Round 5: Worst Canadien in Recent History

Berezin wins a squeaker over Matt Higgins in Round 4, to determine the 5th worst Hab in recent history. Now onto Round 5!

I have thrown Bashkirov off the ballot due to lack of votes. He and our winner will be replaced with Jonas Hoglund and Zarley Zalapski.

Note: I am aware I accidently put Baron on twice. Miloslav Guren (D) was supposed to be the other person, but he barely got enough votes last time to stay on the list, so I think we can just ignore the mistake for this round.

----

Worst Montreal Canadiens in Recent Memory
1. Patrick Traverse (26.44%)
2. Sergei Samsonov (24.14%)
3T. Mariusz Czerkawski (15.49%)
3T. Janne Niinimaa (15.49%)
5. Sergei Berezin (21%)
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

---

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'm surprised that Racicot has lasted this long - people seem to think that he's the worst goalie ever. To think he was the Canadiens' Number 1 goalie for a decent portion of the 1990-91 season. Remember - Jean-Claude Bergeron was worse.

Witehall was a waiver pickup in 00-01 if I remember correctly, the year when they were contenders for Kovalchuk in the first half - that was back when they'd pick players off the scrap heap like Shannon and Enrico Ciccone and Karl Dykhuis, who played a few years after that.

Dipietro was not bad.

Ryan didn't play enough games (see original post).

Bashkirov was on there, he was removed because no one voted for him.

Stock seems to be getting votes.

I don't want to be difficult here, but I really think we should have a 4th worst hab before we have a sixth worst hab.

Paul DiPietro scored 3 goals in one game in the '93 cup run, that alone should disqualify him from this poll

We do.

When there was a tie (such as there was for 3rd) you skip down to 5th.

We did the 3rd place poll twice (once in a run off) and Niinimaa and Czerkawski kept getting the same amount of votes
