When we get our players back (if) the sky is the limit. Until then, I guess 4th in the West isn't that bad.
We are one. ONE.
point ahead of LA, St. Louis, Minnesota, San Jose.
We have played 2 or 3 more games than all those teams. If we had the same number of games played, LA, SJ, STL, would all be ahead of us in my opinion. We'd be in the 7-8 spot or even further out looking in.
Chicago and Anaheim are solidly in. Vancouver, barring an epic meltdown, is solidly in. The are ahead of us in points with 2 games in hand. St. Louis, SJ, LA, I think are locks to make the playoffs. They are solidly built teams with games in hand. That leaves only 2 spots. I think we take one, but as a bubble team.
You optimistic people simply have no idea how to read these numbers in front of you. Yes, we're #4. But we have played more games than pretty much anyone in the conference. Only 2 other teams out of 15 have played the same number of games as us. No one else has played more. Most of them have 2-3 games in hand.
Sitting in #4, only 1 point up, when all the other teams have plenty of games to make it up on us? That makes us the very definition of a fringe team.
