Kriss E, you're better than that. So Boston wins, we finished 4th so NOW we will have a reason to be embarass? Big deal, we finish 2nd in a 48 game season. I keep reading that if it would have been a REAL season, the Maple Leafs would not have been in the playoffs, so who cares really about a 2nd play of a half season. What counts the most are the playoffs. Talk to San Jose fans how great it was to always be dominant and fall on their face on almost every playoffs. We even haven't had the chance to be so dominant in the regular season and then look stupid playing hockey and in the toughness department. 'Cause not THAT long ago, the Habs were NOT intimidated and were on the right hand of beatings. Not too long ago.
Well no, I never said things are perfect and there's nothing to address. We finished 28th last year, so ya, I'm gonna give some major props to this team for finishing 2nd.
It's not because we lose a bad game in the POs that I'm suddenly gonna lose my cool and seriously sound like a baby saying the whole team sucks.
I can see the Habs using one or two of their 2013 second or third round draft picks on fourth liners. They'll be tall and muscular, skate well, and enjoy contact, especially against first liners and first unit Dmen. They won't deliberately injure but they're bound to send a few of their targets to the sidelines. They'll also stand their ground against so-called enforcers.
