It'll be hilarious on the boards if we finish right up near Boston, just above the lottery; #25 and #24.... Boston on with the tank nation ******** ends up just as they had wished otherwise.
I do think we will be quite successful over this last little stretch pre and post-olympics. The team just looks so much different, so much more capable; with a much more positive attitude. And we have the goaltending to match now... our lack of offensive depth should be solved by the return of Grabovski post-Olympics as well. I have a good feeling about the rest of the season. It'll be over soon. That's a relief.
even if they do bad they still win. while i think it is possible we get out of the bottom 5 it is unlikely we get out of the bottom 10 (ill go on record and say impossible) so if boston has 2 top 10 picks it will be pretty make them a stronger team in the future.
I think it's safe to say that the chances of Toronto catching Boston are very very slim to none.
The only way it happens is if Boston makes a solid effort at tanking, or they get a big injury. They still have a lot of depth left from last year, a year where they were a much more relevant/stronger team.
it is possible but even though their so called free falling it's not like we've been lighting it up as of late. With the deadline coming and yet at least one more part of our offence looking like he'll be moved we could be struggling very badly for the remainder of the season. I don't see J.S shuting out every team so I just don't see us moving up too much in the standings. Although, I will admit that I didn't notice there spot in the standings until now. If they keep free falling they could be looking at 2 very high picks this draft. That's a scary thought.
