The Montreal Canadiens are finally getting to where they need to be.
Carey Price is healthy, and the team is scoring left and right. The two huge wins against Detroit (6-3 the first time and 10-1 the second) have definitely given fans and the team the confidence boost they needed.
Does this mean is that Marc Bergevin was right? Back in October, he said this to the media:
"I'm not going to make a move just to panic."

Almost everyone brushed his comment off initially, but Bergevin saw something that we couldn’t see. He knew a big trade wasn’t the answer, and despite Price being injured and a few trades taking place, he had a feeling the Canadiens could pull it together.
They did in a very impressive way.
It seems that Montreal needed to fall seven times to get back up eight. This team is really putting in the effort now and moving in the right direction. We can only hope this streak, or at least more Ws, will keep happening. This may be a freak win streak, but even if it is we now know what this team is capable of in different situations.
The Canadiens have the skill, talent and manpower — it’s just consistency that seems to be the problem. This isn’t new for the Habs; inconsistency may as well be a part of the team name since the early 2000s.
I’m excited to see what the rest of the calendar year has in store for Montreal. Hopefully the Habs can end the year strong and get ready for 2018 and the playoffs.
