It was way back in 1993, the last time the Montreal Canadiens, or any Canadian-based team whatsoever won the Stanley Cup. It is now 2015, and 23 years later a nation that prides itself on its pasttime is without a championship. But those very canadiens promise to bring the cup back. Its still early in the season, but Montreal has a record of 11-2, leading the entire league.
The Canadiens onslaught is lead by their star goalie Carey Price. Even though he’s currently sidelined with a lower body injury, he promises to lead the Canadiens into the promise land. With a 2.43 career GAA, he’s been a mainstay for the Habs since 2008 and only seems to be getting better with experience.
Their offensive attack so far this season has been extremely balanced, with seven players (including star defense man PK Subban) already having 10 points through thirteen games. But there have been other great Canadian teams that have gone Cup-less lately. It seems that its up to the Canadiens to end the draught, but only time will tell. If not them, who will it be?
