I think so far, the habs post season has been disappointing and not at all a reflection of the regular season.

Name the cliches you want, not enough experience, the playoffs are a whole new season, not enough north americans, bad referees, blah blah blah blah

The Habs are choking, plain and simple.

We might steal the next one, but it's not going to Game 7.

Youngsters are getting experience.

So with more experience...
one or two key signatures...
Maybe on FA signing...
...and we're back in the playoffs, with a good chance of winning.

That said, watching the games untill now, I think Gainey moves could be unpopular. Playoffs right now shows that Habs allready have enough talent to control a game. I think he'll go for more grit that can score more than a Begin-type, and at the right time.

Still too cute, too fancy, too much play on the outside. It produces lots of shots and the rare blowout win, but without great goaltending (game 4 Bos) and/or lucky bounces (game 1 Phi), doesn't win the close ones.

I think the comparison to the 05-07 Sabres is accurate. Fast & talented, but not tough enough to get it done in the post-season.

Don't bother calling me down for saying this either, I am a loyal Habs fan but I refuse to say they will win the series when all signs are pointing at NO.
