Larry-Launstein-Jr Posted June 5, 2009 Report Share Posted June 5, 2009 Yes, I know it is premature to say what the state of the Habs will be in 2009-10, but there have already been some changes made here, with a new head coach. And there may be some more sweeping changes coming, especially if there is new ownership coming in. I think, at least for the time being, they are in a state of transition. But it is not all bad for these guys, either. I have maintained that the real Habs are somewhere between the team that won the Eastern Conference two seasons ago, and the one that finished a dismal eighth last season. I still think that talent-wise, this is a 4th-6th place team. And there is that wild card of whether Jacques Martin can make a big difference in how they play. Can we get anybody in the UFA market to sign here? Can we trade our way into a higher draft position so we can get a marquee player early on in the draft? Can we start doing a better job of drafting in the lower rounds, like Detroit has done so well for so long? These are all questions waiting to be answered, and those answers will go a long way to determining how far this team goes going forward, not just in the 2009-10 season, but beyond as well.
