I can't shake the feeling we're riding a hot streak and we will regress. I'm not sure how big a believer I am in advanced stats, but I did take a gander at ours this morning. We've got ten guys who are currently playing at or above 1050 PDO, and five of those are above 1100! That situation will not hold (for reference, nobody on last year's Habs finished the year above 1027; the stat, which is the sum of a player's on-ice shooting % plus on-ice save %, tends to regress to 1000 over the long run).

We are still in the "small sample size" phase of the season and can't draw any firm conclusions.
