They proved everyone wrong including me, who predicted them out in 4, first round breakfast food. Just like carolina the year before, washington a while back, etc., etc. This team has all the tools to be this years sleeper: Goalie who's just as good as giguere, very good offense, better than average defense with a big stopper(just like carney), and lots of defensive forwards.
Its ridiculous how the last guy got treated, because "oh yeah because theyve been on a hot streak theyre suddenly a stanley cup contender? Haw haw haw what a nidiot". Well guess what that last hot streak and this one is getting them into the playoffs....and anyone who makes the playoffs can go all the way. so calgary, montreal, Even new york can go all the way.
So guess what guys: MONTREAL IS A LEGIT CUP CONTENDER, AND THERES NOTHING YOU LEAF FANS/ BOSTON FANS CAN DO.
and no im not a habs fan, as my name should indicate.
BTW what do you think of my prediction for the finals: SAN JOSE VS OTTAWA.
Why is it neccessary to make a point in such an obnoxious, confrontational way?
Montreal is a legitimate sleeper, but I don't think many people consider them to be a legitimate contender. They definitely have the ability to go deep in the playoffs, but I wouldn't put any money on them just yet. I'm not convinced that they have the size or grit to make it out of the East.
Anyhow, can a team be a "contender" AND a "sleeper"? I don't know -- it's a semantical argument.
