    This trip should be a lot of fun, a lot of Habs fans show up every game. Would be cool if you guys posted some pictures.

    So how many points will the Habs win on this west coast trip?

    This trip is a nightmare every year. Glad it's not during the holidays anymore.

    I'd say a 3 - 1 record isn't out of reach.

    I would not mind a split, at the very least.

    I'm thinking we get 2 VS Calgary, and at least 1 VS the three other teams.

    No matter how they get them, 5 points out of 8 sounds about right to me.

    I say we have a good chance of going 3-1 or 2-1-1. But 2-2 for a west coast trip would be pretty "good" too.

    Each time we play the flames, we somehow look out of place. I don't know what it is...

    I know it's not how it will work out because nothing ever really does work out how it should in theory for us, but given the teams we're playing, I think there's a realistic chance we come out 4-0.

    I still opted for 5-6 points in the poll, but I think 8 is definitely possible.

    Hopefully the habs don't look past the flames. While they are not the most talented, they are playing with a lot of tenacity and hard work, and they are getting results so far.

    As a vancouverite, its always a special time for me when the habs make their western swing. You get reminded that this team is more than just a team from Quebec. Its got a definite national appeal even to this day.

    Voted 3-4 but I mean 4.

    A 50% PPG on a west coast trip would be alright.

    Calgary will be a tough one, first game in the West and the'y are similar to us with more gritty players : either 1 point or 0

    Edmonton is not that solid behind, our 3 lines will out score theirs : 2 points

    Vancouver, I have the feeling Luongo will be on fire and IMO their offense is way better than ours : 0 point

    Winnipeg, Eller festival 2.0 ? :laugh: Montreal always seems to play well in Winnipeg : 2 points

    I believe we could end up with a western record slightly over .500

    Actually stoked for it this year, was in Alberta for a few months and am heading back end of Oct but I get to see Calgary/Edmonton games back to back which will be a blast, especially if we win :)

    Should be easy against the Flames, they have no guns and no depth. The rest should be a good challenge.

    Calgary has no real D to speak of but are hard working. Barring a superhuman goaltending performance by Ramo, we should be good for 4-5 goals. If we play loosey goosey, they'll light us up too.

    5-6 points.

    We'll have a good chance to beat Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg. Vancouver will be our toughest game.

    I voted for 5-6 points because I can see us going 3-1 or 2-1-1. The flames game worries me though the most out of all the games since it seems like we never do well in games that seem like a sure thing on top of the fact the flames have been doing quite well to start off the year

    I'm going to be slightly optimistic and say 5 points. We usually manage to screw at least one of these up. And then there's Vancouver, who could beat us even without us screwing up.

    So I'm leaning to 2-1-1, with us losing to Vancouver in O.T., and us failing to show up against one of the other three.
