Wow, do we ever disagree on the Habs! We have a team that will make the playoffs if we play and can avoid injuries to multiple key personnel. A healthy Habs team, with the free agent additions we made, will compete and do well. Last year was an abberration, not the standard.
By the way, please correct me if I am wrong, but when they do this type of lottery thing, isn't there some clause that stipulates no team can rise or drop more than 5/8/10 (not sure which number) spots from the previous year's draft? If so, we end up with a range of 1st to 8th (assuming a 5 spot differential) or 1st to 13th (if it is a 10 spot range). In any case, I would rather we play the season (shortened as it will be), make the playoffs (we will) and then at least have a chance to win the Cup (call me a crazy dreamer)! GO HABS GO!!!!
