Habs record against the West teams : 5-1-1

Just wanted to let you guys know that so far 2 teams from East is dominating the West : Boston (6-2-0) and Montreal (5-1-1). All the other teams are playing for .500 or under against the West.

Unpossible!

Everyone knows the Habs are far too soft to stand before the awesome might of the big bad West and the physical brand of One True Hockey played there (tm). They should've been crushed every game!

I didn't know the Red Wings were in the Eastern Conference!

But the West is better and the Habs can't handle those teams









No really, they passed Detroit, Minny and Calgary. The only good test they failed against the West is Anaheim. We're just fine.



Can't wait to beat the nucks with Sundin in our lineup

Neat stat.
Doubt it means very much though.
7 game series are much different and much more physically draining. But all that aside there are many teams in the West (top 8) I believe the Canadiens could beat in a 7 game series.

The Ducks (healthy) and Wings are the only two teams that would strike fear in my heart.

Well, the Wings don't count. They are a soft team full of weak Euros, too, and do not play the One True Brand of Hockey (tm) without enough Good Western Canadian Boys (tm) and are therefore vastly inferior to Good Tough Western Teams (tm) who would hit them right out of the rink when they play, just like the soft Habs.

Right?

Impressive, seeing the west is the best. San Jose will be a test.

And not San Jose????

Also, you say you doubt it means much, but on a so-so record of ten games last season (3 less than right now), we got our ears pounced with the everso annoying "oh the Habs are too weak for the West". It works both ways.

Wow. Who'd have thought the Habs could beat a bunch of Don Cherry-endorsed hockey teams?

The Sharks always choke in the playoffs.

It's great we play more games against western teams. They're saving our season.

Really, because I would want to play these two teams before SJ, right now anyways.

...all they have to do is watch the tapes of the Oilers game to see how to beat them.

I must commend your use of (tm), quite funny.

I've found that the Habs play more of a Western style when they play the Western teams. The team defense is always stronger, they're more physical... you wonder how they'd do if they brought that kind of play to games within the conference.
