Not to single you out, but I often see this type of "don't worry, look how good they're doing" reference to the standings...and it's often misleading and misguided.

While many fans love to overplay their situation and downplay others, the reality is that the Sabres are two losses away from falling into 10th place. TENTH! Keep in mind: most of the top 10 teams in the East are only seperated by 1-3 points...and most of them have 1-2 games-in-hand on the Sabres.

So it's great to say they're second in the conference, but NYR & Flyers are only 4th & 5th because Penz are 1st---and all have more points than Buffalo. And as far as the division, tied with Toronto? Ok, I feel better now
