still can't figure out how the Habs beat Boston and lost to the Rangers who is a weaker team. Guess they went all out against Boston and couldn't do it twice, not the sign of a Stanley cup team when you consider LA won three 7-game series and about to win the Stanley cup.

Nice line up but not tough enough to win a cup, and the top 8 are all streaky scores, The defense looks good and if there's big money involved, let Markov slide out the door. Don't hold the team Hostage for one player we seen that movie with Gomez.

I blame Therrien for his line shuffeling other than that it comes down to Good Steady Players and Good coaching, one without the other won't work. Therrien has made mistakes but when you look at our line up of forwards other than the two Gallys, Pacioretty and Plekanec we don't have much. our Defence PK is the only one that comes to give 100% every game, the rest is so, so Goaltending, not a problem.

LA will win the cup, just the matter of how many games it will take!

you're right on Ian. Therrien did it all year, Players never knew from one game or even one period who they would end up playing along side. we were in the playoffs still try to figure out lines.

Making the playoffs is not a big deal. it's what you do after you get in. The Habs did good this time around but they proved the team is not good enough to go all the way so do we stay this way or try to improve the team. 95 points will get us in the playoffs and the team we have right now without changing anything can do that so it's MB's call to improve this team which ever way he chooses to try and win a cup. we already have a playoff team.

Why hang on to these guys and pay them 5 to 7 million when we are not good enough to win a cup spend the money on PK and continue the Rebuild trade these guys get something for them while they are still worth something. keeping these guys for a couple of rounds in the playoffs is gonna take for ever to win a cup and we are giving away valuable money. Myself I would try to talk Markov into stepping down and becoming our Defense coach he'd be a good one for our up and coming young guys doubt that he would do that but it's worth a try.

Steve, My point is about improving the team and instead of holding a young kid back bring him in. The best we are going to be in the next few years is a playoff team management pretty much said that, making it to the playoffs is their thing and anything can happen after that.. How long do you think it's gonna take us to build a team as good as the top 4-teams in the west and that's the teams we have to beat to win a Stanley cup. unless you see something I don't see we need to make a lot of changes up front for consistent scoring purposes and to improve our Defense than we may have a chance. Either go with youth or bring in NHL ready players that can do that. what we have right now is OK, but they had just proven OK don't win Stanley Cups, you may do well but that's it..

UK - If you don't bring home the big prize, the 3rd round means nothing, your still a loser, bottom line you haven't won anything. It's about winning. So if we get to the 3rd round for the next 10-years we're a good team than. Maybe you should talk to some of the players and I'm sure they'll tell you when you make the playoffs it's about winning the cup, not making it to the 3rd round. what ever team loses this series, ask them how they feel and I'll bet you they won't say they're happy they made it to the 4th round. The loser will be very disappointed because they played 82-games, 4-rounds of the playoffs all for nothing except making the playoffs.
