Habs being a contender this year?
I know some people think we lack toughness, a solid top 4 defenseman and an elite center, and they are probably right, but with the add of Markov and Cole to the line-up, Habs just get way better than last year, for the first time in years, we have scoring depth on our 3 first lines, while Cole isnt overly physical, he still is a presence on the ice, a very tough guy to play against, a guy like Blunden or Conboy could eventually bring some real toughness on the fourth line.. We sure lack elite talents up front but unlike Pittsburg that have 2 elite centers and another pretty good one in Stall, they still lack depth badly on their wings.. I think our offense will be dangerous cause our top 9 is entirely filled with quality players, no more "fillers".. If we can avoid major injuries and that a kid like Diaz or Emelin are ready to assume a top 4 role, I think the Habs fans can expect a wonderful season and maybe even more..
