And, since you like to extrapolate, I'd point out that the Kings are 4-0-3 under Sutter. That's 11 points in 7 games for ~ 1.571 P/GP. If they hold that pace over the next 42 games, then we'll finish with another 66 points for a total of 110. HOLY ****, we're gonna be the #1 seed!!!
EDIT: our total would be 111 points, not 110
Fair enough, but I'd put the probability of a slight improvement over half a season ahead of never losing another game in regulation, wouldn't you? My goal wasn't to be snarky with stats--the point is that the team needs more help than I can realistically expect Sutter to deliver on his own. If DL stands pat, it's a coin flip from here on out.
