Dude, they're tied for the lead in their division. They were top 3 in the conference.
Do you know how many teams win the first round of the playoff? Why are they worse than any of the 12 teams they are above in the standings?
"Having each others backs" is cute and all, but at the end of the day goals for and goals against are what win championships, not cross checking and grabbing guys in scrums.
I swear, some people who watch this sport actually dislike hockey and just want to see MMA on ice. All this cutesy "buzzword" talk about toughness and work ethic. You honestly think guys don't try? They're the best players in the world, you don't get there and stay there without working your ass off.
Meanwhile, everybodies poster boy Gerbe has been a black whole of suck this season. When he's not falling down in the corners he's completely whiffing on every shot and pass he tries to make. But at least his skating style makes him look like he really tries and he's not afraid to meaninglessly check guys into the boards long after the puck has gone elsewhere. That's what people want after all.
