2012-13 is a transition year. Bergevin is focusing on 2013-14.

If it wasn't for injuries last year we would have had a lot more points in the standings. Markov alone changes the makeup of this team drastically.
And our new and improved bottom-6 gives definitely makes this team better. Last year at some point we had Palushaj, Geoffrion and Weber on our bottom-6. That's ridiculously bad.
I'm gonna say it right now, if this team isn't ''cursed'' again i.e. we do not suffer too many injuries and not 100% of the team underachieves like last year, we're gonna be in the hunt for the playoffs (i.e. 85-90 pts)
There's also the possibility that most players play up to their potential or overachieve (Eller, Bourque, Diaz, Leblanc, Gionta, Plekanec, Emelin, etc) and we overachieve just like the year we finished 1st and beat the Bruins in the 1st round with a young Price between the pipes.
