WTF happened?
And we aren't getting **** out of all the other young players (save for Halak)...
I also wonder if this was a lot of change for the younger players on this team and many have had trouble adjusting.

The list of changes in one off season is mindboggling.

-A major overhaul of the roster including the "core" which these players began their career with.
-New Head coach
-new assistant coach
-new goalie coach
-new system

To me, the NHL environment for these young players hasn't been a stable one in their entire career. Many of these guys have already went through 3-4 coaches in a very short NHL career. Could this be why Montreal struggles to develop youth at the NHL level?
