The real hole that I think we might have to plug would be with a shutdown guy but we should be a playoff team at least. The playoffs? Different story.
Completely agree with everything you've said.

Montreal's team hasn't changed much since their second place conference finish last season. I can totally see them dropping a couple spots in the conference rankings, but falling 7-8 spots in one season with largely the same team, if not better, with that many bright young players developing?

It just doesn't add up in my mind. The Habs might be the one team on that list that got shortest end of the stick.
