And think about it...even if they did make the playoffs, what could they possibly accomplish against Ottawa/Carolina if they can't even beat Pittsburgh? This is just a lazy team that puts on a show when it feels like it, and man is it frustrating!
Hey Danny boy, good to see you on the boards finally.
Don't worry about some of the over-sensative people here. You can't be pessimistic on these boards unless you never want to hear the end of it.
One things for sure...Unless we start winning games consistently I don't think we'll make the playoffs either. This little stretch of easy teams was supposed to be the run thats gives us a nice point cushion against the teams under us.
You can only say "Oh well we still have more games to play" if you actually win them.
