I am amazed at all this "Poor us, Diaz wasn't shit after all..." talk. How have we become so delusional when it comes to rating our own talent? All I can think of is that we all suffer from the recently discovered mental condition known as "Habszeihmers."
Now this appears to affect fans as well as Habs Management. Typically we all seem to get on our high horses and cry foul about who ever left and how the return we got is going to suck the balls of 9000 goats. Talk about damning the new incoming player before they even get a chance to wear the uniform. Management seems to trade players (not only MB, but this goes back to even as far as the Houle era) always as undervalued. Never in a position of power. Oh but that's because our players suuuuck... tell that to the other GM's who have repeatedly sold us Lada's and Pinto's over the last DECADES. If Habs Management is so clueless over the last 20 years as to be buy everyone else's retarded cousins....they must be suffering from some form of demetia. And we as fans must be suffering from the same.
There's no way this team will win (and by win I mean, be successful, competitive contenders to the Cup year after year) given the current mental state of the organization. A new owner didn't rattle the ship. A new GM didn't rattle the ship. A new coach didn't rattle the ship. Is it time to sink it? How much more can you kick a dead horse?
I'm born and raised in Montreal, and will love the Habs till my imminent, and untimely death, but damn man.... this bitch gone crazy, yo.
Welcome to Montreal, Dale!
