It's gonna be a difficult schedule in February for the Habs with a lot more games and only the game against Toronto will be against a non-playoffs team. The others are in the playoffs right now or close (Columbus is 9th in the West)

3 back to back games so we should expect Carey price to be back with the team unless carbo and Gainey want to give Halak some NHL time (which I think would be important for his developpement because he may be our back-up next year or could used as trade pait)

By that time, Obyrne should be back as well.

That home and home versus Briere will be a lot of fun and also very important to move up the standing.

anyways, discuss.

i see toronto, florida, the islanders, rangers, atlanta, buffalo and columbus out of the playoffs. and all are junk compared to montreal. philly we play well and ottawa could be for first overall in the east and heatley is out and both goalies right now (emery and gerber) are junk. plus we cost gerber his job in carolina.
out of 14 games or 28 points we collect 22 and secure a playoff spot... and perhaps home ice in the play offs...

It's a lot of games but the calendar has been friendly so far, i think it's gonna alright. The depth will come in handy at some point.

I don't see the schedule as being that bad. 9 home games and 6 road games...that worries me a little. If this team can find a way to win at home then they should be fine.

Ottawa isn't the same team as they were when we first played them, and neither are we. We have greatly improved and Ottawa hasn't got as great goaltending lately, these are games that CAN be won. I just hope we have Price in net vs toronto just because i can't stand losing to them, even if this means Price plays one game and goes back to the 'dogs i'll be happy. lol

Similar to the thoughts of other posters on other threads, I agree that Price might come back for the TO matchup as he's been solid againts the Laffs. The young Price will probably be pumped for a comeback and Febuary might not be so hard after all, with Huet on a decent sequence and the Habs who've been solid all through January. We have players who are riding the pine and who feel they should play and that always comes in pretty handy in a tight schedule.

This is THE month of the season, not as a break or make situation, but rather if we'll be hussling for a low-tier spot for the playoffs comes the end of the season or if we'll be a lock. If the Habs can manage to garner around 20 points in Febuary, which is feasable, the lock will be in IMO.

A tight schedule is not always tantamount to a sub-par record in the same span. With the team relieved of not reproducing the execrable sequence of January 2007, they might just feel it's their time to shine. Febuary might just show that the Habs are the real thing.
