As a Montreal fan who remembers the great Montreal teams of the past i just cant figure out why they now have become a total failure with no hope of ever regaining that winning formula.
From the mid 1950's to 1980 they were one of the most dominating sports franchises out there. In those 25 seasons they won the Stanley Cup 15 times. Their last championship was in the 1992/93 season.

IMO their troubles started in the 1995/96 season with the clash between head coach Mario Tremblay and goalie Patrick Roy. It was an ugly situation as things had festered between the two for some time. And after Roy's last game as a goalie in a 11-1 blowout where Roy stayed in there the whole time, well, after that ordeal the club shipped him off to the Colorado Avalanche. Patrick won two Stanley Cups with the Av's. And Tremblay? Well,,,,

Be a top goalie in the league and even win the Hart one season?

Tremblay was gone after '97. Rejean Houle was the bigger problem. Trading Roy and captain Mike Keane for garbage, Trevor Linden bombing, drafting Ron Hainsey in the first round.


The one move that pushed me over the edge was at the 2000 trade deadline. We had a deal set up to send Patrice Brisebois to the Devils for Sergei Brylin. Devils agreed, all we needed was Brisebois to waive his no trade clause. He refuses and Houle ends up sending Vladimir Malakhov for Sheldon Souray. Malakhov wins a Cup with NJ that season and our consolation was 7 years of Souray.

Curiously the same time as Bettman came on the scene and made many changes to the league.

Our new goalie off to a good start.=

Rookie goaltender Charlie Lindgren was a winner in his NHL debut Thursday night. Lindgren, who was signed as a free agent out of St. Cloud State University last week, made 26 saves as the Canadiens defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 at PNC Arena.

Yeah... I just hope they find a way to keep Condon. I like him. He's put so much effort into his game, and his passion is amazing. A VERY solid backup that played behind a god-awful crippled team. I think Scrivens is cool, and the fact his wife is a pro goalie too makes him even more likeable, but he belongs elsewhere IMO.
