I figured we'd be about 5-7 points back by the end of the season but to be 10 points down is unacceptable. I think that gives us less points then last year over a full season The only thing holding us out of 1st overall is that other teams have gotten worse not that we've gotten better.
Edit: Last year we finished 21 points out of the playoffs. If we only win 1 game of the 4 remaining we'll statistically be worst then last year. The good news is no matter what we can't be as bad as the 2010-11 Oilers.
Might be able to get Mike Babcock this summer. Dunno if he'd come here without big changes though. Kreuger is going to get until the end of the year and be canned.
Is Babcock in danger of losing his job if they miss the playoffs?
If that is the case, Babcock, Ruff and potentially Laviolette who apparently is in trouble in Philly will be available. MacT would be stupid to keep Krueger with coaching behemoths like those being potentially available.
Lets hope that the team continues to look listless, goes into the offseason having lost 12 of 13 and forces MacT's hand to make coaching changes. Probably wishful thinking but it's our only hope.
