It seems like Hamilton has a very balanced offense. Not sure how to interpret that for the Habs long-term.

A 5-4 loss. It looks like Denis is still having trouble finding his game.

Or more realistic, he was playing over his head to begin the year and like suspected hes nothing more than a mediocre goaltender.

It seems like Hamilton has a very balanced offense. Not sure how to interpret that for the Habs long-term.

Depends where the balance is coming from, if the 35 year old nobodies are part of that it has no significance on us, however if its the kids, it probably shows depth in the farm.

The team of the future is built like the one of today, no superstar scorers, but a lot of balance.

Good in theory but in practice I'm not so sure.

San Jose

Boston

Detroit

Washington

Rangers

Philadelphia

Chicago

Calgary

Montreal

New Jersey

Pittsburgh

Are the top 11 teams in the NHL for season record. 9 of those 11 teams have an offensive star /overperformer or two as the linchpin of their offense (Thornton, Marleau, Savard, Datsyuk, Hossa, Zetterberg, Ovechkin, Semin, Backstrom, Carter, Gagner, Kane, Iginla, Parise, Crosby, Malkin). Only the Rangers and the Habs lack such presence.

*********

That being said, players who stand out as offensive stars don't typically spend much time in the AHL.

It's a great theory but it's lacking in empirical support.

I believe NJ of 03 did it, however I would agree it would help MORE to have a superstar, as they obviously provide more offense, but you CAN have decent odds in the postseason without said superstar.

That empirical support is what I strive for DA, freaaking NHL......

Nevertheless in the NHL standings, we're 8th in the league points-wise so we must be doing something right, again also Markov can be considered an offensive superstar.
