I agree with Geeman. Bob Gainey, even with all the trust we put in him, cannot can’t turn things around overnight. It will take time, but for now (2003-2004), the Habs will have to play over their heads and work harder than the other teams just in order to make the playoffs. It showed last night against Philly. They’re in the top tier of the league and they are faster, stronger and bigger (how about just plain better) than us. Saku’s return will make us an improved team, but
a) don’t expect him to be at full speed for at least 8 – 10 games after his return
b) he cannot carry the entire team on his shoulders. Even if some players are carrying their weight, others aren’t.

That’s why our “Stanley Cup” this year is to make the playoffs – anything more would be gravy. Beating Boston tonight would be a step in the right direction. (At least a split vs Boston, and I'll be happy).
