I'm gonna avoid the obvious (I think we all clearly miss Stevens/Gionta) and just go with players that for one reason or another I just really liked.

I always had a soft spot in my heart for Petr Sykora, as far as retired players go.

Current players? God help me, but Mike Rupp. There is something about the way he plays, his personality, the fact that we had the same somewhat rare heart condition...I really like Mike Rupp, and I'm really REALLY disappointed that he's a Ranger now.

Really? We miss Gionta? I recall his constant shooting to the goalie's chest protector being a constant source of annoyance around here.

Retired: Obvious
Current: GOMEZ

That's right I miss Scott Gomez, I miss his skating with the puck through the neutral zone and his passing. He was a great Devil, deal with it.

I second Gomez...as hard as it is to say; his skill set would be very nice to add to this roster.

I don't think there's anyway he follows up last year's totals with similar output; he's still too young and too talented to fall off the map.

Whats Gomers current situation? Last I heard, there were rumors of him being sent down to the minors if the Habs couldnt unload him on someone else. :noclue:

My guess is the Canadiens are trying to convince one of these teams:

That 3 years of scott gomez at a 7.3 million cap hit (and roughly 5 million salary a year) is a smart move for them. But I don't see it happening after the year he had last year. I think the Canadiens are stuck with him.

If the Canadiens hold onto Gomez for one more year then they'll be able to move him pretty easily, I'm guessing. So it would be hard to sacrifice a lot when next year they probably won't have to sacrifice anything.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Well, I miss Stevens the most as he was my favorite Devil ever, but if there's one person I wish was just coming up in our system, it would be a 19 year old Scott Niedermayer.

Obviously Mogilny and Lemiuex

I won't ever forgive Bruce Driver for signing with the Rags...but he was a very steady, underappreciated defenseman for a long time. Blocked shots, played physical, decent offensive punch. Just a winning player top to bottom.

John Madden fo sho! I miss Brian Gionta too since he was always willing to get in front of the net. And of course the usual suspects like Stevens, Nieds, Lemieux. I also kinda liked Brad Lukowich.

Oliwa, nice. I did kinda miss him. But, so goes the way of the NHL enforcer. None of em stick around for an entire career with one team.

Stevens is the obvious choice but I'm going to have to also throw in Stephane Richer, my favorite player as a child.

I might be the only one, but I always like Friesen. I was happy he scored the big goal vs Ottawa in 03. One of the most real celebrations after a GWG too, wasnt really sure if he should celebrate or not. Was sad to see him go.
