Perhaps you should read my entire first post before commenting on it but am glad we agree on the part you did read. Good day sir.

Playoffs. Interesting that as soon as the leafs dump Burke then they become a playoff team.

I knew Burke and Lupul were holding us back.

We also cannot forget this is a shortened season, we are now 15% of the way through. This is about equal to 12-13 games played in an 82 game season. I think many (including me) have a hard time remembering that and see 7 games as a very small part of the season.

I'm sorry but wtf is this bragging about we're in a playoff spot, you do realize were only 7 games in with 41 remaining, a lot can happen between now and then.

The thing that impresses me is how everyone is working hard every night and is buying INTO a defense first system. Sure there's some kinks but I have no doubt we're on the right track.

teams better than us

nyr
bos
phi
pits
nj

teams maybe better than us
car
buf

teams no better than us
ott (minus spezza)
was
tam
fla
mtl
win
nyi

i'd say were fighting for that last playoff spot again with the 'teams no better than us'
with a chance to knock on the door of the 'teams maybe better than us'

so we could finish anywhere from 6th to 15th

Too early to look.

7/48 games in. 14.5% into the season.

Between 16-24 it gets interesting.

By 36 if you're not close, you're out.

I'd put Buf as a team definitely better than us, and Ottawa as well.

*Goes back to page 1 to find OP's name

*Writes down the OP's name - TheProspector

*Vows to stab TheProspector with a toothpick up the left nostril for jinxing a decent start to the season, when this thing goes belly up again.

Vezina type goaltender.

Amazing Dman.

Overall a real hard working, grafty team with a great blend of young players and leadership?

Yeah I'd think Ottawa have a slight edge on us, even without Spezza. As long as Anderson keeps it up, they will score enough goals to make up for the loss of Spezza

Take it for what it is worth but we had a winning month in Jan 4-3. Could they have had a 6-1 start if they kept leads hell yeah but at least they have a winning month.

Go 2 games over .500 in Feb. 3 Games over .500 in March and 4 games over .500 in April and you have a team that is 10 games over .500 and that would be a miracle but could happen.

Keep having winning months and that almost guarantees you fighting for a final playoff spot come late April.
