What's the MOST important success factor ?

I understand that there are many factors contributing to Habs success this season, but what's the most important ? Try to pick just one or two reasons.

I think it's a combination of all, not just one.

I also don't get the ''over performance of Subban''. He's over performed?

Create "new Players and Rookies" category and you have your answer.

1. Under-performed last year
2. Rookies stepping in and bringing tremendous depth offensively
3. Having a competent coaching staff

thing is the new management et al. includes bringing in all the other elements. They're not really mutually exclusive. It's the work ethic, combined with the system combined with special players. Apart from the slump, what an exciting team to have watched this year.

Still room for improvement from a few guys and that's in a way a good thing.

As the most important I voted new management/coach/system. That said it's definitely a combination of things. New management wouldn't have changed much of anything if we had not had Markov, the Gallys, etc. So what's more important ? Hard to tell.

Luck. With the way we are playing recently, there is no way we could have made the playoffs in a 82games season.

I couldn't disagree more. And the last 2 games are proof of that. We hit a little slump that's all.

the two Gallys. Management has very little to do with it. It's a different team.

This ^^^

Add to it following the system and we have a team that performs well.

Last night was so different from the team that we watched going through the "slump". They forechecked harder, were more aggressive on the puck on defense (forwards) and did not play the passive PK which shut down the Leafs since the refs were calling penalties last night.

The roles of Gally, Chuckie, Prust, Tinordi (yes, him too last night) Boullion (he plays the bottom pairing so he is no Subban) have been huge for this team. Ryder needs to get over whatever problem he is having and help carry this team in the playoffs.

Yeah and the Bruins are lucky to have made the PO too.

Pretty much.

Those two gave us offensive depth we weren't expecting and it has a major impact in our team. Something we lacked big time last season. We don't have only 1 scoring line anymore.

It had nothing to do with luck. Luck is winning one game despite being outplayed. Over 48 games the sample size is big enough that luck isn't a factor.

Not even remotely true, one full season isn't enough to eliminate luck as a factor.

Desire to win is back and the new management and some players and rookies do the work needed for the job to be accomplished, Markov was a factor especially at the beginning of the season but he's been less than stellar defensively. The team wins as a team since there's no superstar except PK and the team loses as a team meaning that everyone comes back the next game with better performances.

I voted for coaching/management/system and over/underachieving.

I like your options in the poll though, you put in some good options.

Back pressure. When our forwards are back checking hard it cuts scoring chances down and allows the defense to stand teams up.
