Guest BoomBoomGeoffrion Posted October 10, 2006 Report Share Posted October 10, 2006 So far this is exactly what I thought Sammy would do on a line with Kovy and Pleks...NOTHING...This line combo just does not work at all...It makes no sense having 2 guys in Sammy and Kovy who want the puck on the boards at all times, especially with no sniper to dish it off to...Only a matter of time before Sammy is on the 3rd line watch. Not that its a bad thing but that line def. needs to be broken up First, I live near Boston as well. We should meet up and go cheer for the Habs at some games in the gaahden. Second, I was very apprehensive when we got him, but for different reasons. I really don't care how he's playing--my concern is that he is cut from the same cloth as too many other Habs players, so why go out and get the same exact guy we already have? My feeling is, there are only so many small guys I can cheer for. Bouillon and Koivu are my heroes, and Samsonov is just one too many little dudes. And Wow, is he ever tiny! As for his playing style, he seems to be too much like Kovalev. Why did we go out and get the same player, only this time in a smaller, and more injury-prone package?! What we need is size, experience, grit, and scoring. Samsonov is none of those things, and he was the only big free agent we signed. I have no use for Samsonov on the Habs. He'd be fine on some other team, but he's redundant here. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
