    Are you sure those 'leaves' your looking at are tea leaves, and not the 'special' kind of GREEN leaves instead?

    Lol, just kidding.....
    One of my annoying 'HABits' is my penchant for bad jokes!
    Sorry everyone, please carry on intelligently...

    Serious question:

    Do you consider this season a success regardless of the outcome of this series?

    1. Beat the leafs in what will become an all time classic comeback
    2. Swept the Jets to come out of the North.
    3. Great showings from the youth (Caufield, Suzuki, KK)
    4. Price showing he's best in the league come playoff time.

    Frankly, #1 alone is enough for me. I'm excited and optimistic (voted habs in 7) but will be content with how the season ends if we don't get to the final.

    I trust entrails more than tea leaves.

    Translation: Go Habs. Eric has been through a lot this year, he's an absolute pro.

    Knights in 5. In the short history of the club(this is their 4th season), they played 1st year in stanley cup finals, 2nd year in first round and 3rd year in conference finals. I think the experience from playoffs will decide.

    nope because Price and Weber are giving all they have one last time (my guess)
    and secondly, Islander are the top 4 meaning that PO hockey is not season hockey. We have a type of (boring by opponents) team that could make it work. But we will underdog till the end.

    This season has exceeded expectations and I'm so jacked for the development of our youth and playoff experience! Ill be happy regardless. But not a success until we win it all.

    That is true. They've been successful in their short history and most of the team is comprised of the same guys.

    Habs made an effort to go get guys who have been here before and some of them have won the whole thing. The difference is they've all done it at separate times and with separate teams (aside from Edmundson and Allen). But hopefully that will be enough to help them carry them deep into the series.

    As much as I appreciate the 3-1 comeback against Toronto and the dominant sweep of Winnipeg I give the Habs no chance of winning this series. Vegas is several levels above Toronto and Winnipeg. Vegas in 6

    I like how the Habs seem determined and confident without being cocky about it.

    Habs have added some significant playoff experience this past off season. There is no edge in that area.

    I would be curious to see total games played in the playoffs from both sides? Anybody know where you can get this info quickly without manually calculating

    :laugh: Inspired might be a bad choice of words but he still brings good offense to the table. Perimeter player though so I'm mot excessively worried

    I don't get why people keep saying this...is winning the Cup no longer a goal after Price and Weber are gone?

    They haven't played against in 18 months, hard to predict anything (Jan 19, 2020, Habs won 5-4)

    Whether that storm of full capacity in Vegas for the first 10 minutes and that'll be a victory right off the bat.. then just continue to do what you've been doing, habs.

    gotta get one of the first two in Vegas... then hope CP can go nuclear as the series wears on to make up for our D that is going to get absolutely abused and ground down as the series wears on. Gotta bet that DeBoer is going to start the series going heavy and with marching orders for Reaves, Roy, Tuch, Kobesar to take a pound of flesh from our d every shift...

    offensively, gonna need the JKO and Staal lines to be able to contribute because if the the Knights figured out how to neutralize Mackinnon's line outside of the PP, Suzuki & co. are in for a tough series... and Fleury is in a groove putting him right up there with Price's best...

    this is very much a david/goliath battle... if the habs pull this one of, will be one of the more impressive series upsets i've seen in my lifetime!

    The season was a success in my books the day we pushed the Leafs to game 7. I expected us to be a bubble team at the stary of the year, and be quickly dealt with come playoff times

    I'm pleasantly surprised by what our young players have shown

    They got no one to post with. There are not enough of them to have more than one on the board at the same time.
