The Habs are a heck of a lot closer to a championship than they were 8-10 or even 3 years ago(Koivu/Kovalev team).

Lots of quality players have been added/developped in the last 5 years...Price Subban Pacioretty Cammy Gionta Cole Eller Desharnais Yemelin Gill Gorges Weber are all guys that are currently above average player or have the potential to be within a couple years.
