Last year showed that predicting the winners of a conference has essentially become a crapshoot. Its all about being able to play in the new NHL. Montreal certainly has the team speed to be able to do this quite well, and heck, no one saw Carolina or Buffalo as contenders last season and look what happened. Of course Montreal could win the conference. But they are not, IMO among the 'elite' teams in the league.

They are in a group of as many as 15 teams that could do VERY well if things fall into place, but could also miss the playoffs. The increased parity in the NHL is becoming quite apparent IMO.
