You can write whatever you like, its common knowledge that the Habs didn't have to fight for a playoff spot. It was theirs to lose.
And that's great. We did better than expected on the back of Price's stellar play and despite not managing to put the puck in the net, we actually played much better hockey than the year before.
But it wasn't the fantastic year that you blow it up to be either dude. We came in tied with Buffalo at 96 points. That's hardly awesome and wouldn't have been enough to get a spot in the West.
You come here talking like we dominated the year. You trumpet that we almost won the Division (not true) and those silly naysayers were absolutely crazy for even considering that we might miss the playoffs...
Dude, we're in one of the worst Divisions in the league. We're competing against Ottawa, TO and Buffalo for 2nd place... As an added bonus we get to face those awful clubs more than any other team in the league.
Again though, you spin it as though people who picked us out of the playoffs to be certifiably insane...
