Carbonneau's take about the moves this summer

He is especially surprised to see that Komisarek is gone. Koivu was probably getting a bit impatient about being in Montreal (so many years and still no stanley cup...).

He's not sure that such a big overhaul was really needed.

Oh, just shut up...

Yeah. A guy that might have a different view than you have clearly has to shut up....How about disagreeing? Too much to ask?

As far as Carbo's comment, well I totally disagree as far as Komisarek is concerned. While he might not have liked not being re-signed by Gainey before ( and he's absolutely entitled to), he didn't show a whole lot of love for the sweater when he didn't accept the offer AND when he signed with an arch rival. Komisarek maybe HAD that love one day, but he did lose it fast. But I can't attribute that entirely to him.

As far as Koivu is concerned, well I would love to hear people having a different opinion than what Carbo has.

Surprisingly, Carbo seemed to like last year's team way more than the guy who built it....

It just sounds like Carbonneau is happy to critizise the guy (ex-friend) who fired him. La Presse will be quite happy to keep doing that... Controversy (I could have used a less polite word/expression) sells... Actually, you can see that is what La Presse is trying to do, from the title to 'Carbonneau a des doutes'...

It's not what he said... he said he
"THINKS perhaps it was difficult for Koivu to play in Montreal where people expected a cup or nothing from him. He was often criticized for no good reason."

Everything he said is arguably right on. Having said that, I'm quite happy with our new team and can't wait to see them play together..

LOL @ OP trying to stir **** for no reason.

Labbé's papers usually suck, but there's nothing wrong with this article. Also, for those who still think lapresse has a collective axe to grind, have a look at Gagnon's latest blog on which he calls out RT, and deservedly so.

A old coach giving his opinion on the new accusitions = him being big meany?

He has an opinion just like you and me along with sports journalist, they are not always great opinions, but carbo had some legit points

Not only does Carbo have legit points, but he also knows this team better than any of us, hfboarders!

I agree with the others in that he is allowed his opinion and it's not like the article is a bunch of crap from him wishing he had the new team to coach etc.

Well I guess the rotten apples are out now...


As far as the article goes, there's absolutely nothing negative in there. Love Carbo or hate him, at least don't make things up!

The one thing I find curious about this article is that Carbo seems to think the Habs just let Komi go. AFAIK it was Komi who decided to leave.

This is a bad move by Carbonneau. He has lots to lose but nothing to gain. What if Gainey did a great job and the Habs do really well next year, then all what Carbo said was wrong and this will effect his worth as a future coach.

Exactly,, Komi is good but not 5 mil worth of good. Komi had the chance to stay with MTL at his proper worth but chose to grab the money first and now he wonders why the Habs did not overpay the Leaf overpayment, and offer 6mil per.

Well, I can understand why he says the team didn't need that big an overhaul.

We were doing just fine until the IR filled up. Not to mention we were a darn good team a year ago with about the same core players. Some youngsters slumped a bit, but nothing they can't shake off.

I read it as he was surprised Komisarek decided to leave.

Considering Gainey offered Komi and Kovalev contracts, I'd say that even he agrees with most of Carbo's comments.

I don't know for sure, but it seems they did let him enter free agency. If they didn't offer him anything solid until a few hours before he was free to go, it's a bit of him leaving and the Habs letting him go IMO.

Even if he doesn't say anything bad, why the **** does he have to be interviewed. I would've prefered a Jacques Martin interview on HIS thoughts of the team.

He said that Koivu was often criticized for no reason. I guess he wasnt among his "pommes pourrites". My bet would be Begin, Dandy, Tanguay and maybe Laraque. Just noticed that they are all frenchies.

Yea I'm sure the pommes pourrites were the 4th lines grinders who were giving everything, everynight and not the other gang who was partying 24/7

What is it with all the racists on the boards today?


If you're only trolling for reactions (which I hope) I apologize. And you got me.

Actually, i was serious and im not racist at all and im also a fenchie. I just find it ironic that Carbo had a hard time with most of our french players. I heard Laraque this off-season saying that Carbo not playing Begin wasnt a popular decision in the locker room. He called out Tanguay for not playing. He benched Dandy all year long and and Dandy said they rarely spoke. laraque doesnt like him. These are facts.
