1. Andrei Markov - It's not even close IMO, he's the engine of our team offensively and defensively.
2. Alex Kovalev - Habs need a healthy year from him where he's in the 80-90pt range.
3. Saku Koivu - see description for Kovalev
4. Huet/Aebischer - unlike others, I don't think either of them has to stand on their heads for us to be successful, that is, if the 3 other players listed ahead are doing their jobs.
5. Sheldon Souray - Is a true leader on this team IMO, he needs to steady his play and establish himself as a true # 2 or 3 like I think he can be.
6. Mike Komisarek - It's his time to assume a larger role on the Habs defense, needs to take over for some of the minutes Rivet plays, his progression will lessen the pressure on Markov/Souray
7. Micheal Ryder - He is this teams best goal scorer, needs to come back healthy and play like the rookie version of Ryder, not the sophmore one.
8. Sergei Samsonov - Coupled with Ryder, we finally have another right handed shot who can actually score, the Habs will need him to become a PPG player or very close to it. He's got alot to prove.
9. Chris Higgins - Is already one of the teams best all around players, he'll continue to progress and make his way up this list of top 10 most important Habs.
10. Mike Ribeiro - Like it or not, he's our # 2 center, if he falters, it might put a huge dent in the Habs plans, if he suceeds, the Habs have one of the deepest forward lines in the East.

HM - Rivet, Plekanec, Johnson, Bégin
