So much pessimism and self-doubt here. Can we digest two simple concepts:

1) The Habs are a legit strong team. Not elite, but strong. This season isn't a fluke -- last year was. We've got more talent and a lot more depth than 2011 when we finished 6th in the EC. This doesn't mean we're a lock to win anything, but it means we're back in the playoffs and solidly among the top eight teams in the league.

2) We won't finish with a point % of 720. We will lose games. We will have a bad 10-game stretch at some point, possibly in the next two weeks. Boston and Pittsburgh know they can easily lose to us; doing so doesn't mean they're no longer great teams. Same with us -- if we lose to them we're still a strong team.
That's right.
