Maybe Gainey will let go of Mark Streit and sign Konstantin Korneev. He will be less expensive and probably almost as effective.
OK, Mark Streit scored 62 points in the NHL last year. That would be second or third scorer on almost every team in the league. We are supposed to believe that Korneev PROBABLY (!) could do almost as well.
I'm sorry but that is hilarious if we're talking short term.
How did Korneev do in his league, and how does that league compare to the NHL?
Well, as far as I know, Ice Poutine as been a member of the boards for awhile and he likes the Habs. He claims he drinks too much but that's only when he makes a mistake on the HFboards.
Oh, yeah, he does come up with some zingers every once in awhile, That's all I know about him.
BAHAHA! Don't know if it's cuz I'm tired, but oh man, that made me laugh. Too funny.
