That means that the team isn't a train wreck. This goal differential is better than a few teams ahead of us in the general standing (Colorado, Florida, Winnipeg, Buffalo, Minnesota, Calgary). The season hasn't been blow-outs after blow-outs. The Canadiens are a competitive team.

I'm not trying to defend Gauthier or Martin or Cunneyworth. All I'm saying is, to those who think this season is a complete waste, this team isn't even that bad. It is not unwatchable. You watch with the hope that they can win and most game, they are in it.

Compare that to last year's Oilers... Their fans weren't even hoping for a win when they tuned in a game; they were hoping for their team not to get destroyed.
I did a GDT not too long ago and that stat really stood out. If anything, it shows with a half decent power play, the Habs would probably in a playoff spot.
