Standing and points prediction for Habs this year?
The training camp will end soon, most of you had the opportunity to see the depth we have at every positions, some prospects like Paccioretty, Chipchura are seriously knocking at the door while some other prospects made a good impression.. Some of us could see some exhibition games, could see how improved our kids are (especially talking about Latendresse, Price and A.Kost) and the game agaisnt Detroit where the pace of the game was amazing.. Tonight against an almost complete Bruins team, we still managed to dominate them while our big 3 was not even dressed..
Personally, if our guys stay relatively healthy, I see the Habs dominating completely our conference.. If some key players get injured for a long stretch, we still should be able to compete for the first place in the East for the simple and good reason that we have solid depth..
Personally, I see the Habs getting as much as 116 pts this year and of course, ending 1st in the conference and possibly even in the league..
The Habs will crack 100 pts again, but I think it will be a little harder than last year...there will be alot of distractions this year with the 100th celebrations etc but I do see the Habs a top 4 team in the East. First would be nice, meaning home ice through the playoffs. What it comes down to, is the team staying healthy again, although I like our depth better this year vs last year!
