This team can succeed. Markov will help with ice time for undesserving players (I'm looking at you, Spaz!), transition game, power play and penalty kill.
Price isn't playing godlike hockey. He's playing like a good #1 goalie, better than the average, but not over his head. PP sucks (but at least is now getting shots), PK is doing great, and we're doing most of our damage at 5v5.
Has there been a good Markovless 5 on 5 Habs team since the lockout? No. This is a first. And the bad start where we got heavily outshot has been transformed into solid defensive play and discipline.
Could be a good year. Then again, Buffalo and Ottawa weren't really immense challenges.
