Habs strengths/weaknesses

The teams rankings are based on their players rankings... which are calculated using most available stats not just points.

http://www.sportsline.com/nhl/player...larseason/TEAM

TEAM RATING GOAL DEF LW C RW STAND

07. MTL, 95.93 6th 10th 22nd 15th 18th 16th

24. NYI, 51.22 24th 9th 6th 18th 27th 14th

26. BUF, 47.02 25th 21st 11th 8th 10th 18th

-------------------------------------------

It becomes very clear our major advantage is in goal (6th for us compared to 24 & 25).

On D we're on equal footing with NYI but ahead of BUF although it doesn't take it account that we're without Souray for now.

On offense our weakest position seems to be LW... where we're 22nd compared to 6th & 11th.
We're average at C with 15th, and then again below average at RW with 18th.

I think the numbers clearly indicate our focus should be to acquire help on the wings... left or right doesn't matter since we have a few guys (Zednik, Ryder) who can play both.

--------------------------------------------

These numbers aren't the holy grail, but they still give a good indication of where we need help most IMO.

We don't need to trade for a winger. I think we can wait a year and wait for the young player. A couple of them(Kast, Perez, Higgins, Balej...) should help us a lot at the wing replacing a guy like Bulis who play a better game when in a checking role

Not many teams are talented in the centre like us on the first two lines, and 4th.
Koivu, Ribs, Bégin.
Juneau sucks!
