January 24th last season we were at 48 game mark, had 53 points, and were sitting in 9th.

It's a good start. But it's a small sample size. We play Boston Saturday, if we lose that, Pittsburgh/Buffalo/NYR/Winnipeg are all playing either tomorrow or Saturday, so we could jump right back out.

Small sample size means 1 game you can move up or down like 2-4 spots in the standings. I'll wait until the ~20 game mark, and even then it's pretty early (but due to the shortened season, it's more significant than it would be otherwise).
