We will also lose at least 1, if not all 3, of the Ducks games.

Assuming ~half of those losses go to OT, the best we do IMO is 9-5-4 or 9-4-5

"11-5-2"...it sounds so utterly "do-able" when simply looking at the line.

But...

Then we look at the team...and you just know...you might as well read it as if your holding it up to a mirror...


"5-11-2"...is more like it.
