Did I miss something these past few days?
Koivu will be out for about a week or two at the season's start.
Zednik should be ready for the season's start, or maybe a few games into the season. (didn't he pull his groin? That takes roughly a week to heal).
Why do I think Montreal won't finish dead last?
The following people had either bad years or weren't even in the lineup:
Perrault (Nice start, horrible second half)
There are probably others, but i'm a little tired and can't think of everyone at the moment.
If even HALF of those players can turn things around, then the team is bound to improve.
I also realize that players like Markov, Koivu, Bulis, etc. had career years, but I don't think that they will sway that far away from last years production. Hell, a few may even improve upon last season.
That's my opinion, take it for what it's worth.
EDIT: Just read that Zednik strained his knee, so please ignore previous zednik comment.
