#19 - Chipchura would be playing in Hamilton.. :(

#20 - That Hamrlik would prove THIS valuable. We all thought he'd help, but he's shown that he's crucial to our team's functioning.

#9 - Sergei Kostitsyn would have passed Ryder in the depth chart

I don't know, but the arrival of Sergei seems to me like a key factor in the season. He was good (not great) but somehow his brother Andrei went on to play at a higher level and his line just went crazy from there. And Andrei becoming a threat, it gives Kovalev just enough space. And Kovalev has been able to keep his play up (and motivation) all year. (and what can we say about Plekanec's confidence this year.. very nice). But what I'm trying to point on is the domino effect of the arrival of Sergei. It also showed that there's no guarenteed spot. Even if you're a triple 30 goals scorer, if you don't give the effort, someone else is gonna take your spot.

#27- We would turn down Hossa and keep are original team at the deadline.

it really isn't that surprising, all things considered.

I would have been truly surprised at the beginning of the season if somebody told me the habs would be in the Hossa sweepstakes.

#30- Josh Gorges would be a regular and would be one of the most trusted Habs on D

#31- This may not be a surprise but the Habs would be 6-0 against the Bruins this season so far. I forget hoe many in a row it has been since last season as well.
