Samsonov has officially stated why he has sucked this year... Yeah that's right. He regrets having signed with the Habs
last summer. Frankly, I wish they hadn't signed him. He's a 2nd or 3rd string player at best, and with his price tag, you would think the team could have bought someone that could at least perform with a little more consistency (9 goals and 17 assists so far this season).
Well the drama will probably not help the Habs right now, who have hopefully ended their downward spiral with late game heroics from another underachieving player, Kovalev, in their last game against the Blues. They play again tomorrow night, and one can only wonder if Samsonov will be another healthy scratch, or a 3rd line floater. Either way, I can think of other ways of keeping the bench warm that cost a hell of a lot less than $3.5 Million a year.
