As an outsider, my opinion is that the Habs have enough talent on the current roster to be a playoff team in the East. Obviously, the roster needs to be bolstered somewhat and your young players need to mature before evolving into a contender (much like the current Leafs team), but there should be no doubt that this team is currently underachieving, which is a clear indictment of the coaching staff.

Therrien has lost the respect of the locker room because of his unsubstantiated and unwarranted off ice comments this season, and it has been quite apparent lately.
I'm afraid that this is true. With a coach that must communicate in French, there's not much left available out there.
As far has the team underperformed, I just think they over achieved last year and drop down back to earth.
