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.
The 07/08 club really wasn't that good. It overracheived and was bookended with 90 and 93 point seasons. It really does stick out like a sore thumb.
