I do. My personal feeling on those teams is that Irvin's strategies pushed his teams to the limit from game one, which made them super effective when everyone was healthy. But over the season and through the playoffs, they wore out. While Day would conserve energy, forgo regular season success (Once too much.) and have a much fresher team at the end of the day.
I may be wrong. But I would rank in order from most responsible to least responsible for some great Habs teams not having more success:
2. Depth forwards
5. First line forwards
