It's easy to think that THN is underrating the Habs, but realistically we could finish anywhere between 6th and 10th.

I don't see how we could do worse than last year...we have a better team , our young guys are 1 year older, we have 2 good goalies, Theo is gone and Carbonneau is our coach...

Our 2nd and 3rd are much better...

2nd and 3rd line 05-06

Bulis-Ribeiro-Kovalev
Zednik-Plekanec-Perezhogin

2nd and 3rd line in 06-07

Samsonov-Ribeirov-Kovalev
Johnson-Plekanec-Perezhogin/Kostistyn

And don't tell me that Toronto and Boston are stronger...Toronto will struggle to make the playoffs and Chara/Savard won't do miracles with a team who was 12th in the east last year

THN's predictions are just that predictions!
I for one hope they are wrong but it is always fun to read and review published opinions!

But I must agree I do not see Boston improving that much from last season!

Anyone else notice that they have Andre Savard listed as our gm?

they really should think about those kind of things when releasing a magazine or something.


they've done the same thing with the west by putting anaheim calgary and san jose in the top 3...

they probably just made their rankings according to the number of points, not the divisions.

With a young stud like Kari lehtonen healthy and a little more seasoned, its not far fetched at all to think that the thrashers will make the post season.

Sure, they lost savard, but really, I dont think its a loss thats going to severely hurt the thrashers. Kovalchuk and hossa will still put up their points and they can find someone else to ride shotgun with them.

a couple pretty good teams always miss the playoffs these days and montreal might be one of them.

I thought the rangers overacheived last season and I will be very interested to see how they come out. Jagr's attitude can change from season to season. Lundqvist is going to need to duplicate his stellar rookie season. I dont think I'd pick them to finish as high as 4th. Also, the pittsburgh ranking of 12th also bewilders me. Their major problems still have not been resolved. Their goaltending is under too much stress for an inconsistent youngster and the D is still sub par.
Savard won't be a great loss? Every single one of them had career years.
Savard - 97 points (44 better than his previous best)
Kovalchuk - 98 points (11 better than his previous best)
Hossa - 92 points (10 better than his previous best)

Hossa and Kovalchuk are both snipers and won't be able to set each other up and right now it looks like it will either be Bobby Holik, who is aging and probably won't even be able to keep up with those two, setting them up. I can guarantee that there will be a big decrease in Hossa's and Kovalchuk's point total and goal totals.

I dont expect a big decrease. Guys like kovalchuk are not only snipers but they can also create plays and room for themselves as well. I still think its a deadly PP.

Yes, their point totals might not match the previous but also keep in kind that they dont need to put up as many points if they dont need to go down to their 4th goalie again.

Lehtonen will have a big year IMO

LOL NJ, TB & Trashers above us in the standings?!? NJ Is WAY over cap and will probably be in the same boat as TB with a 3-4 player team, TB doesn't even have a solid goaltender. Trashers have a lot of good talent, but again no #1 goalie. I'm thinking this year we'll see Montreal 6th, flyers 7th, Trashers 8th, NJ 9th and TB 10th.

He's good, but I think he's being rushed and could have used a year or two of maturing as a backup to a solid #1 before making the transition.

Don't get me wrong he'll be there eventually...but he's not ready yet. Kinda like Fleury he's got TONS of talent...but until its developped he can't play at the level he could be.
