What's more likely, Habs get 100pts, or miss playoffs?

Am I the only one that has a very difficult time trying to figure out where the Habs will fit into the Eastern conference standings? I think I picked them to miss the playoffs for the last two seasons, thinking their roster had some serious holes. I'm thinking now that their success can be attributed to coaching, and certainly in the last season, goaltending.

I'm not so sure that they can rely on another stellar season from Price, and the division appears to be stronger than in the last few years.

So my question is: Is it more likely that the Habs will get 100pts in 2011-2012, or miss the playoffs?

100 points. Any Leaf fan opinion on this is automatically invalid.

Miss the playoffs.

There is a giant cluster**** from 6-11 that really could go either way.

Miss the playoffs. They are in the 2nd tier of teams and I find such teams rarely get 100 points in the East.

I think the Habs absolutely will make it, but with around 95-98 pts.

In that case I'm going with 100 points.

Seriously though, I think it's more likely that they suffer a rash of injuries and miss the playoffs than get 100 points.

Miss playoffs, they got close to 100 last year but I see them getting 92-94 points. But if Price plays the same way and markov is healthy then yeah

No, I don't think the Leafs have a shot at 100 points.

I'd say Leafs are 2/3 in playoffs 1/3 out. Habs are 95% in playoffs, 5% out with injuries, only a 2-3% chance of 100 points.

Leafs sure as hell ain't 2/3 in the playoffs. Probably around a 1/3 chance that they make it IMO. Probably end up around 9-11 range.

We had 96 pts last year.

I think we can easily get 4 more points.

Miss playoffs. I think they have a pretty good team, but I can see 10 teams fighting for a playoff spot in the East: Caps, Pens, Bruins, Sabres, Flyers, Tampa, Rangers, Habs, Canes and Devils. I think they're a 7th to 9th place squad, about 95 points.

As far as the odds are concerned, I'd be more willing to bet, as a Habs fan, that we'll miss the playoffs. That said, I really doubt we'll miss the playoffs. We have a solid system, and we made it last year despite missing important elements (I know, this has been shoved down everybody's throat over and over again since the end of the season, and even before that).

We won't get home ice. But we're always a team to fear in the playoffs.

I think 100pts is more likely. But I don't expect either scenario. The team isn't markedly worse or better than they were last year. Addition of Cole and loss of Wizniewski are the biggest changes and I don't think either will change things that much.

Tougher division and conference.

...although I still really think they'll make it, but will less than 100 points.

If they can stay healthy then they can for sure crack 100.

Of course...the last two seasons have shown that they can't stay healthy so yeah.
