Always proud to be a fan of the Montreal Canadiens and that will never change. Very proud of the effort this season and the way the players responded after a truly miserable season last year.
However, I'm also less optimistic about next year than a lot of people probably are because I think it's unlikely that Bergevin can make any significant changes over the off-season given the contracts he's signed during his tenure.
I'm proud, I see lot of positive I still think we could of won this serie vs. Ottawa, No excuse but every thing was going against Montreal.
Ultimately, I would have been just as proud and happier finishing 7 or 8 drafting 15 to 22 than finish 2nd and drafting 26th...
Character was key this season and reason of the hand success. Icing a below average team that performed above expectations playing as a team. But come PO character is important, but useless without Certain key elements (depth, experience, more depth, balanced D, more depth). We are seeing a lot of success in terms into developing our own depth. Add with some slick moves ala Prust, and team could become a contender in no time.
Except for tonight, habs gave quite the show. I only see positives about this year, and was good year to be a fan and quickly forget the dread full lock out.
