Oh dear. This February coming up is the determinant factor in if the Habs will contend for a 4-6 spot or a 7-8 spot. If they pooch like previous years, which based on how they're playing lately is not impossible, it won't be the former. I think contending with Boston is out the window. What I hate, besides the obvious criticisms we all know and love, is that our road game has gone severely down hill. We're approaching .500 for the road and that's one area where we've declined from last year.
If we can't beat the "easy" teams it doesn't mean we can't beat good teams, but it means our focus over a 7-game series and mental, as well as physical, fortitude is just not good enough at all. We're a flawed tesm, whether or not we finish 4th or 5th. But damn, I hope Gainey can see what we're missing right now. It's becoming plain to see for us fans I suppose. Oh wait, 2-1. They telepathically listened to my worries.
