The habs have won 11 games out of 16 so far. Taking a look at that stat all on its own one might conclude that they are playing very well...
Stats can be deceiving...
A closer look at the opponents they've beaten:
- Tampa Bay
- Florida (twice)
- New Joisey
How many of the above teams will make the playoffs? Exactly. Now shut up.
Next.. its the way they're winning... The habs have only blown out their opponent in
game (Buffalo, 6-1 Victory A MONTH AGO)... The habs have been blown out TWICE (Ottawa, Toronto)... In other words, they are getting blown more than they are blowing.. or blown out? Blown in.. anyway... the blowing goes against the Habs and the rest of the games have been close affairs where the habs have simply won because their opponents made one or two more mistakes than they did. The habs aren't BEATING teams.. they are winning.. but their wins occur from their opponents BEATING THEMSELVES.
Blowing and beating-it, the habs will continue on this run for sure and come out with a winning record, but don't be fooled.. the over the top optimism on this board about the habs is juvenile and doesn't recognize the real factors.. this team is not going anywhere..
