Lafleur On Kovalev

Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette quoting Guy Lafleur,

- “If I were in (Alex Kovalev’s) skates, I’d have played my last game for the Canadiens.

No player with his talent would accept being humiliated like that. ... I don’t know what (Bob) Gainey is trying to prove in front of everybody.”

- “If you’re paying guys $4 million, $5 million a year, give them the tools to make sure they’ll produce. You just can’t switch lines and try things every night and hope something will come out of it.”

- “I don’t think this club has a team spirit. They don’t play for each other. They’re not playing as a team and they’re not ready to sacrifice themselves to win.”
