And where did they go? How far did they go in the playoffs with that team? You know, the '99 Knicks got hot in the playoffs and got to the finals. Teams get hot. But everyone knew the Knicks had no place being in the finals. They weren't very good.

The Islanders weren't that good and their hot streak ended against...Buffalo, if I recall correctly. Think about the Rangers last year. They had some kind of weird upper hand over the Devils all year. They got by them quickly. But once they went up against a much better team, they couldn't cut it.

And this team will do the same. And assuming Redden and Gomez stay on this team, probably the next year as well.
