Just a one word answer is sufficient....YES or NO

NO because we still have at least one more game to play

I think Montreal can still come back and win, they win on Saturday anything is possible. We have out played th Flyers, the only thing is they have most of their chances...we have not. We have to bury our opportunities, get back to the basics and get the original lines together and get the offensive players in the line up to counter the Flyers with more speed and offense for them to try and contain.

Yes, I think we're done.

I think so far, the habs post season has been disappointing and not at all a reflection of the regular season.

Name the cliches you want, not enough experience, the playoffs are a whole new season, not enough north americans, bad referees, blah blah blah blah

The Habs are choking, plain and simple.

We have to win 3 straight games, 2 of those games being at home. If we win on Saturday then I think we win in 7.

Yes.

The failure to adapt to the Flyers game and implement stategies that would clearly help (better utilizuing screens on the PP and pushing the limit after the play in the goal crease) is indicative of the single minded style of play the Habs live and die by. And that style of play just isn't good enough when your players fail to finish as often as we have the past two games.

We might steal the next one, but it's not going to Game 7.

Don't even go there, Montreal isn't getting bad calls on them and they are getting their PP opportunities...Streit/Markov aren't shooting from the point on the PP, players are looking to Kovalev too much and in the playoffs he is being shadowed more and players like Higgins aren't burying their chances or picking up the slack.

Montreal has no one to blame but themselves, it is quite fixable but Carbo has to put the original lines back together and dress his offensive players like Ryder and Grabs over Lappy, Begin and Latendresse.

That's pretty much what I said. The referree thing was just an example for a bad excuse.

Sadly YES for this year... But man, NO for the next 5 years.

Youngsters are getting experience.
and Gainey and co. have a chance to see the real nature of some.


So with more experience...
one or two key signatures...
Maybe on FA signing...
...and we're back in the playoffs, with a good chance of winning.

That said, watching the games untill now, I think Gainey moves could be unpopular. Playoffs right now shows that Habs allready have enough talent to control a game. I think he'll go for more grit that can score more than a Begin-type, and at the right time.

No

Two out of the three remaining games are at home and the Habs are tough to beat at the Bell Centre

I woke up and thought that about the Rangers this morning. It's not over for them, either.

Depends on Biron really... anyone know what hotel/room he's staying in? I've got a really good "juice" that may help him out.

The statistics and common sense that has been bubbling in my brain have been telling me yes.
My heart is screaming out an emphatic NO!
