And unfortunately we're coming off a season where an 8th seed won the Cup, so that naturally creates some expectation that all you have to do is sneak into the playoffs... Except that the Kings are structured nothing like a typical 8th seed, and will probably challenge for a top-3 seed in the west this year if they stay healthy.

Even with a patch job the Habs are a bubble team at best, and that's before we know whether Therrien has a net positive or net negative influence on the roster (my best hope is he's a small net positive; my fear is that he ends up a significant net negative).

We ain't Cup contenders this year. Not even close.
