I honestly prefer this team to the 07/08, the two are comparable in all aspects but age and depth. With all the good young players, rookies and prospects the Habs have in their system, they are set for a nice long while.
Our glaring weakness is the need for a great prospect at the LW position.
If we can get a prospect that projects highly at that position we will be laughing. Bozon and Hudon are decent prospects, but they are still projects at this point and Hudon is another undersized player.
