WSH

then you have teams that are similar to Montreal

Columbus
Buffalo
NYI
Carolina

Montreal will be in a dog fight for the 9th spot let alone number 8

Last year was a fluke, had it been a full regular season Montreal would have missed the playoffs and would have been better for it.

Expectations are now through the roof and the on ice product cannot meet that expectation.
So basically just about all the teams who made it last year are going to make it again this year, except the Habs, who will do much much worse? Seems reasonable.
