[QUOTE=Haaabs;43601127]Even if we were to squeak in at 8th place, I don't think we could win the cup the way we've been playing. Its not about making the playoffs, its about winning the cup.

The rest of the season should be spent giving the young guys time to develop and make whatever mistakes they want while learning from them.[/QUOTE

no one making the playoffs not habs best thing thag could happen for a better future is losing

Well think of it :

Ok, so the Habs have 3.9% of making the playoffs.

If they make it as 8th seed they would have 1 chance on 16 to win the cup if each seed had equal chance (not true for obvious reasons).

1/16 of 3.9% is definitely less than 1%

Oilers caim close but there has been a lot of 8th seeded teams in history. Theres always a chance as long as you are in the playoffs obviously but even then its slim for every team except the best ones who have reasonable chances. When you are already that far from making it to the playoffs as we are its pretty much impossible.

Absolutely, I agree.

I just couldn't resist bringing up the cup that should've been. I also realize those Oilers were a rare exception. Most of the team was much better than their regular season record showed, they were just missing a goalie, and they added that piece at the deadline.
