I hold out the same concerns for Ryder, Dagenais, Ribeiro and Bouillon. We're relying on a lot of guys who have not played full seasons before...Hopefully they are well enough conditioned for it...
It would be different if they were fresh from Europe or the NCAA where they play 30, - 40 games a year, Ryder, Ribs, Dagenais, Bouillon and others have all played full schedules in Juniors and in the AHL so the length of the season isn't a factor with either of them.

Plus with Souray one had to know he wasn't going to keep his torrid pace of goal scoring, you have to notice he is still playing well without the puck and still is the Habs best DMan and a solid contributer.

Your being judgemental too early, if it was a month and his play and the others were inconsistant I may worry a bit but it's not and it isn't a factor.

19 points out of a possible 24 and people are still finding problems and aren't happy?
