Final     Missed Playoffs
75 22 261 (H22 - 534, L24 - -221) One of only two teams in facing Potential Penalties.  Is out if Carolina does not come back and that now appears unlikely to happen.  Could also make it and miss his two Anaheim or Calgary players depending on how the West shakes out.  Gave it his all, but likely waited to late to make his charge.
70 22 379 (H22 - 534, L24 - -221) It is possible GM Marcel only has Subban in the NHLP playoffs.  Marcel did not give up but there were some questionable moves.  He had opportunities to grab 'surer' playoff players, uncontested at that.  Now he is in a deep hole and unless teams out come back in, what can he truly do here?
65 22 534 (L24 - -221) Wow.  Let me tell you what, wow!  A season high CTR of 534 doesn't say a lot, but the fact this team is in a playoff spot in the North does.  GM Marcel never packed it in.  I am not sure we would call this team a "Cinderella story", as much as we would an "Ugly step-sister" but the difference is a single slipper.  If Marcel can get in, we have seen, even just last year, the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th seeds win in round one, and that was only in the Eastern Conference.  "You never know" said Muddy Capone, "The 7th and 8th seeds in the East made the conference Finals just last season.  Every year we fall into the same routine of discounting the lower seeded teams but every year one of them are going to be heard from in the playoffs, to some extent.  So if you have a ticket to the Ball, you stand a change to get a dance with Cinderella."
60 22 114 (H22 - 502, L24 - -221) After not receiving any offers for his Waiver, GM Marcel went for it.  He traded Pronger for Tanguay and received 22 points.  Montreal is still 19 out in the North and as is, things don't look pretty.  Marcel hopes are that, that could change. Is there any hope?  Long shots everywhere yes, but what else did he have prior?  First, is the NHL Trading Deadline helping his cause.  Will Stastny, Liles and or Kovalev be traded?  If yes, to whom?  Liles going to Toronto will not help anything.  Second, can the Devils keep winning?  Shocking to us was the fact that GM Marcel dropped Zajac, seeing as he was banking on Kovalchuk already.  Finally, will Marcel finish off what he started?  (Earlier in the season GM Marcel's movie quote was from Tombstone, "You gonna do something, or just stand there and bleed?"  He was 54 points out at the time, so this one is only fitting now.)  It was great trading Pronger for Tanguay, when in his situation, but if he doesn't follow it through, maybe moving further assets to build at the minimum a longer shot team, it will have all been for not.
55 23 39 (H22 - 502, L24 - -221) (Correction:  Last CTR the final word of this sentence "here" should have read "there".  Just to be clear.)

Sure you are 48 out, but truly do teams have to stop trying?  There is a difference here and in Dallas (Jr), for it can be argued the effort was put in there. 

GM Marcel has been smoking hot here in Montreal.  Is back to only 46 points out.  With the points in this league to give and carrying Pronger this team could still come back, IF MARCEL WANTS IT TO HAPPEN.  It isn't just a transaction away, it is many, along with an aggressive waiver, but it could be done.  Will it be?  We are talking about GM Marcel here aren't we?
50 24 -128 (H22 - 502, L24 - -221) Sure you are 48 out, but truly do teams have to stop trying?  There is a difference here and in Dallas (Jr), for it can be argued the effort was put in there.  Imagine trading Pronger for 10 and the Montreal guys for 10 and some grabbing better non playoff scorers a month ago?  Maybe a waiver and a 10 point gain in some 6-6 with what was left.  A trade with what you pick up could then compete for a playoff team, built with 3 Hurricanes and 3 Kings, teams that could yet squeak in and either of them going to the Cup finals and winning it for you.  Why would you not try?
45 24 -221 (H22 - 502) I really don't know if this is fitting or not.  Seriously, I'd like to know though...
40 24 -174 (H22 - 502) Now 46 points out with an injured Flyer, two Habs and a King on some Island with the Devil and his son.
35 24 -10 (H22 - 502) Know any fat chicks good at singing?  It is over here and the Pronger injury was the icing on the cake, or more appropriate, the stake through the heart.  NEW YEAR'S WISH:   Turn one second half waiver, this teams biggest asset at this point, into some Draft picks for next season.
30 24 181 (H22 - 502) 14 to 30 to 43 to 54.

That is how many points GM Marcel's Habs were out 15 games ago, than 10, than 5 games ago and now at the 30 game mark.  Still nothing from Marcel.  Assets include Cammalleri and Pronger who total 35 points.  Even squeezing 15 points (something Marcel already turned down for them) leaves him 39 out.  Then a couple 7-7 drops, with some major point gains, can it be done?  Not GM Marcel's style maybe but what is the other option?  ("Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens, Are you gonna do something or just stand there and bleed?" - Tombstone.
25 23 181 (H22 - 502) 14 to 30 to 43.

That is how many points GM Marcel's Habs were out 10 games ago, than 5 games ago and now at the 25 point mark.  Basically, anyone can see, he is fading fast! At 43 points out and carrying assets of Cammalleri, Pronger, Subban and Handzus....can be best described as "Being on the Titanic with a life jacket".  The ship is sinking fast, and you have about three to four hours, to decide what exactly you are going to do, with only that little wee fucking life jacket, in the middle of the Atlantic, in freezing water!
20 22 502 (L22 - 422) "We have some scorers on this team" said GM Marcel.  We just ask, who are they?  GM Marcel just dropped from 14 points out at the CTR 15 game mark to 30 points out in just 35 player games.  This team is going seriously, in the wrong direction, and we believe GM Marcel may be holding on to his beloved Canadiens, managing with his heart, and not his head.  "When you are this far out and have a waiver" says Muddy Capone, "Do you keep your Subban's who have 8 points in 20 games?  You have to cut the string, or use it, to tie up a nice package with some points."  Marcel, did neither. 
15 22 422 (H22 - 475) "Take a fucking French course" GM Marcel said in an email to Muddy Capone, likely just wearing a little thin with the CTR comments.  Who can blame Marcel for his frustrations?  A whopping 16 points out of 4th and without a player to have scored double digits yet on the season.  Kovalchuk, Zajac, and Tavares all have one big ZERO in the CTR ratings and the best players here, Cammalleri, Pronger and Vermette are all under achieving.  There is help on the way in the form of a November 20th Waiver, but can GM Marcel save this team with just a waiver?  That remains to be seen!
10 19 458 (H22 - 475) How do you say DOUBLE YIKES in French?  DOUBLE YILES!!!  GM Marcel has fallen all the way to 16 points back in the North with no signs of being able to overcome this outside Kovalchuk, Zajac, Pronger, Vermette....ALL WAKING UP!  One guy isn't going to reverse the damage.  To make things much worse the Devils just suck so badly right now.  They can't stop anyone from scoring.  GM Chad could score against the Devils right now!  The great news is the Devils are only 4 points out of the playoffs.  If they can prove they belong, and how can't they, Kovalchuk at 6 points and Zajac at 4 are,VERY attractive, and easily traded for major points.
5 22 475 How do you say YIKES in French?  YIKES!!!  No one is scoring and if it wasn't for the NY Islanders quick start this team would be as bad as Calgary's rating last year (OK, we know Cincinnati had the worse rating last season, but that wouldn't be poking fun of Jr's misery and that is no fun in itself).  This team is going to continue to fall here until the Devils (Kovalchuk and Zajac) get ranked or until GM Marcel makes it happen.
