Granted, there is still the offseason to make changes, but we have some pretty serious issues that need sorting out. Not to mention some bad contracts that will limit our flexibility. It could be another year of mediocrity before we can get out of these bad contracts and before the new Hamilton wave is ready to step in.
From where I was sitting, there were questions surrounding:
-Markov (injury)
-Subban (inevitable sophomore dman slump)
-Cole (change of scenery)
-Pacioretty (injury)
-Emelin (new to NA)
-Gorges (injury)
-White (injury)

While it's taken 3/4s of the year, and started out horribly, every one of those questions have been answered (eventually) in a positive way, and don't look like question marks heading into next season...

Habs are bouncing back big time next year, mark my words!
