In my opinion, "soon" is too late. The Eastern Conference is too close. I used to think differently, that just getting in stride during the last 5-10 games of the season was everything and playoff seeding was irrelevent. Last season, the Flyers ended up losing the division to New Jersey by one measely point. Instead of drawing a Boston team that was a shell of its first-half self, they matched up against the Leafs. It was a heck of a series, but you'd have more luck finding a three-legged buffalo penny than you would a Leaf or Flyer fan that didn't know in their heart of hearts that their club was never going to make it much further after it emerged.

Every point counts.
