I say yes, but is 90 points even enough to make the playoffs anymore?
If we keep it up and if we are better with Saku in the line-up I say definitely yes, Leafs D are aweful (losing 4-1 to Isles in the 2nd), Rangers are no better and Carolina and others like Florida, Pittsburgh, Washington and Buffalo will be on the outside looking in.
Tampa and Atlanta are doing well, Montreal isn't the only surprise this season (although Tampa isn't a big surprise with their talented youth). Imagine Atlanta with Heatly in the line up too????

Now to your poll :
Given that 90 points would give us an easy 6th in the conference, and that the majoity of the responses to your poll predict 90 or better, it seems:
1) a lot of perceptions have changed, probably because of what has happened since the season began.
2) we are a fickle lot.
I think that we have a good chance. Even thow Not alot of people believe that but I do.
We still dont have koivu in the line up. Hes going to help players that go on a slump because I dont think ribeiro can do this all year even if i would like him two.
Hossa still hasent been scoring but his efort is there and the same with bulis so when those come its going to be even better for are team. What I like about this years edition is that we have players that have the talent to step it up a nought when others go on a drought something we dident have last year. Thats in my opinion a recipe for succes. I mean every player goes on a drought at one one point and its up to some else to step it up.
Imo alot of people dont realized how much talent the habs have and if claude can make the team realise that,this team will surprise alot of people. People keep looking at the habs from their prevous edditions and how porley they did but this group of guys are different from last year.
