To a large degree I consider this hockey's version of Moneyball. This is a group of guys that shouldn't be in the position they are by all accounts. However, management and the coach have built a team and an atmosphere where castoffs have been able to come in and make significant contributions to help the team win. It's not as bad as the year before when the team didn't even have a 20 goal scorer on the team, but it pails in comparison to many playoff teams and certainly all of them left in it.

The players deserve the credit for beating the adversity as well, it's just an all around win-win situation.
