NHL BUZZ

BIG TEAM, BIG GAME, BIG EXPECTATIONS

Big players play big……. and when General Manager Bob Gainey is there how the Canadiens can fail to become one of the dominant franchises. Gainey who became general manager of the Montreal Canadiens in May 2003 turned the Canadiens into a playoff contender. An eternity in a city where championships has been expected for generations is once again ready to introduce the next generation of Montreal champions. Gainey’s prudence of getting his own players under contract for the coming season rather than doing a supermarket sweep through the free-agency ranks is simply praiseworthy. This has also enthused a feeling of confidence in the among the Canadiens players (and why should not they feel confident when their GM has faith that his players won’t let him down). The Canadiens who have missed the playoffs five times in the 11 seasons since winning the 1993 Cup roared back roared back from a 3-1 loss to win the opening-round series in seven games in 2003-2004. This was the magic of Gainey wizard.

Scrutiny of the team is pretty obvious and acute because the team which has experienced 24 times that how hard and thrilling it is to win in the NHL, for almost a decade failed to prove Big team, Big game, Big expectations!
