Finishing 1st in the conference means nothing when you realize that the 8th position only finished with 10 points behind. We were not the Wings. We didn't finish with 24 points ahead.

Flyers finished with a whopping 9 points behind while we were 4-0 against them all year. Just put that to 2-2, and they finish 1 point behind....

If you're talking about that 15 years of rebuilding well I agree and not. Past management was not rebuilding, we were repatching and not well may I add. But clearly with this new management, this "rebuild" looks better than it never did. If we would have had that management around the Roy trade, we would not have had that many problems....Having said that Gainey is not perfect and he proved it this year.
