I need to Vent

i was on the TSN Free Agent Frenzy blog and i was getting so fustrated with people saying " why hasn't gainey gone after a big name?" "or "why didn't he go after Beauchmin instead of spacek and gill?"
how do you know he didn;t go after these players? are you in the room with bob while his is trying to make deals?

I mean people cmon. at the end of the day it is up to the player to sign. if he doesn't want to play in montreal(which not alot of players do) how is it bobs fault. its not its the media and the crazy fans who want a stanley cup right now.

he probably made offers to the big names but they are still looking at other offers.

now i am not saying i agree with all of the deals gainey made and the mistakes of letting UFAs go for nothing. but don't blame the guy for something that he is either in the process of doing or tried to but the player just said no to montreal.

just my 2 cents.

So all the mediocre players in the NHL love playing here but none of the stars do.. hmm right. We overpay garbage players but never overpay for stars. Take the 2.25M from Gill and tack it onto Gaborik's offer and I'll bet you he comes.

And I'm tired of people complaining about how "small" the team is. Size is overrated. 5'11 isn't that bad.

Who says he (or Havlat) aren't coming here already?

Who says having a team full of holes will attract players? I mean if it was all about money, why wouldn't players go to Toronto?

Yet, JBo signs in Calgary. The Sedins stay in Vancouver.

Why? Because they get a chance to win with a good team AND get paid.

Not a Nobody...but

Camalleri is not a nobody, but not a number one.... I think Bob has tried, but you can't say they have gotten bigger up front with Camalleri and Gomez. I wouldn't mind signing Kovy and Tanguay but with about 10 million left..... who knows.

This guy was tied for the 6th most goals in the league last year. How is this not a number 1 (I assume a line number 1 player).

He wasn't signed to be a number 1 center.

Honestly...as stupid as it sounds...I prefer Cammy over Havlat or Gaborik. He's not injury prone, he's younger and he's a 40 goal scorer.
