I heard last night during the Atlanta game, that we were the only team in the Nhl with 6 players on our team with 40 points or more.

Well last night we surpassed that, as we now have 7!!!!

You know what, don't count Ryder out to do that as well. I think had he played close to the full season and not been benched he would have easily broken 40.

He still might hit 40 plus points if he keeps up his recent play.

Just goes to show the balance of this team and the fine job that Carbo and Gainey have done to put it together. Kudos to both of them.

While it still bothers me that we don't have a real 80+ point player on the team, the fact that we're third in the league in goals for more than makes up for it. :)

This is the first year in forever that I am truly buying the "spread the offense" philosophy, as we finally have enough offense to spread around. ;)

The 80+ point player has bothered me as well. Not having an elite goal scorer like some other teams is painful considering we're the Montreal Canadiens with more money than we know what to do with.

However, just think of what we have to look forward to. Any one of these seven 40+ point guys can step up and be an 80+ point guy, or maybe 2 or 3. I'm excited about this team and its youth and what they've accomplished thus far. Maybe in a year or two from now we'll look back and say "Hossa who"

Agreed. Hopefully this will change in the summer with the team's continued success making Montreal a more attractive place for top-tier free agents.

However, just think of what we have to look forward to. Any one of these seven 40+ point guys can step up and be an 80+ point guy, or maybe 2 or 3. I'm excited about this team and its youth and what they've accomplished thus far. Maybe in a year or two from now we'll look back and say "Hossa who"

I would not be surprised in the least if Andrei Kostitsyn broke 80 points next year. I'm not saying he will for sure. Probably he'll come in between 55-60 points. But I truly believe that if the circumstances are right and he stays healthy, 80 is not out of the question.

Kovy will have 84 after the final game trust me!

Great to see offense coming from all lines last night.

Someone already said it. But if Koivu (mostly), Streit (44), Higgins(40), and Kostitsyn (40), all reach 50 points, then that's worht way more than one Hossa. 18 games to see if it can be done.

I would love to have a Goal scoring franchise player (LeCavalier, or Jokinen), but having 7-50 point players in one team is more than just stats, it's what Stanley Cup Teams are made of.

Going to do some surfing. I want to know how many team are pushing 50 point players.

That was Vinny's first slumping season I Remember

but the 98-99 season is wrong we had

Recchi had 47 points in 61 games and

Koivu had 44 points in 65 games

Well I did a quick estimate. Here ya go.

With 18 games remaining I pretty much took any player with 40 points today, and made him reach 50.

Montreal- Possible 7

Anh- 4

Atl-2 (maybe 5 after 18 games)

Bos-3

Buff- 4( maybe 7 after 18 games)

Cal-5

Dal-3

Det-6

NJ-3

NYR- maybe 3

Ott- 5 maybe

Pitts-4

SJ-2

Van-3

The rest of the teams just doesn't matter.

Yup, this speaks to depth, and it is important for winning championships (as opposed to just "winning deals", whatever that is).

The Habs will have 7 players with 50+ points this year (virtually no key-man games lost to injuries helps!). No other team will reach the figure, and that includes Pittsburgh, with or without Hossa.

Interestingly, the Habs loaded up with 10 players at 50+ back in 1992-93 (wow! a record?). Now, isn't that the last time the Habs won the Cup?

No team in the NHL had 7 players with 50+ points last season.

In 2005-06 two teams did:

  • Carolina with 7 players, won the Cup
  • Detroit with 8 players, won the regular season

See a trend here? 'Stars' can help you win a big game; depth (total team) wins championships.

A big part of Ottawa's problem right now is that the big three (Alfie/Heatley/Spezza) are stone cold, and/or are getting checked really well. Each year, they are it for the Sens @ 50+ points (grand total of three players), unless Fisher does not get injured too much. He's certainly a fourth. Getting Stillman made sense for them.

Shut down Ottawa's big line (which the Habs certainly didn't do last time the teams faced each other), and you win the game. Easy, peasy.

Go Habs Go! If Ryder and Grabs light fire, that will be NINE equivalents!; two whole lines, 2 defensemen (PP guys), and scoring seeping onto the third line. Just what the team needs for the play-offs. Add Price at the top of his game, and maybe 10-for-10 in OT, and well, you know ...... , fun to dream!! :D
