Round 4: Worst Canadien In Recent History?

Well that was absurd. Niinimaa and Czerkawski tied in the initial ballot and then AGAIN in the run-off.

So let's just go to Round 4. Now to determine the 5th worst Hab!

----

Worst Montreal Canadiens in Recent Memory
1. Patrick Traverse (26.44%)
2. Sergei Samsonov (24.14%)
3. Mariusz Czerkawski / Janne Niinimaa (15.49%)
4. ...
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

No one, save the two winners, were removed this time. I added Sylvain Blouin and Miloslav Guren to replace them.

---

In honor of a recent thread with the best 100 Canadiens of all time, I am opening a poll to figure out the worst Montreal Canadien of recent history.

I did far more research than I would like to admit. So here is my criteria:

-Must have played between 1984-85 and today (IE: Koivu & Roy's current career span combined)
-Only Montreal stats, regular season, count.
-Must have played 20 or more games for Montreal.

Now, like the prospect polls, I will nominate 15 guys, but post more players here. In each poll "other" is an option. If other wins, then I will figure out who the heck was gathering those votes and redo that round with them in it.

I will post the list of nominees I came up with in full, including career Habs stats, in the subject thread.

My nominations are based on actual statistical badness, my own memory and in some cases, popular demand. The actual nominees will be at my discretion to start. Some people - O'Byrne - are solely on this list to demonstrate their relative stats and will not be in the poll unless there is truly popular demand.

Poll closes in one day.

Here is the list of people I considered.

I voted other since my vote goes to: Patrick Traverse.
He was just that bad. He deserves to be 1st and 5th on this list.

Gotta go with Berezin...the only memorable thing he did was score the club's 10000th goal. Why him?

Edit: I think Jim Cummins could deserve some consideration...1999-00 Montreal Canadiens NHL 47 3 5 8 92

Just being 1st on this list doesn't do justice to how bad he really was.

You could always make another thread with a "tie-breaker" poll with just the two players.

I voted for Racicot.. I mean, when your nickname is "red light" you know you are just plain awful.
