Well think of it :
Ok, so the Habs have 3.9% of making the playoffs.
If they make it as 8th seed they would have 1 chance on 16 to win the cup if each seed had equal chance (not true for obvious reasons).
1/16 of 3.9% is definitely less than 1%
Oilers caim close but there has been a lot of 8th seeded teams in history. Theres always a chance as long as you are in the playoffs obviously but even then its slim for every team except the best ones who have reasonable chances. When you are already that far from making it to the playoffs as we are its pretty much impossible.
