IMO the only way the habs even make the playoffs is if there are MAJOR injuries to Boston, and to a lesser degree Ottawa, Buffalo and Toronto. Mtl wins division and lands in 3rd place (not due to points).
I look at the East and see Pittsburgh, Philly, NYR, Washington and Boston(barring major injuries) as automatic for the playoffs, I see Carolina making major improvements and probable for the playoffs....so of the 2 remaining playoff spots, it'll be a dog fight between Montreal, Ottawa, Buffalo, Toronto, Florida and Tampa Bay...what I don't see is that top 6 forward needed to contend. I don't see several other teams being worst than last year(TB, Flo, Ott, Tor) who all ended higher in standings than Mtl. I do see Montreal CLOSER to landing in a bottom 5 in the East rather than a top 8! As such I do see Montreal CLOSER to landing a lottery pick (and chance to land McKinnon) than a Stanley Cup!

There are too many IFs this year... But, just like last year, I'll watch every game! win or lose, cheering all the way.
