    Default Predictions for the 2016-2017 Habs.

    ESPN has the Habs as the 7th best team next year with a healthy Price in net.

    http://m.espn.go.com/nhl/rankings?pollId=1000&week=-1

    I think the Habs do better than that with a healthy Price, 2nd in the division and top 5 league wide with healthy Yoda Price.

    If price only plays 41 games Habs are 4th in division and in a wildcard spot.

    If price plays 15 or less we are bottom 5 in the league second worst in division. Montoya won't save us

    Default Predictions for the 2016-2017 Habs.

    Further to the above from Chris Boucher of sportlogiq:

    - Only 10 teams gave up fewer inner-slot shots against at even strength (ES) than the Habs (good thing), but no team had a lower inner-slot save %

    - only 8 NHL goalies had a lower inner-slot save % than Condon last season & only 2-goalies had an I-S save % higher than Price

    I'll save my prediction till start of the season, I'm expecting MB will acquire another top-6 forward and upgrade top-4 Dman.

    Shipachev would qualify as "some chance" IMO...

    I'm not expecting it but that's what we need. However I expect him to let the kids compete for those spots.

    I see Max having a big year (he better, they traded Subban mostly because of him).

    Habs make the ECF....and who knows where they go from there.

    All this assuming Price has a big year also....and Radulov clicks with the team.

    A lot of ''if'', but that's the same with any team. The top players gotta stay healthy and produce...same with Tampa, Chicago, etc

    Wow....if that's what ends up happening, then trade Price-Max next summer for a king's ransom and rebuild please.....there's no point in continuing until we lose Price-Max to UFA

    If Price stays healthy the Habs are finishing second in the East. You heard it here first.

    First or second in the East. We are much better than last year imo. No Condon makes a big difference

    A playoff team if Price is healthy but out early again as we are very weak at center after 27.

    They don't get past the second round unless or until they replace Pleks and DD.

    The habs have improved too.

    As much as we hate MB because of the Subban trade, his other moves this off-season were good.

    Pleks is probably the second line center on most teams, no?

    I'm not sure with Max as the captain the team will ever have good "chemistry."
