If we were in the West we'd have no chance but... we're not.

I still think we have a legit shot at the playoffs. I only hope that mgmt goes the 'seller' route instead.
What you guys in majority still don't get (since the summer) that East got a lot stronger and its shows in tight standings. I'm absolutely stunned by your persistence. It was consensus before the season even started. Granted, West has more .500+ teams atm, but balance is a lot closer this year.

Standings actually reflect actual strength of teams so far. There is no team behind Leafs that is better. All those teams have their own problems.

As to the 'seller' route, Habs don't have pieces contenders will want, a.e. good veteran players on last year of their contract. Most of your veteran players are untradeable unless you want to add to get rid of their contracts. You can trade Gill, Kostitsyn and Moen, who fit the bill of deadline trading.
