If we out work the other team, we have enough talent to win half our games or more. It's unlikely, however, we have the skill and hard work necessary to finish in the top four in the West. Unless Bob or Mason has an outstanding year. But if we get piss poor goal tending, we are probably a lottery team.
I ran some numbers on that late last season. 20 points may sound generous, but it isn't that far off. Of course, that's 20 points with the same offensive output.
