One thing is for sure, there is going to be a TON of pressure on this team. Basically everyone is picking the Habs to finish first again and a good percentage picking them to go to the Stanley Cup Finals. I do however like the mix of youth and experience Gainey has put in the lockerroom, so I'm not overly concerned about the team crumbling.
I'll take the opinion of some HF posters that think the Habs are overrated before that of a bunch of TV analysts on TSN..... That guys obviously doesn't play hockey. And GMs? Pfffft... What do they know?

Don't post very often, so I didn't want to start a new thread, thought I'd throw it in here instead. So here's my spiel...
I know it's been said before, but Ray Ferraro is THE MAN. At first I thought it was just homerism, after listening to him on Sportsnet for a couple years, but after watching tonight's Flames/Caps games I truly believe that Ray Ferraro is THE BEST COLOR MAN IN THE GAME TODAY (honorable mention to Craig Simpson). All stuttering aside, the dude know his stuff. And he's funny to boot!
I know it's been said here before, but seriously, Ferraro rocks!
I only wish CBC had him so we'd get to hear him during the finals. Well, at least we'll hear him Thursday night (at least I hope so). Not, that Louie Debrusk is all that bad (sure beats Rob Brown.... cringe for tomorrow's PPV... man, I hope it's not Rob).
But I'm sure most of you agree, we were blessed to have Ray for as long as we did. Just thought it was worth mentioning one more time.
