was the best of them all? Maybe the other 6 said it diplomatically to relieve him of the embarrassment of not making it? If he was the best, one of the less talented (Duane? Rich?) could have taken his place on the farm.

It was said by past coaches, not his brothers.

Look at the Staal brothers, Carolina took Staal what 4th overall, his brother was taken 2nd overall in the OHL this summer, his 14 year old brother is playing AAA Midget and they say his 12 year old brother is even better than all of them! With all that pressure he might be the most talented, but he has the most to live up too.

One never knows how another in the family can handle pressure better or be more mature and ready over another can they?

Actually, Eric Staal has been drafted 2nd overall by the Carolina Hurricanes but I get the point, and I agree completely. Good points.
