I'll let the stats speak for themselves.
Habs are among the only 8 teams to have made the playoffs at least 4 times in the last 5 years. All other 22 teams have made them 3 times or less, or none.

Habs are among only 5 teams to have made the playoffs 4 years in a row in the last 4 years.

Habs are in the top 10 for the number of rounds played in the last 5 years.

Top 8, top 5, top 10. That's not average.

Oh yeah, I also forgot, Habs are top 5 for man-games missed to injuries in the last 5 years.

It's all nice and well that you decided that there was only ONE stat that had any importance, but reality isn't like that.

Now before you argue any further, re-read by previous post and notice the wording 'over-average in many respects'. I just proved that.
