I thought that it may be interesting to take a look at the Montreal Canadiens forwards—or those that will presumably be on the team, I should say—on the roster heading into the 2011-2012 season.
Last season was certainly disappointing for some and unexpectedly positive for others.
The fact of the matter is that this group of forwards will never be touted as flashy superstars and will most likely go unnoticed and unappreciated by critics around the league.
Nevertheless, they seem to get the job done.
I think that the addition of Erik Cole gives the Habs three legitimate scoring lines. Perhaps I'm wrong, but time will tell.
Have a look at my preseason ranking.
