This past year we lost Markov, Gorges for almost the whole year and Pacioretty right exactly when he began picking, a month before the playoffs. If this year the Bruins lose Chara, Seidenberg for the whole year and Lucic before the playoffs do you think we will need 7 games to eliminate them?...I don't. Here to a long journey to the ECF with either Washington or Pittsburgh. The Canadian team that will first bring Lord Stanley back in Canada is the Canadiens in a 1-3 year window...

I am never going to let the negative thread get up above the positive thread this season,you have to be positive if you want anything,and I want the HABS to win everything.

GO HABS GO :wacko: :wacko:

camp begins in a week?

Careful now....you don't want to injure yourself going into training camp. We're going to need you in top form. With or without the Captain. :P

Break-out seasons: Cammalleri, AK

Players who CAN'T do worst than last season: GOMEZ, Subban, Eller, Desharnais

Players that never will disappoint: Plekanec, Gionta, Darche

Surprise bag players: Cole, Pacman, Gorges, Markov

Hot goalie: PRICE.

Now that's a team hitting its prime lol. Hopefully, we do get a lot more goals this year.

I'm not sure what you're basing this assessment on. To go over some of the points you made:

- Cammalleri's already known to be a scorer in the NHL. He led the league in playoff goals two seasons ago. And he makes 6M a year. I think it's fair to say he's already broken out, but I agree, he could use a nice rebound from a disappointing regular season last year.

- DD had a pretty good year last year, considering he only played part of the season and didn't get loads of quality ice time. I have reasonable expectations of his progressing this year, but if JM relegates him to 4th line duty and PK work, he may still fall below the PPG pace he had last year.

- Gionta is a hard worker, but he needs to bury more of his chances going forward. He left a good 20 goals on his stick last year on near-open nets.

All that said, I do agree that the majority of our forwards are going to improve on the years they had last year. I think that group will include Pleks, Cammy, Gomez, Gio, DD, Eller, and White. It'll be a little harder for AK (with reduced ice time likely in store) and Darche (who had a break-out year last year) to match expectations, but you never know. Overall, I think we need to feel quite positive about the group of forwards we have assembled, especially given the contracts we were already stuck with.

At the moment there are no downsides for me,we will see after next week,I am sure Markov will be fine it's just a hiccup,Ak will be great as will all the others PK's back will be ok and Price is really going to shine I am not worried about anything,hockey is just around the corner,I will worry about things when they come up,no point in worrying before.

GO HABS GO :lol: :lol:
