To make the playoffs, Habs will need to play, at the very least, 0.610 -- win 28 games out of 46; 10 more wins than losses.
The "crybabies" I'm refering too are obviously those who went way overdramatic about the recent failures of the team.
Your numbers are actually making playoffs chances realistic.
Spitting on a chance to make the playoffs because they need a 0.610 2nd half of season is not the kind of attitude I'm expecting of players, neither the fans.
I've said it before, the so called "realistic" fans are giving themselves a win-win situation. A win if the team indeed ends up not making the playoffs, and then brag about how they were right not to have believed in their team. A win if the teams ends up being better than they thought, then celebrating with those who believed from the start. Too often, the term "realistic" means "scared pissed off fan". I'd call it "desperate hockey knowledge self-gratification"
The negative fans don't have the right to claim they are being more realistic that those who think they have a good chance to make the playoffs.
Just not at this stage of the season.
