Oh come on, you really think they're a team that'll finish with 110+ points? That's what they were on pace for 40 games in. This is likely the team regressing to what they really are, hopefully when everything evens out they're still a good team.
I dunno I remember not a long time ago when wild were 1st in the LEAGUE after 41 games and i think they finished 8th at the end of the season . Leafs also have always a strong first half before collapsing
While that is true, the Habs haven't really shown too many bad signs on the first 45 or so games, not until now. Judging a whole season based on these past 5 games is much worse than judging the season based on the first 40, wouldn't you agree?
