Instant analysis: Canadiens are for real

The Detroit News

Some people out there aren't big believers in the Montreal Canadiens.

Not that big or physical, not an overly impressive defense some say, no big scoring threats.

Maybe the Canadiens don't overwhelm, but each time I've seen them, they look like a good, well rounded team that uses its speed and have plenty of depth.

And with Carey Price in net, though he didn't play against the Red Wings, he gives Montreal a chance to win every game.

These Montreal Canadiens are going to be a contender well into the spring.
