Wait 20 games before saying at "blank" player or "blank" team is good or bad this year, simply say weather they had a good or bad game because that's all you have sufficent information to comment upon. At this point an 8-1 win while outshoting 55-12 or 1-8 loss while outshot 12-55 would not sway me in either direction. Because these are single games in a season of 82.
In the case of the Habs it's because they're laboring without the services of some key players. Their D looks particularly vulnerable. As for the Canucks, I'd say that Luongo is letting them down.
