Guillaume is Gone

  • The media bandwagon has grinded to a halt. Guillaume Latendresse was cut and sent back to his junior team in Drummondville before Sunday’s final pre-season game. After Marcel Hossa was traded, speculation increased that the Canadiens would keep the 18 year old for the year but it was not to be.

    This was a smart decision and as Bob Gainey put it an “easy decision” to make. Latendresse would see little to no playing time this year on the Canadiens, halting his development.

    Latendresse will go back and dominate the Junior ranks with the confidence of a strong NHL training camp.
    He will most likely gain International experience representing Canada in the World Junior Championship. At 18 years of age, he has plenty of time to get even better and it won’t be long before seeing him sport the CH.

    The last cuts have been made and the 2005-2006 Roster is pretty much finalized. The Canadiens will play their first NHL game on the road Wednesday against the rival Bruins.

    Latendresse was the best player on the ice on tuesday for the habs. He is fighting for the right winger spot with perezoghin, grabovski and kostitysn. Andrei had a good game last nite but he can’t keep the puck in along the board. grabovski is now injured and perezoghin plays with absolutly no emotion. At least Latendresse is physical. He got into a scrap with Mara and did not back down. The kid has fire in his blood.

    Why are you people running this site not talking about how perezoghin played like shit while he is competing with Latendresse for the spot.

    You guys should start watching 110 % and sport 30 and get real hockey new.
