Best start after 10 games since 81-82

Granted there 2 SO wins, but 1 SO loss. In the old days, that would give us 3 ties and a record of 6-1-3 but that's still quite a good kick off. This is the best start since the Habs began 1981-82 with a record of 6-0-4 (by the way they would lose their next two, 2-1 to the Isles and 5-4 in Quebec). I would give the overall benefit to that team since their wins were downright massive (9-0 vs. Buffalo, 7-2 @ Hartford, 10-4 vs. Vancouver, 7-0 vs. Boston, 4-2 @NYR and 11-2 vs. Philly!). I think that squad ended up 46-17-17 yet still got beat by the .500 Nordiques so let the comparisons end there. It's the most wins in the first 10 since 1977-78 when the Habs went 7-1-2 to start before dropping 2 of their next 4 (3 of their eventual 10 losses!). If the Habs manage to win their next two to go to 10-1-1 it'll be one of their best starts after 12 games ever.

true enough, it's pretty cool though how even if 1 line shows up we can still win games.

Awesome!

Our wins have not been massive however. Our only blowout has been against toronto. I'd like to see some more! We seem to always be doing just enough to win.

Habs had Pierre Larouche at the start of the season, but not at the end. I'm not sure who they traded him for but perhaps they'd have earned a better result if they'd kept him.

well we seem to be doing enough in one period per game to win the game... lol this is quite impressive in my opinion, but I agree with Kovalev who said something like that if it had been against a team like New Jersey we would have got destroyed... the day they're gonna play really like they can do it for an entire game, I guess we're gonna be in business :p

Even still, we are first in point percentage(85%), and among the best in the goals for AND goals against department.

The Habs 8-1-0-1 record after 10 games doesn't entirely reflect the way they have been playing since the beginning of the season. The only game they really outplayed their opponents was that 6-1 win in Toronto. Several of the other games were very tight and Price saved our a$$ more than once.

The Habs players have a tendency to be over confident and play softly until they have their back against the wall like last night. They have a very talented team but they shouldn't play with fire like that. It could catch up with them when their schedule becomes more demanding.

In term of points though it's probably the best start ever .
Anyone can confirm this ?

I was so expecting that comparison. Only Sens fans can come up with such overaly simplistic non-sensical BS.

Like Pascal said, we don't have the Titanic-load of locker problems that Emery caused.

But the difference doesn't stop there. The Sens are now a team heading for a decline that still have problems finding a goalie who brings a real consistent game, whereas the Habs are a team on the rise with a developing core that is very close in the locker room. The Sens lacked depth in the bottom 9 (and still do) with a team loaded only in top-end talent for the first line. They had players who were unhappy to play there like Redden. The year before, they went to the finals, giving them less rest over the summer. Their problems were seated at the core of their oprganization. Lack of depth and no unity in the locker room, completely the opposite of the Habs.

Leave it to Sens fans to vent their frustrations for a real bad start to their season, by hoping their wishful thinking will become reality.

Those "lions" are such ******* now.

The scary thing is that, I don't feel like our team is playing to their full potential. Yes, the Pleky's line clicked last game but they can do even more. If Koivu's line keeps being consistent, that will help our team. Our defence needs improvement but Markov's play is so good that it makes us forget about the defence performances. Price has been quite solid imo. Anyway, the key will be our defence because I feel that we don't have much holes at offence.
