Habs will have to be better at holding a lead. If they manage to do this, they will be dangerous for any team. Until then, they are a decent-good team but not without it's holes.
Speaking of boston-montreal, last game we played montreal controled the pace for over half the game but didn't capitalize. They had a weak 3rd and boston won 2-1. As long as habs do this, they may be a playoff team but still pretenders rather than contenders.
Granted, there's still time to learn for the habs but for now, that's one thing that cost them a few games.
