I'd gladly take the early 80's "averageness" any day. The Habs were still one of the top teams in the league, usually in the top 5 in the regular season.

Of course you have to put things into perspective. Markov has been gone the whole season. Gomez, Cammalleri and Gionta have been injured and played very poorly. That's over a third of the whole cap hit with very little to show for. The rest of the team has performed reasonably well.
