We had a great TV moment after the Montreal Canadiens game, as journalist Renaud Lavoie had a lot to say on TVA Sports.

An entertaining sequence.

Renaud seems to be losing patience with Montreal Canadiens forward Joel Armia, and he's not the only one.

The Finnish forward has had another tough series of games in Florida, and it's starting to be enough for many.


"1-1 in the third period, anything is possible. How is it that a veteran like Joel Armia, who struggles to stay in the National League because he's put on waivers and no one wants him, takes a penalty like that in the offensive zone?"

"We could forgive everything if he played up to his talent, but he doesn't. So if you don't, don't come and do what you did against the Panthers to start the third period." - Renaud Lavoie

As you will see in the video, he can't believe it.

Maxim Lapierre then went even further.

"I'm going to go further than that... it's the organization's fault. When a guy plays one game out of 10 for 10 years, he has no business in the lineup. We're all happy when he has a big game, but he doesn't belong there, there aren't players like that with the Panthers." - Max Lapierre

And you, do you agree? Do you believe that Joel Armia absolutely doesn't belong in the Habs' lineup?
