ummm,,,, should it not be.....The Habs cannot plays as good as Tampa Bay. Plain and simple, we are an average team at best so far in this young season. I don;t see any improvements except for Gallagher and Galchenyuk to name a few, Plekanec is supposed to score, Markov playing way too much ice time, and Gionta a playmaker if that. I say start trade talks for Plekanec, Markov and Gionta. We are 3 years from being a Cup contender so why linger on to these guys when you can get some prospects or draft picks in return? Too much optimism over the years for the Canadiens leads to bitter disappointment and agony for us fans! "We will win the Cup one day only with ? in the nets "

Yup, Boone is right. This team is average if that. Another 2 or 3 years until the team becomes a contender under Bergevin (We heard this before with Gainey at the helm). Anybody that thinks this team is going to go far in the playoffs this year is taking crack cocaine as the Mayor Rob Ford is doing in that crappy town in Toronto. Glad to be back in Canada after 2 months in Punta Cana! Hey what about those Islanders and Maple LAffs, eh? Give me a bunch of North American, no good , no skill. but hard gritty players like Toronto and they will play 60 minutes of hockey, not like the small skillfull team like the Habs! BIG IS ALWAYS BETTER I say! No surprise that the Habs are going to fight it out for that last 8th position come in April. Sure the kids will improve but its time to move Plekanec, Gionta, Markov too name a few while their stock is still good. You can never have enough of young prospects and draft picks to build a winner! "We will win the Cup one day only with ? in the nets "

Go to other sites such as the Avalanche, Senators , Flyers, etc. to name a few,.... freebies for anyone to have access to these media notes and guides.And go on any NBA, NFL, or CFL site and they want you to download their guides. The Canadiens are too cautious as they have been when making trades at the deadline, don't do anything! Everything is about making money for the team, nothing is free. The days when I used to write to the late Claude Mouton and get tons of stuff for free. Now you write to the club, they don't evenr cater to your requests anymore nor reply back. So sad.

Last year we were available to download Game Day press notes from the site and this year we are blocked from doing this, only for the media they say! Nothing is free for this club to five out to the fans and don't tell me it's copyright issues cause other sites allow fans to download these informative press notes and they even let you download their media guides! Low down dirty shame for the club to do this! "We will win the Cup one day only with ? in the nets "

My prediction is we will fight for the last 2 positions in the Eastern Conference. The teamis a work in progress and it will be as the season progresses. Year 2 of 5 for Bergevin. (I've heard this before when Bobby was GM) Boston is the team to beat in the East again. The key is Price. He's going to have to step it up this year and prove me wrong and other skeptics out there. Yeah, we got physical by signing Parros and we got smaller by signing Briere. So where is the improvement? Better load up on Tumms or Peptmo Bismol again this year. Our stomachs will be turning again with some good games and bad games as well. The team has to be consistent game in and out but I see us as a fragile team when the season progresses. But as I have always said for years......BIG IS BETTER!!!! I'll stick to it. Enjoy the season fans, we still have a way to go before we are a contender for the Holy Grail, Lord Stanley's Cup. Gorges for Captain I say, and GIonta demoted to an "A: since this is last year! "We will win the Cup one day only with ? in the nets "

Everybody is entitled to their opinions on the team whether they are positive or negative on this site. If we all agreed on this team, then we would be in the Kingdom of Heaven, but this is reality, we live in a world of lies, corruption, overpaid athletes, etc...... Looking forward to the season and hope this team is good on paper and last season was no fluke. Year 2 of 5 for Bergevin. "We will win the Cup one day only with ? in the nets "

We need a new captain on this team. Gionta doesn't cut it for me. "We will win the Cup one day only with ? in the nets "
