I'm not commenting on Carolina's placement for two reasons:

1. Standings change from year to year. It wasn't too long ago that the Rangers were a whole 2 points ahead of the Canes in the final standings.
2. If you don't believe a top 6 with Ruutu, Skinner, both Staals and Nash couldn't compete, I don't know what to tell you.
1. Saying we KNOW the list LIKELY expanded is pretty much politician speak to sway an unknown in your favor.

2. I didnt say they couldnt compete did I? All I said was there were a handful of approved teams with known interest that give him a better chance.
