Just out of curiosity, why can no ex-Hab go out of the bloody division? Komisarek and Beauchemin sign with the leafs, Begin with the Bruins and now Kovalev with the Sens. Hello? Ex-Habs? There are FIVE divisions other than the Northeast. And guess what? Some of them have teams in warm, sunny climates where evil fans and media don't recognize you on the street. Jeez...I guess this shoots down the idea that bad weather keeps players out of Montreal.
Crap. It hurts enough to lose our players. But now we're pretty much obliged to hate their guts. I just wish I had more confidence that Gionta, Gomez and Cammalleri would burn those teams so badly we could walk away smiling. I fear this season.
Just, please, Saku...we still love you...don't sign with the Sabres. Go west, young man. I don't think we can take it if you don't.
