As great as they are playing right now, January and February are LOOMING. Every year, this team struggles from late January through late February and end up having to scramble just to make the playoffs. All the sudden Lundqvist can't stop a beach ball, and everyone who was scoring the first half suddenly can't bury a puck into an open net during scrambles in front. It's like freaking clock work.

I am loving this season so far, but I am scared to death of January and February. If they someone manage to not fall apart during that stretch like they normally do every season, and finish in the top 4 of the conference and FINALLY draw home ice in a playoff round, then they will start to be taken seriously. They win a few rounds, then they'll be seen as legit threats. They are on the cusp of it right now as it is, this team is very good, and even though I'm scared of mid season, I'm cautiously optimistic that this year might FINALLY be different!
