Should Montreal Buy Or Sell?

from Sean Gordon of the Globe and Mail,

Perhaps the situation is best described in economics-ese, by borrowing a term like “seller’s dilemma.”

Whatever frame you choose, the Montreal Canadiens are in the full throes of whatever “it” is.

In the countdown to the Feb. 27 NHL trade deadline, the Habs are six points out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and with three games over the next six days – two of them against conference opponents, including one with the faltering Washington Capitals – hope to narrow the gap.

“We’re just so close,” forward Ryan White said, “and we know we can get there.”

But whatever illusion of proximity remains concerning postseason hockey in Montreal must be tempered by unforgiving statistical reality – the mathematical models say the Habs have a one in 13 chance of racking up enough points to get there.
