It’s very important, on this day after the stupendous, super-duper come-from-behind win over the Rangers, that we don’t gloat. We don’t want to be labelled as obnoxious Habs fans and gloaters. No way. Certainly we are proud today after the big win, but the job’s not finished. There’s Pittsburgh Thursday, and the playoffs not far off.
So I for one am gonna take the bull by the horns and be kind to the New York Rangers, and even back off about Sean Avery. Maybe the young man is simply misunderstood. He’s probably a kind, caring man, and that poll from other players about him being the most despised player in the league surely must have made him and his family feel bad. Sean may very well be just a great guy, and we need to acknowledge that.
