Every team can have a good record during the season if everything goes well for them, but the regular season means nothing. When the games get more intense, the other team's defense get thighter, Habs are inneffective, even against bottom teams.

Bottom line is that we're not a contender this year. So let's think about the future instead of trading our youth for UFAs.
I agree on that. We don't have to rebuild. We just have to clean a few things and things should be better. We have a good core so it's easy to build on that. And if we do make a move for a big player, lets hope he'll be signed for at least another year.
