Hard to answer that question,

personally after finishing 15th like that... i unfortunately wanted to finish lower again just 1 more time so we could nab someone in that insane top 5 this year

but it was clear from week 1 of this short season...something had changed in these habs.... and for the better, rooting for another tank quickly evaporated and im sure many others felt the same

was just too unpredictable to see THIS season coming...good for the habs, and good for us

I thought between 6-8. I did think we were going to make the playoffs but it was going to be a battle.

I'm one of those people that thought 5-8 was possible and thought the division may be weak(wrong on that one) and we had a chance to win it to get 3rd seed.

8th-11th range.

I'll admit it. I was wrong.

Most people in the pre-season poll went for that option, or worse. But I am sure everyone will now state they had them in the playoffs the entire time, lol

With the lockout and being pissed at the owners and players I wasnt caring for a season at all.
With the CBA settled and a shortened season and still pissed I was hoping for a top 5pick.
With the playoffs coming up and us maybe having home ice advantage in the first round, Im glad we are where we are.

Go Habs Go!

I thought maybe we had a shot at 8th if things went right but more likely we'd finish around 13th in the East.

I was thinking 6th-8th, I knew we weren't as bad as we were last year, though obviously this year dramatically exceeded my expectations.

The standings I predicted

1) Pens
2) Rangers
3) Bruins
4) Florida
5) Flyers
6) Caps
7) Montreal
8) Buffalo

Some hits and some serious misses.

Just outside the playoffs, 9th - 11th or something like that.

We weren't as bad as we were last year, but I didn't anticipate Gallagher being this good this early and solidifying our depth, or Eller making such a huge jump in his overall game and in his consistency or Galchenyuk being able to stick with the team and not look out of place or or or ... Diaz making such a difference early in the season without PK on the team, PK coming back in Norris trophy form RIGHT NOW, etc..

And to think we still have coming:

Tinordi
Beaulieu
Dietz
Pateryn
Ellis
Thrower
Collberg
Kristo
Bozon
Hudon

etc...

AND 6 picks in the top 90 of this draft, including 4 in the top 60.

Easily second place.


Had them 8-10. Really thought they would get in to the post-season, in the last game.

Not in the top 6 to be honest. Would have bet between 6 and 12

I think I said we'd have the 5th pick of the draft the day the lockout ended.

I was predicting 8-10th. Either took the last playoff position or just miss the playoff kind of team.
