Montreal, the most unpredictable?

Is Montreal the most unpredictable team in this league or what?
Big changes that has fan either love it or hate it.
Annalist that is telling the fans its a subpare team for the most part(tsn,score.....mostly english feed in general) and the french media that in general are trying to live with it(the thing with the french media is that in general, they are a fan of the habs on top of that)

Now me has a fan, I'm confused! Gomez, Cammy, Gionta, Mara, Gill, Spacek, Moeen are in. Can Gomez produce again with Gionta?I think so. Will Cammy hit the 50 goals? well , lets see.
Is this team a playoff team or not?
I say let's just make the playoff and anything can happen but.....
Do you guys see them in the top 5 in the east?
In the end, IMHO, it's a hard call.

Injuries

For me, its the unpredictable nature of injuries and their huge effect...

What if Markov and/or Gomez go down for months?

Can anyone step in to replace them?

Baring injuries... last year's Habs were a tough team to beat with its full lineup.

This is very true, as seen the year before last, where we had no significant injuries and finished first.....so, if we can avoid key injuries, for prolonged periods, to guys like Markov, we should be fine as far as making the playoffs...

All depends on goaltending imho.

I think there is no doubt the Habs have improved. Trouble is many teams in our division and conference have also. I really don't like seeing Pronger in the East. I also think the Senators will be a much much tougher opponent without the distraction of Dany Heatclown. The Leafs I have doubts about but their D is certainly more mobile and they have more speed up front. And the Bruins, despite having lost Kessell are still the Bruins with Zdeno and his retarded point shot. Not to mention going into Tampa won't mean an automatic 2 points anymore. (not that it did for the Habs last year but you get the idea).

It's going to be a very tight Eastern conference this year. Now having said that, not making the playoffs would be a major disaster for this team. Too much experience and too much potential, on paper.
