Montreal Canadiens: Some Fans Think They Know It All!

Daniel ArouchianSenior Analyst IJuly 13, 2009

This article is for the fans who always complain about Canadiens General Manager Bob Gainey.

These fans always complain. No matter what Gainey does, they complain.

Why do they complain? Do they actually think that they could've convinced Vincent Lecavalier, Francois Beauchemin, or Marian Hossa to play with the Habs?

If you ask them, Gainey didn't even try to get any of these superstars to sign with the Habs. For these fans, Montreal is the only team who can have top players and it's the only team allowed to sign free agents.

Have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe, they don't want to play here?


Grow up!

What's going to change in your life that Beauchemin didn't sign with Montreal, or that Lecavalier won't be wearing the Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge?

Is it the end of the world that Gainey didn't give a contract to Saku Koivu and Alex Kovalev? 

Stop acting like you know everything that's going on in the organization, and for God's sake stop complaining. The season hasn't even started!

I know that fans have a right to their opinion, but this article goes to the fans who go overboard and complain all the time.
