No one who supported this view wanted the Habs to lose this year, we just thought that the odds were high they they would.
The only 'mistake' we made was underestimating the Habs potential play this year. And almost no one who disagreed with rebuilding stated that Habs would be .750 at the half way mark either.
There was no mistake in supporting rebuilds for losing teams. That is still a valid proposition.
I do not take one post back on this thread.
