MT had a good first season with the habs during his first go-around too. He far exceeded anyone's expectations on the back of Theodore's MVP season. Its still amazing that team made the playoffs with no koivu for the majority of the season, and then kocked off Boston.

Jury is still out whether he can last a few years though. Actually, you would have to go back quite a ways to find a coach that lasted 5 years in this organization.

Anyways, I had little doubt that this team would be better this year. Lower expectations, and a healthier lineup alone would accomplish that. So far, this team has performed beyond anyone's wildest expectations, but again, we'll see how it is when the honeymoon period is over.
