Habs fans (and the Habs themselves, apparently) are hilarious in the absurd pressure they put on themselves. The Canadiens have a perfectly good playoff-worthy team, yet everyone in Montreal seems to have worked themselves up in a lather that they MUST win the Cup THIS YEAR just because it's the centennial. It's like Cubs fans believing that 2008 was the year the Cubs would finally win the Series since it was a round 100 years since the last title.
At what point does Habs management start pointing the finger at Gainey?
Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.
You need to remember that In October a lot of bad teams look good and good teams look bad. The good players don't usually play a lot during the preseason so it takes a couple of weeks for them to get their games legs under them.
