Montreal media recognized that the Canadiens were an iffy team, #1 defenseman - Serge Savard,was hurt and out for the season, coaching was transient - team rallied around the veterans Jean Beliveau and Henri Richard. Veteran core was very solid but the rookies were question marks - Dryden had not dominated in the AHL with the Voyageurs, Houle and Tardiff were promising but unproven, Roberto was a surprise.
Even during the Boston series, the level of team play was not consistent. This continued throughout the playoffs.
Overall media view post Bruins series was enjoy the ride and see where it goes.
