Ok. I'm probably wrong. And i'll try, again, to look at it the way people tell me in this thread, like I try every year.

So Plekanec is perfect as a first line center with "around" 70 points.
So habs play well and are unlucky with injuries.
So Camy is ok. Gionta is ok. Price is Ok. Cole is a great addition. Kosty is OK. Gorges is ok.

Well... That doesn't work. I'm tired of watching this team fighthing for a playoff spot. Everything is not ok and I'm now thinking that the players of this team are seriously overrated.

Plekanec is nothing more than a PK specialist who is average in every other aspect of the game.
Gionta is on the wrong side of its peak.
Gorges has heart but is nothing more than a 4-6 d-man
Price is a good goalie, like there are 10-12 others in the league.
Subban is gold, but people who think he can allready assume #1 duty are dead wrong, and it's not a given that he will be a #1 one day.
Max Pac is a good player, but not a difference maker.
Eller is a good player, but probably won't ever be a true offensive threat. He would be better off developping into the percfect third line center he can be.
The team doesn't have any difference maker, and none is coming.
Desharnais is too easily pushed away from the puck. He would be ok with Cole and Max Pac in a second line role if the team had a true first line.
Even with Markov, the d-men are a really weak group.

If I'm wrong, then I don't understand why the team has such a hard time making the playoffs.
