Your favorite thing about the habs this year (positive talk only)

as the title says, i just want to know what everyone's favorite part of the 09-10 habs is. Every thread i have read lately is negative and i thought it would be great to find out what some real habs supporters thought, personally, i have quite a few things, but ill go with goaltending, its great to have a 1-2 punch that you can count on, on most nights

Effort and determination. Quite frankly, I don't care whether they win or lose. Everybody has to lose sometimes. But what is truly refreshing this year is the team works hard every shift and they don't give up. Remember last year when things didn't look too good after a period or two? The team just gave up after. This year, even if I turn the game on and the Habs are down 2 or 3 zip, I still continue to watch it because I know they will come back.

I don't like the way the Habs play under Martin (team takes too many shots) but I certainly appreciate that he at least has created a lot of discipline and is able to get the players to play hard.

Effort.

I've always said I'm a lot happier watching a team, even when less talented, if they play with heart in comparison to a "skilled" team who squeaks into the playoffs and gets dominated once there.

If a team who plays with heart and grit makes it into the playoffs, you just never know what can happen.

Markov confirming all the hype he finally got last year
Gomez/Gionta regaining their chemistry of old
The ATM line when in it's full glory is dominant
PK Subban doing very well in the A
Benoit Pouliot, looking like he can fulfill that 4th overall potential here in MTL

Not in any particular order

1. Cammy down-on-one-knee one-timers.

2. Pouliot over Lats.

3. Halak and Price (who needs more goal support)

4. Pleks as a scoring leader

5. The team's obvious potential with a full line-up (for like what... two games?)

6. Markov

Hmmm... kind of sad that I can't think of more... too many inconsistencies with this team

I am with Natey.

Effort is there. A much better committment to the defensive side of the puck , a coach who is more patient with lines and allocates icetime based on merit (see line selections and Halak/Price time splitting).

Cammalleri
Hamrlik
Plekanec

( in that order as the situation stands today, I like guys who perform after they get their comfort money as opposed to during the year that they're chasing it - not a shot specifically at Plekanec for those with flame throwers in hand)

Price is showing his biggest improvement, that he's indeed getting the NHL and razor edge differences between winning and losing, and has been sharpened IMHO by the challenge that Halak has made himself to represent (thumbs down to those who wanted a "veteran backup" to guide his soul, nothing sharpens the mind like sitting beside a guy gunning for your job).

Well said.

Gomez is coming around as well, not that he can live up the salary but if he can play like this i'll be very satisfied with having him on the team.

Awards:
1. Plekanec having a great season.
2. Cammy's one timer shots on one knee.
3. Markov living up to expectations, and exceeding them.
4. Gill giving everyone the finger with his sick PK ability.
5. Second line scoring now exists on this team.
6. Getting the guy that was picked before Price, for someone we picked in the second round.
7. Gorges showing all he is very decent on the blueline.
8. Effort being shown from the entire team.
9. Centennial Ceremony, especially seeing Roy in full gear.

Consistent effort throughout thus far.

Gomez's play in recent weeks.

The Cammi-Plek-AK line and it's success.

The penalty killing.

Our goaltending.

Centennial Ceremony.

Glimpses of what MaxPac and Pouliot are going to contribute to this team in the future.
Key players (Markov, Plekanec, Cammy, Hammer, etc) actually making key contributions (when healthy and in the lineup, that is) more often than not.
Halak's emergence as an excellent and reliable starter from the shadows of backupdom in just his second full season with the Habs, but also goaltending in general.

Effort by our top 6 players is fun and certainly a change from last year Kovalev and Tanguay...

The Goalies.

Effort.

If we can somehow manage to stay healthy it seems like we might have 2 offensive lines that can be a threat every shift...something which we have not had for a long time.

It is very boring but it seems like the system is somewhat coming together.

Pouliot.

Gill on the PK.

MAB on the PP.

Cammalleri reminding me of Mats Naslund. And the masses finally realizing just how valuable Markov is.

This team actually tries in games. Rather than floating.
