We've got a comfortable lead up on 6th.

But hey, maybe the Leafs are actually a good team, will play lights out, and take that 5th spot from us without us having to suck horribly.

EDIT: Or maybe Montreal keeps losing and we take 4th?
Bleh. Much rather go for the division. It's unlikely, but still possible, and results in much better vibes for the playoffs than slipping to 6th.

No, I'm not a girl. Stop asking!
