In addition to the stats line, I tend to see a lot of our games where the opposition just doesn't look that impressive. Winnipeg for one is a team that simply IS NOT better than us. But they have more points. Even when we play Toronto or Ottawa, I don't see those teams being better. I think our team has just lost more than its fair share of "unlucky" games. Or been "less opportune" in clutch moments. Or something like that. Every team has wins it deserved to lose and losses it deserved to win... but it only takes 5 additional games of imbalance in that cosmic karma for the Habs to be 15th instead of in the hunt.

I'd like to be "in the hunt" because I'd like to see the team make the playoffs. But teams in the hunt also miss out. And I guess the silver lining to our "unluckiness" is that at least if we were going to miss out, better to miss out and pick from 15th in the Conference than 9th (been there done that). So maybe there is a cosmic balance after all.
