Habs Watch - Looking ahead
With the new NHL season right around the corner, I will begin my game-by-game sidebar stat ticker again for the mighty Habs, and start posting again on events and deals regarding the team.
So far this year, we have seen some players go, the likes of Jan Bulis, Nicklas Sundstrom and Richard Zednik, but we have also seen a few new faces join the club in the off season, namely Sergei Samsonov and Mike Johnson. The key this year, will be goal scoring for sure. The basic core of the Habs Defense looks as solid as last year, though they are definately hoping guys like Komisarek and Streit continue to improve. Goaltending is as stellar as always in Montreal, with Huet back, likely as the starter.
Koivu is back after his season ending eye injury and we can look forward to one of my all-time favorites in Kirk Muller helping out behind the bench with Carbonneau.
