No, the Leafs are actually 12th. Just wanted to get more views.

Anyway, the rankings seem fair: http://www.tsn.ca/fantasy_news/feature/?fid=548

You got me. I probably wasn't gonna read the thread if you would've named it otherwise. For a split-second there, I was getting ready to type a swear-filled post.

Key Injuries: None.

Are 2 of our top 6 D-men not key?
Either than that though the ranking is pretty good.

They hardly, if ever, listed our key injuries last year either, iirc.

We were first last year for a little while. Beginning of season, and then on that hot streak later on.

Everyone knows that the Habs' D-men suck, so who cares if two of them are hurt? It's not like they're any good.

More seriously, in TSN's defense Dandy and Bouillon are nominally our 5th and our 6th defensemen -- even though it's not such a significant distinction given Montreal's defense-by-comittee approach.

Well, our record with the Leafs is nearly identical now, so I don't see why the two teams should be far apart in the rankings.

Because the Habs have had a tougher schedule (ie. Buffalo twice!) and have done well against good teams. They've also beat Toronto, and beat Colorado who beat Toronto.

Well, considering that Montreal usually plays better against stronger teams it isn't really an advantage. Chicago anyone?

Chicago with Havlat, Handzus, and Khabibulin (on his game) is an over-.500 team, or at least was at the time. Different story now, of course.

Add that to the emotional and tiring Calgary game the night before and you get what happened: a game in which Montreal skated better overall, but lost.

Chicago might be a .500 team that we couldn't score against. Chicago was a .500 team that let in over 5 goals per game on average, yet you didn't know their net existed for our team in that game. I want no 'tough schedule' excuses from a good team which Montreal supposedly is. Because teams like Buffalo and Carolina had played more games in shorter period of time and didn't fall apart. In my opinion, this is what differentiates good teams from the rest - ability to squeeze out needed points in easy games because that's what is going to set them apart late in the season.

In the end, they lost to a pretty good team, by one goal, after outskating them... but ran into a hot goalie. It happens. Heavens know the Habs did it to better teams in the past. The schedule only compounded the issue.
