As for the Canes, I'm still in wait-and-see mode. Obviously, it's nice to be where we are after 8 of our first 12 on the road. But we're a .500 team at home with crappy special teams, a patchwork defense, and nary a point inside the division we're winning by two points.

Sorry, but I just don't think we should plan the parade yet. And actually, the Leafs game is a big test. Coming off a long roadie against an average team playing without two key players has "trap" written all over it. A good team will still find a way to win. We shall see if we're a good team.

Having said all that, I think it would be fun to see how long we can hold the division lead without a single point against division teams. We only play three of the final seven February games inside the division, so we can go 4-3 and probably still lead the division with 23 points on March 1. After that, we're actually going to have to beat a division rival, I'd think.
Not meant as an excuse at all I'm actually looking forward to it in a way next 5-8 games could show what kind of depth we have.
