Hilarious stat that proves just how bad the Habs are this season

Well... that's bad.

The Montreal Canadiens have had a very "up and down" season thus far, with their most recent win against the Calgary Flames keeping them afloat in the Eastern conference playoff race.

They are 16-15-4, which puts them 4 points out of a playoff spot with just over half the season to go.

But that's not the hilarious stat.

When you look at their roster - filled with the likes of Max Pacioretty, Jonathan Drouin, Alex Galchenyuk, Brendan Gallagher, Shea Weber, etc., who would you picture as the team's point-scoring leader?

If you guessed Nicolas Deslauriers, you're wrong - but if you guessed Phillip Danault, you're bang on.

Yes. Phil Danault leads the Canadiens in scoring - a team full of star scoring wingers. That's when you know things are going poorly for your team. To add insult to injury, Danault only has 21 points. His team-leading 21 points are the lowest total for a team leader in the entire NHL.

The Buffalo Sabres and Arizona Coyotes have at least one better scorer than the Canadiens.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have 6. The Tampa Bay Lightning have 8, with one tied at 21, and two with over double the amount of points respectively.

But the drive for 25 is still alive, right?
