I think that the habs should have interesting bright spots this year. Youth will get playing time when it will be clear they won't be in the playoffs. I expect that it will be sooner rather than later. Theo will see big time rubber. Markov, Bulis and a few others will get better....which is good.

However, we don't have the line-up to compete. Our future isn't as bright as you would think. If you have a look at Buffalo's line-up you'll see what I mean. They have a future. We have a few pieces of the puzzle, we need about 3 more real prospects.

In all we won't make the playoff (unless, and that would be the only way, Theo wins the Vezina...) and we'll get another top ten pick. I see us around 13th with 14th being quite possible. As for 15th, it will depend on how Lemieux does in Pitts and if Heatley plays any games for Atlanta. It will be a long season for us.

I am a hab fan, just being realistic that is all.

Anybody else thinks Robinson will replace Julien during the course of the season???
