For every Habs player that had a great year(like 4), there were two that had crappy/injured years so the law of averages is on out side.
Also, don't forget that most of our losses were 1 goal games and our GF/GA was not that bad, meaning a small improvement could be a big boost in the standings. Lots of teams above us could drop like Ottawa Florida New Jersey Boston.
Rask is a much steadier goalie than Thomas. Thomas would lose games and steal games. Rask will be more consistent. They are a better team with him in there I fear.
