But the level of injuries we had wasn't bad enough to take a cup contender and turn them into a 9th seed. Ergo, we weren't a cup contender, and we probably aren't a cup contender this year, either.
They've added a little character, subtracted a little talent, and still figure to be in the 6-10 range.
It was argued by some that we missed the playoffs last season due to injuries. Its really not an earth shatter idea.
This isn't a shot at you just at the idea that its somehow crazy to suggest injuries played a factor in them missing the playoffs. I don't think any one is arguing that injuries cost us a run for the Cup last year.
