Not to pull out the clichés, but in today's NHL almost any team that can make the playoffs has a chance. Injuries to contenders, hot streaks, hot goalies... So many things can drastically change your post-season fortunes.
But I agree with you to an extent. If you were to make a list of the top contenders in the league, Montreal wouldn't be on it. But we do have a good group of hard working, character guys who I wouldn't count out of any series. The next step is to become a team that not only has a chance against any team, but would be favored against most.
