Vegas' Jonathan Marchessault absolutely destroys Habs fans

As we all know, the Montreal Canadiens dealt former captain Max Pacioretty to the Vegas Golden Knights in September of 2018. Some Montreal fans are congratulating themselves for Pacioretty's success in the 2019 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs and Quebec native, Jonathan Marchessault, has had enough.

While some Habs fans believe it's because of them that the Vegas Golden Knights and Max Pacioretty are succeeding in the playoffs, Cap-Rouge, Quebec native Jonathan Marchessault has had enough of people still thinking it's because of Montreal that Pacioretty is doing well in the Playoffs against the San Jose Sharks.

During a press conference before last night's Game 3 against the San Jose Sharks, Marchessault was asked what he thought about some indecent Habs fans taking credit for Max Pacioretty's success within the organization.
It's him [Pacioretty] that's in the Playoffs, and not Montreal, Marchessault told Le Journal de Quebec. He's one of the reasons that we're in the Playoffs again this year. He filled a need that the franchise needed. He's a leader. It's easy to see a guy that does a lot on the ice. He ups his physical game, and has a hell of a shot. We're really lucky to have him here and we do not regret the trade. 
 Although Pacioretty isn't the unique reason the Golden Knights are in the Playoffs this season, but some pretty neat additions have helped the franchise in their second year. When the organization added Mark Stone at the Trade Deadline, the team has went 12-5.

What are your thoughts on Marchessault's comments?
