I'll agree with the original post and say that things definitely could of been different. Markov not necessarily in game shape, Bourqur injured, PK situation, AGally and BGally question marks. But to suggest we don't have staying power is pure poppycock. Every team knew it was a 48 game season. Every one was aware of the urgency. It's an even playing field. We have not fallen off after 40. Why would we after 60 or 70?

Now I'm not saying we will finish with 110 + points next season. But, this years team, given the way they have played, is exactly where they should be. No excuses.
