I disagree.

I am usually not one to exaggerate, in fact I'm probably the most neg guy on this board, but it is increasingly looking like come playoffs in 5 years, no opposition no. 1 center in the playoffs will be as dangerous as Gally, except for Sid and RNH.

Don't forget, all the other really good centers right now in the LNH are going to be 5 years older by then, and the younger guys who are drafted next year will not be ready.

As Agent Smith said in the matrix: 'This is our time.'

5 years is a long time of course. Anything can happen.

And it is stupid of me to predict this of course, but that is the way it is looking right now.

Loosen up and get used to elite offensive talent. It's been a long time, and Habs deserve it.
