Ahhh quebec quebec quebec.....

personally they got four lineswhich are quality
<this is why it confused me when they brought up Rene Corbet and Dwane
yes, their defense is weak, but down in Cornwall, the ACES got a quality
defense with one of the best GPA against<shumulstra has a better GPA
than Snow> we had the best power play before we went 0-8 against
binghamton<Hirsh was excellant for Bingo> and the second best at stoping
the power play..... so we got a great future....
anyways. Janne Laukkanen is going to be a very good defen***.. he has
developed to play the North American style of hockey from playing for
cornwall instead of being locked out in the NHL, credit this to Janne
who was not mad about playing in the AHL and not the NHL at first...

Mike ---> Go ACES! <---

Montreal didn't have a money goalie in 1986, either.  Of course, you
don't become a "money goalie" until you prove yourself in the post season.
But Fiset hasn't had that opportunity yet.  Let's give him a shot at
proving himself before we write him off as inadequate.

The Nords are still a young team.  They'd be foolish to mortgage their
goaltending future just to win the Cup this year.  If it doesn't happen
this year, there is still a "next year" for Quebec, while there may not
be for older teams like St. Louis or Buffalo, to name a couple.
In the unlikely event that Fiset falters in the playoffs, Pierre Lacroix
may wish to evaluate the situation, but Fiset must be given the chance
to either succeed or fail before Lacroix makes any desperation moves.
