I have little or no faith in the current management team and the with the press and their epectations of habs players I can't see how it will ever get any better.
I'm with on that, 42 yrs a habs fan, seen the best of habs teams, i'll go as far as to say, iv'e seen the best hockey team ever ,in the history of the sport.
No team will ever come close to the habs of the 70's, back then we had 50 goal scorers sitting outgames in the playoffs because there was no room in the lineup.

Scotty knew what he was doing, always balanced lines, guys doing their jobs. He always got the most of every player. He moved players in and out of the lineup based on who they were playing. Didn't always play the best player, more like, played the man for the job.

They was a saying back in the 70's , the russians are like a well oiled machine, i
always thought that it applied to the montreal canadians moreso than the russians.

The habs show'em all, back then

I have to credit, Boston, NYI and the Oilers, teams that came close to being like the
habs.
You will never see a team like they had , again in this sport
