Like it or not, Saku looks quite tired most of the time and Higgins struggle to find his game.. Ive been encouraged lately seeing Koivu play 2-3 strong games but it didnt last long.. Is he saving his energy for the playoffs? Does he wanna avoid injuries?

What happen if one of our big 3 gets seriously injured? We played 3 games without Hamrlik and the team looked quite lost...

I think most of us are being rational but we all believe in our team.. If Koivu wakes up in playoffs and that we avoid injury to the key players everything is possible.. I just wish to see my team play good hockey against the top teams, I would be more reassured..
I think the Habs biggest concern as they head toward the playoffs is still 5 on 5 scoring. They are improving, but even over their last 3 wins, more than 50% of their goals come on the power-play. A lot of playoff goals are scored in front of the net, and that is something Montreal still does not do well.

and i really think (kevin Lowe) gonna die down on the whole chasing RFA things, i think he knows ALLL the GM's are PISSED and wont wheel and deal with him anymore, proof is at the deadline
He won't but not for those reasons. His little foray into RFA land was a bit of a disaster this year and, having given Brian Burke a top 10 pick the year after giving him a Cup, I doubt he'd want the P.R. nightmare and salary inflation of going down that path again. Nothing to do with being blackballed.

Honestly i was kinda in shock and mad at gainey after the trade deadline, i really thought we were finally getting our star player but hey 1-2 days later i already forgot about Hossa. I don't think we have what it takes to bring the cup back but i like our chance, its definatly our best shot at it since 1993.

Really? I disagree, I'd rather hit the playoffs with the team that got us here.
A rental is a good bonus to fill a void maybe, but we have great scoring,
Higgins was too much, I still think he will score 40 either next year or the year after.
