The 99-100 is a whole different topic as the Habs still started 100 years ago. They just haven't played 100 season.
Exactly its also losing a year of talent evaluation and there were no NHL trades during that time.

We also saw significant changes in the game post lockout, so the plan, and type of players to acquire post lockout also had to be changed on the fly. The lockout year should not really count and we are entering year 5 of Gainey's five year plan.

And look where we are... A favorite in the Eastern Conference. Competing not just for a playoff spot, but a legit cup contender right now.

Go Bob Go.
