they have 2, maybe 3 players outscoring the whole habs roster
thats about it
Honestly, I look at the standings and I couldn't care less about that. Depth is more important than having 2-3 guys that score a lot. What is that gonna get you?
I just did a bit of research and I'm going to back up my argument even more.
We look at Ottawa's top three scorers: Heatley(22), Alfredsson(21), Spezza(17)
And Montreal's: Koivu(19), Tanguay(17), Markov(17)
That's combined for 61 points for Ottawa's top three, and 53 for Montreal's. 8 points of difference.
If we look further though, at the top 6 of each team, we add on Kovalev(16), Lang(14) and Plekanec(12) for Montreal, and Kuba(16), Picard(8) and Fisher(7) for Ottawa.
Montreal is now ahead 95-91. And that's considering the 8 point difference from the top 3. And I highly doubt that you want me to continue the comparison with players like Higgins, the Kostitsyns, Latendresse, Hamrlik, etc to players like Ruutu, Folgino, Donovan and Vermette.
And this is just points, we're not even looking at other important stats such as +/-, where Montreal destroys Ottawa.
A quick glance at the goal total for each team also backs up my points.
Well, I already knew all you said. But what I said was Ottawa has 2 or 3 players who have more points than all of montreals roster. Because thats all there is. I didn't give any other reasons. Because there were none. Trust me you didn't have to write all that. lol.
