  1. Montreal is not going to make the playoffs even if they have Carey Price, whether he is injured or not. They had an awful offseason because Bergevin was incompetent. The defense is terrible now, so Price has to carry this team, and that's gonna be hard.

  2. Montreal will probably finish 5th in their division and will be fighting for 6th in the division with Ottawa. Buffalo will probably also be in a dog fight with Montreal for the 4th spot which they will probably win. Montreal has taken a couple of steps back in the offseason especially on the blue line and I don't believe that some of the younger players in their prospect pool can fill in those roster hole for the short term.

  3. – They traded away Subban for a washed up old Shea Weber who has a horrible contract until he's 40.
    – Lost Markov who should have been easy to sign considering he only wanted to play for Montreal.
    – Lost Radulov to free agency because Bergevin is incompetent and can't negotiate.
    – Gave Price the worst contract in the NHL, 8x$10 million until he is 38.

    They won't make the playoffs.
