i think playoffs are completely out of the picture unless 2 things happen
1) we hire a proper head coach be it mcgill, robinson, nolan, etc, someone who will demand discipline and defense
2) we sign khabibulin, he is still young and sather has always wanted this guy, if sather shells it out for anyone it will be him
if those 2 things happen, a young team that plays hard with some good vets and a goalie to lead them, then the 8th spot isnt unreasonable
but those are two huge ifs, we havent had a good coach in a decade and signing khabi is not going to be cake
