We hear it every summer but then every single year there are new injuries and then we repeat the cycle the following summer. The fact is that in this NHL a good team is a team that still makes the playoffs if any two of its players are injured. Look at the Habs defense. Any one injury to Subban, Gorges, Markov, or Emelin and we're screwed.
The other one Habs fans say every summer is "our youth have gained a year of experience". It's a nonargument. Every team in the NHL has young players that have gained a year of experience, and in this case we're in a division that is full of young players that we play against: Seguin, Hamilton, Kadri, Bozak, Gardiner, JVR, Hodgson, Myers, Turris, etc. We're not a particularly young team, and as our youth gain a year our vets gain a year as well. Cole, Gionta, Gomez, Markov, Bourque, Moen, Budaj, Bouillon, Kaberle are all a year older.
still trying to defend you're weak ass arguement eh buddy ??i gotta give ya props for being so determined.and while you're at it ,,what exactly does "tank" mean again??
