Except that the Kings are structured
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
, 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.
How come? This year they weren't going to make the playoffs until they sign a new coach. Last year, they finished 7th, the year before that 6th, and before that they did not even make the playoffs. And you say they are a top 3 team in the west?
