Although I can certainly respect expecting excellence if you guys are using the 70s Habs as your measuring stick I hate to break it to you but you're in for a long wait. For one all the other teams are good now and there a a lot more of them, for second the perfect alignment of elements that came into play for that team to be so good for so long I doubt repeat themselves in a lifetime. It's just such a different league now and the difference between losing and wining is paper thin.

I can appreciate not wanting to finish 8th every year and just squeaking into the playoffs. But it could be a lot worse (see Toronto with over half of decade of hockey and no playoffs at all) and I do believe that with the emergence of young players who obviously care a lot about this team like Price, Subban and Pacioretty I'd say things are looking a lot more positive than negative as a whole.
