Realistically I don't see why we can't win the division. Who do people think will win it? Can't be the flyers, devils or icelanders. So the pens? Is crosby even ready to play yet? Is Malkin going to be fully healed? Is MAF going to be more good or bad this year? **** that team, no reason we can't beat them.
Having a shot at the division isn't the same thing as expecting to win the division. Of course we could win it...but we'd need a number of things to break right, and at the moment there are still quite a few questions. Considering we finished 8th last year, and have improved on paper, I think expecting us to finish 4-6 is a legitimate projection.
