Its the shootout losses that are the big factor. Going 1-5 isn't helping at all. At playing actual hockey this season Montreal is 12 wins, 13 losses and 6 ties which isn't all that bad all things considered

The shootout is largely a glorified coin toss so I'm not particularly concerned about a bunch of loser points there. The real scandal isn't the loser points that so many people hyperventilate about, its the SO wins. At playing actual hockey Montreal's record is a lot better than New Jersey who has 9 actual wins but has gone 7-1 in the SO.
