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.
Absolutely, I agree.

I just couldn't resist bringing up the cup that should've been. I also realize those Oilers were a rare exception. Most of the team was much better than their regular season record showed, they were just missing a goalie, and they added that piece at the deadline.
