It would be different if it was a normal year where you have games against the east teams, but its not...not sure why people cant figure this out...and dont get me wrong, i want them to make it and it definitely looks much better than it did a week ago, but its still a long ways away and we need a lot of help too, basically the stars have to line up for us to make it, thats all i'm saying.
You also have to remember that Columbus had 12 points in 19 games before they went on this run. They had a lot of ground to cover and they have done that. If they were say a .500 team or around that like the oilers have been, Columbus would have around 33-35 points.
