By any chance, does anyone know who they put in the top 10 players for the upcoming season?
As for the Habs ranking at number eight, I don't think it was ridiculous, on the contrary I find it's too conservative, as if THN can't get out of their comfort zone. Montreal does have an interesting team. It lacks a a defining star on offense, its defense is full of question marks, and a lot of Montreal's hopes ultimately fall upon a goalie who was at one point derided by the fans.
On the positive side, Montreal could very well have three good scoring lines, so long as some bouncebacks are made in the top-6. Defensively, they have a unit with tons of potential. And in nets, if Price keeps it up from last year, they have one of the game's best in nets.
So quite frankly, THN going with 8th place is an eye-roller.
