<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Kotkaniemi15</b></div><div>My assessment of the team’s problems right now:

Forwards
Problem: A lack of chemistry and even luck with the forwards. Few people are gelling, and I’m sure everyone going cold at the same time is also a factor.
Solution: Mostly just wait it out and hope things work out. Toffoli, Anderson, Gallagher, Hoffman, and likely Dvorak should be good for <strong>at least</strong> 20 goals each barring massive drop-offs, so it’s not like this team won’t score. You can’t force chemistry, and there’s not much Ducharme can do other than continuing to throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks.

Defense
Problem: Officiating and the loss of Joel Edmundson. Our D was not good in the regular season last year. They did get a lot better in the playoffs, which was partially because of the more lax officiating (specifically Chiarot &amp; Weber). Weber isn’t here anymore, but Savard hasn’t brought anything positive in contrast to Weber’s regular season, and Chiarot is losing effectiveness, putting us at a deficit. Now that we’re without Edmundson and our 2nd pairing is ineffective, the D corps is a mess.
Solution: When Edmundson returns that hopefully returns the top pair to being a part of the team that can be leaned on. But still, for the D to improve in the regular season or even get to the heights it reached in the playoffs, Romanov needs to grow into more than he was last year and Chiarot/Savard need to provide something similar at least to what Chiarot/Weber provided last year.

Goaltending
Problem: We aren’t as good without Carey. It hasn’t affected the outcome of any of the games, but we’re worse without him.
Solution: Wait until Carey is back. Maybe we trade for a cheap backup if that isn’t close enough.

Power Play
Problem: The 2nd unit was never good last year. Up until the addition of Hoffman last night, it was lacking a trigger man. The 1st unit (which has now been shaken up) seems to be dealing with everyone just going on a cold streak. Caufield has been snake bitten. Also, no one can replace Corey Perry’s impact in front of the net.
Solution: Hoffman should hopefully make the 2nd unit dangerous. The absence of Weber will prevent the 2nd unit from just being a time-waster. The rest is similar to the forwards, they need to work on chemistry and hope people break out of their slumps.

Intangibles
Problem: There’s a possibility that this team has mental hurdles with all of the players that they have lost over the summer or aren’t currently with the team.
Solution: ?</div></div>

I agree with everything u said

I think that the real problem is mental. Without Weber or Price in the locker room it feels like the boys have no more motivation

Ripped a page out of <a href="/users/kotkaniemi15" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@kotkaniemi15</a> 's book and I took a look at our offseason acquisitions and departures for the past 5 seasons and where our mindset was at the time...
only taking a look at notable players or ones that have played a considerable amount of games for the Canadiens

Maybe start at the bottom at work your way up so it's kind of in chronological order.


2021 offseason heading into the 2021-22 season

After a painful Stanley Cup Finals loss, Montreal is looking to bounce back even stronger. The expectations are to contend for a playoff spot in the Atlantic division and see the progressions of the Suzuki-Caufield duo that was so good in the playoffs. With the most additions AND losses in a single offseason in the last 5 years, MTL is currently 0-4-0, has only scored.3 goals in those 4 games and has apparent chemistry issues. I think the problem is chemistry... this is just not the same team we saw in June and July and it shows with the number of transactions they made. The only real answer at the moment is time.

2020 offseason heading into the 2020-21 season

Before the suspension of the season, it looked like the 2018-19 campaign was a fluke as the Habs finished as the 24th seed in the whole league. However, the bubble playoffs proved that this team was on the come up with a young center core of Suzuki and Kotkaniemi. The emergence of the young guys lead to guys like Toffoli and Perry to sign with MTL in free agency. The only expectation this season was to make the playoffs and then see what would happen...

2019 offseason heading into the 2019-20 season

A surprise season lead Montreal to be only one win short of a playoff spot. What was supposed to be a down year turned out to be a revelation. Domi and Tatar had breakout seasons while Kotkaniemi looked like he would be the future number one center after a pretty good rookie year. In the offseason, MTL didn't change much but got a little more depth. Rookies Suzuki and Fleury were making their professional debuts this upcoming season while Kinkaid was finally the right backup the Habs needed since Budaj.

Losses : 4
Shaw - Trade
Benn - Free Agency
Deslauriers - Trade
Lernout - Free Agency

Additions : 5
Suzuki - Signed ELC
Chiarot - Free Agency

2018 offseason heading into the 2018-19 season

After a disappointing year, the Habs looked to start some sort of retool molded around Price and Weber. The team got younger and it was expected to be a really bad year after having traded away Pacioretty and Galchenyuk.

Losses : 3

Domi - Trade
Armia - Trade

2017 offseason heading into the 2017-18 season

After an underwhelming playoff series against the Rangers, Montreal was looking to keep Radulov and add more even offense to make the playoffs again next year. They also revamped the blue line after the losses of Markov, Emelin, and Beaulieu by replacing them with Schlemko, Morrow, and Alzner...

Losses : 6
Radulov - Free Agency
Markov - Retirement
Emelin - Expansion Draft
Beaulieu - Trade
Sergachev - Trade

Redmond - Trade

Additions : 7
