My global view of the Habs: They're not bad but they're lacking in depth. They're unable to roll out four effective lines and three nearly equal sets of Dmen. Beyond that, they're really thin. If there's even one more injury at D, I can't think of anyone in Hamilton who'd be ready to play regularly. Maybe Lapierre or Ferland could fill in on the fourth line, but I don't think either is qualified to go higher up. Kostitsyn is virtually an unknown quantity but I think he'd be the first callup after an injury to any wing on lines one to three. The goaltending has been OK but not in the highest echelon.
The fourth line personnel (Bégin, Downey, Murray, Latendresse) have zero points and are cumulatively -9.
So far, the strong point has been the penalty killing.
