But I still think this team will win 1 in 3 games, and perhaps get 7 or 8 points every 10 games. This will mean we'll fall in teh standings and out of a playoff spot, but I don't think it guarantees we drop into the bottom 5, give we are already 30% into the season. Decent chance though. If we go on a long losing streak, I won't be bemoan it too much. Sucks for Alfie though. Hope he comes back next year.
I think you might be a little optimistic with your projection. 7-8 pts per 10 games ends the season with 39-43 pts. That would pace out to 68-74 pts over an 82 game sched, wich historically is good for a top 5 pick. 74 ots was at best the 24th place since the lockout.
