Something Interesting that Works In Our Favour

This team has been the picture of steady. No losing streak longer than 3 games. No winning streak longer than 5 games. However, we rarely lose 2 in a row and always win more than we lose.

If this trend continues, can we lose in a 7 game series. The NHL playoffs are designed for steady teams that win more than they lose.

Discuss...

It's funny how we can discuss about nothing before playoffs because of this "karma" ****.

Well if the opposing team wins the first game and the two teams just trade wins for the whole series then Habs would lose in 7 without losing 2 games in a row. So yes they can lose.

Of course we can lose a seven game series. Anyone can lose a seven game series.

It's not like we're the only team that's been consistent throughout the season either...

And it's not like being consistent throughout the season equates to automatic playoff success...

I think on paper the Habs have a possible shot to go through three rounds and make it to the Finals, where they most likely would be the underdog. Rangers, Senators and Penguins would be tough opponents for sure, but Montreal would have a shot to beat them IF they play the inspired, emotional, disciplined and intelligent hockey we've seen them play on a few occasions this year.

However, I don't think the Habs are beyond tripping over themselves and come out empty for a game or two, even in playoffs. They've given a few surprise bad performances this year, although never too many in a row, indeed, but if it happens at a bad time in a serie, it could cost them an early elimination.

This all depends on who were facing in the playoffs, but stop talking about the playoffs already. The season isn't over yet.

Being consistant sure helps, but it's a hole new thing in the playoffs. The habs never lost more then 3 in a row, always being able to bounce back. But if we lose our first 3 games of the series, we have to win 4 in a row. It's not like in the season when we bounced back and lost again and it didn't matter. In the playoffs we lose we're out, so there is a new factor that we didn't experience alot this season: a must win game. Yes we had alot of important games but not games like washington or edmonton are playing right now. Having a young team this might hurt if we are down in a serie.

God damn someone had to say it.

I'm sick of this "don't discuss it cause of kharma" ********.

Look, we aren't higgins, guillame and Mikhail going around walking up to Sundin, Alfredson and Neil and saying "HA HA HA HA HAAAA HAAA were going to wiiiiiin the cuuuuuuuuup". We aren't the team, in no way should our love of the team or internet discussions of a team negatively effect OTHER PEOPLE LIKE THE HOCKEY PLAYERS ON OUR TEAM WHO WANT TO WIN A CUP.

It's like if someone else went around gloating about a new job you just got and then you got fired, it isn't karma, because you never knew nor told the person you were going around gloating about it, heck you don't even know the person.

This isn't how karma works, karma though a supersticion in my opinion, doesn't work that way. It just doesn't make sense lol.

So please, enough of this karma ********.

Habs will win the cup
Habs will win the cup
Habs will win the cup
Habs will win the cup
Habs will win the cup
Habs will win the cup
Habs will win the cup
Habs will win the cup
Habs will win the cup
Habs will win the cup
Habs will win the cup


suck on that crybabies

Well it definitely is better to root for a team that is consistent then for Ottawa that has been known to go into major slumps...

Montreal is a little green in the play-offs. I'm glad Price has had success at the international level and that he had a hell of a play-off series last year in Hamilton. That is a taste of play-off pressure and he handled it very well...

With the reborn Kovalev, Play-off Saku with two eyes, Markov the great, Streit the Swiss captain, the Kostitsyn bothers and Grabovsky who have all played in international tournaments, that surely makes up for lack of play-off experience.

I think they will do fine...
