 Still got my Centre Ice or NHL.tv or whatever it's called these days subscription but I'm sure I won't watch many games this season. I live overseas and really don't feel like staying up until 2:00AM to watch this team. Maybe on the weekends or if there's an afternoon game but certainly not regularly, which never was a problem for me in the past.

I watched every single game for years up until last year.  this is the worst edition of the habs of my entire life, its an absolute disgrace. i barely watched anything last year. this year I will be starting a blog so I am going to watch every game just so I can have an informed opinion, but its going to be bad. this roster is brutal. anyway I hope some of our kids will have good years. ...happy captain invisible is gone.....  theres a couple of positives.

I won't go out of my way to watch this team. Truly doubt i'll sit through any of those West late night games. Couldn't handle it last year and can't see it being different this season. As for the games in my time zone,,, i'll likely watch until they fall behind by a couple goals,,, which could be less then a period. Going to play it by ear.

Will watch when I'm home and there's nothing else to do, but definitely not planning my life around Habs games. As I've said, since the PK trade, I don't feel that much of a connection to the remaining players: there's no Saku, there's no PK, there's no Kovalev, there's not even Galchenyuk anymore. There seem to be a lot of by-the-book guys who lack personality, and they're not that much fun to watch. I can't think of a single game-breaker left on the team who gets you out of your seat regularly.

To boot, I still don't believe we can win in the next 2-3 years and I don't believe we can win with Bergevin bungling everything up, so like last year, I'll be hoping for an all-out tank and a high draft pick. Good in the long run, but not much fun to watch games when you're cheering for your team to lose somewhat. My prediction is that we'll end up somewhere in the 80-88 point range and miss the playoffs yet again.

I'll probably watch a few weekday games a month when there's not much else to do on a Tuesday night, but I haven't gone out of my way to deliberately watch the Habs since the 2017 playoffs really and don't see that changing. I'll definitely be following the Habs more closely though, there's some really intriguing prospects in the system now and I'm excited to see how Suzuki does (I expect he gets a 9 game tryout), but the pro roster doesn't have much intrigue for me at this point.

Missed one last year but willcontinue to watch like I have for over 50 years. We're still the last Canadian team to win the Cup and are probably more likely to get a shot a the Leafs will always be the Leafs and the Oil are still figuring it out.  Like the game, like out youth. It will be nice to see Weber and Carey play a few games. Not sweating the W and L as much as the growth.  I think LV will struggle too.

Ya know, at 50 years of watching/hoping, the Habs do well, IMO, it's ingrained in our blood, even tho we've suffered thru many years of dry spell, we still keep watching and hoping.

I'll continue with the Center Ice package and watch as many games as I can. I've been a fan since the 60's never been a band wagon fan and don't believe in it. I'll never wish for my team to tank either. There's no guarantee (even less now) of getting that "draft" choice that's going to change everything. (How many #1's did Edmonton get before they won last years cup? ......opps that's right they didn't make the playoffs either!) I'm hoping for the best and will see what happens, but I'll still be watching. For those who don't want to watch that's your choice also remember no one is forcing anyone to attend or watch. If it's that bad don't watch and we won't have to see all the negative post easy enough. It's Hockey it's a game yes they're "our" team but it isn't the end of the world. You're still watching Hockey and watching Hockey good or bad is still better than most things to do!

Some sort of strange illness I guess, but just when you think you've seen it all.....  Looking  forward to seeing Weber and Price play. If you were an Expos fan too this hockey losing is nothing. :6351:

I'll probably watch all the games, like the most of you I'll be hoping we get something done or at lest that we may hope to see some growth this season.

I lost hope for competing for the cup after we said goodbye to Rads, because I really believed that the team could learn a lot from him, he could show how it was done, and I loved his tooth-less smile :)

I'm in rebuild mode, even if MB isn't, .. you can't win a cup with just Price and Weber, so if they make the play-offs, fine, .. but I wish they would get serious and that management would stop playing possum or wannabe.

I hope the best for the new guys, maybe it'll be better than I think, but for now, #25 still seems a long way away.

Personally I will watch every game I can on T.V. with that said I usually go to 5 - 10 games a season I will certainly be not paying to see any thing year

When I lived in Montreal (2006-2016) I would go 4-5 times each year. However, after the Subban trade went down I simply stopped going. Seeing how much worse the team is getting since then... I'm glad I stopped giving them my money.

Let me put it this way. If my wife wants to, let's say, go to a movie on a game night, I'll be going to the movie. In previous years she knew it was a waste of time asking. The Habs came first.

When i read that,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, two words came to mind, but I can't repeat it here. :P

Tuned in of course. My moniker is Habs_Hockey_Nutz for a reason. Good or bad, win or lose I'm still interested. New season, some new coaches, some new roster players... change is always interesting and results are unknown...  enough reason to watch every game I can. And that is most, if not all.

How many will they win? They'll win some and lose some... hopefully it is better than before. I can still say Go Habs Go!!!
