By Chris Boyle, Habs Eyes on the Prize

Q1) Canadiens Breakout of the Year?

Andrei Kostitsyn. He has played with purpose through 5 games.  He is in a contract year and has been rid of the distraction of his brother.
 
Q2) Darkhorse Breakout on the Canadiens?
 
Not much in unproven talent in Montreal. Everybody knows P.K. Subban, so it would have to be Lars Eller or Benoit Pouliot. Eller is unlikely to get the PP minutes, so I will roll with Pouliot.
 
Q3) Breakdown Player on the Canadiens?
 
Andrei Markov. He is still an elite player, but has suffered two massive injuries within the last 12 months. 
 
Q4) League-Wide Breakout of the Year?
  
Phil Kessel. He finally breaks the PPG mark.
 
Q5) Who are your First Five Picks in a Fantasy Draft?
 
1. Ovechkin
2. Crosby
3. Stamkos
4. Malkin
5. Kovalchuk (RW/LW eligibility)
 
Q6) Best Value for Money Fantasy Goalie?
 
Tie. Tim Thomas and Carey Price. Price was drafted in the 17th round in one league and Thomas undrafted in the other. That is ridiculous value.
 
Q7) Taylor or Tyler?
 

Taylor Hall. Both short-term & long-term.  

  

Q8) Your Stanley Cup Pick?

 

Washington.

 

BONUS)  Can Carey Price hack it in Montreal and become the elite goalie everyone is expecting? 

 

Yes. He has been humbled and his form has been strong early on. As long as the Canadiens are a playoff team the media will put away the knives.

 
Thanks to Chris for his insight... go check out his stuff over on Habs Eyes on the Prize, if you do nothing else definitely read his epic piece on Carey Price and why you need to leave him the F alone.
