Your 2013 5 in (edit:40) thread

Youll recall we had the ever popular 6 points in 5 game thread last year. The basis of it was in the 94 ranger season where Messier (and the coach at that time who will remain nameless ;-) ) broke the season up into 5 manageable game so as to not look too far or be too high or low per game. If they achieved the 6 points they got off from practice the next day or when feasable.

Here is the lst half of the shortened season in 4 game sets since its a short 48 game season. Im predicting 56 points will do it, IMHO. Therefore 5 in 4 average will make it happen!!! Ill keep it updated as always.

This thread / lounge is so that we dont get too high with each win or panic with one or two losses. feel free to chat here if the post gdt get too emotional :-)

And don't get down if we do a 4 in 4, there is room for a few of those in the 5 in 4.


1st) W canes 1/21 @Sens 1/22 @Habs 1/24 Sens
2nd) 1/26 Flyers 1/29 @Bolts 1/31 Jets 2/3 @buff
3rd) 2/5 @Jets 2/7@Flyers 2/9 @Caps 2/12 Caps
4th) 2/14 habs 2/16 bolts 2/18 Leafs 2/21@Flyers
5th) 2/22@Pens 2/24 Bruins 2/26 Pens 2/28 Sabres
6th) 3/2 @canes 3/3 canes 3/5 Jets 3/7 @caps

lst four...might be one of the easier 5 in 4s. Lets do it!!!!

thoughts, analysis welcome!!!

Ps ATF, anytime you want to come in and make this pretty go for it!

I'm honestly quite surprised although no one has blatantly stated it I can surmise from multiple people here that expectations for this shortened season are quite high! In the scheme of things I think its very difficult to expect greatness from a squad that is in the biggest transition year of what could be the next decade of greatness.

Currently, outsiders looking at our team would see patchwork throughout the lineup one need not look beyond our goaltending tandem and defense currently missing gudbranson, kulikov, and possibly now weaver its hard to see where high expectations are coming from.

That being said I think we will be competitive in mostly every game and possibly right up until the end. This team with Dineen at the helm does have a knack for turning more than a few heads.

I would be lying If i told you all that my sights are on a shortened season with an injury plagued lineup out of the gate. Rather, my eyes are certainly set on several months down the road. No one here needs reminding that next year's lineup will likely feature names including bjugstad, howden, petrovic, shore, and markstrom- its enough to make any casual fan salivate. I hope we can get another good draft pick this year and begin our true rise to greatness starting this summer.

I'm still going to sit back and enjoy every game as I always do knowing the glory days are fast on the horizon.

Something interesting this season is that any particular team with a goalie that goes on a hot streak will have a great chance of making the playoffs. I have a feeling we might see one or two teams that typically don't make it go in this year. Slumps and hot streaks will define this season.

Excellent thoughts PH1. I think every team looks awkward right now, and itll be a sprint where the hot goalies win this season. We will be competitive, entertaining, and the games should count till near the end. What else can a fan ask for?

I am one happy 9 year old tonight! (The King's glove save too...)

We look extra dangerous if we can sweep the north in the next two...

I just hope our boys don't get TOO ahead of themselves! They looked great because they worked hard and played smart!

Kovy was awesome. Not the old speed, but the hands are 19 yo, and he opened up so much ice...the perfect guy for huby.

Can't remember where I read it but I saw an interesting stat that said during the 94-95 strike shortened season any team who had a 3 or more game losing streak failed to make the playoffs.

I think this team is a lot better than outsiders are predicting. Yes, we lost Garrison, but we should see a better offensive production with who we have up front. 1 through 9 has loads of talent and scoring capability, and we probably have more talent on our 2nd line than any of our previous 1st lines since the Bure era (not counting last seasons top line). We should be a top 10 PP unit again, we should be a better SO team, and I think given the talent this team has as a whole, they should make the playoffs. Of course, the key to our season is going to be getting our guys back from injury, and being a bit lucky afterwards, but if that were to happen, there is no reason why we arent a division contender once again. Outside of a couple of teams in the East, there is no team that is head and shoulders better than us, and there are very few teams in the whole league that work harder, or are better coached as well.

Cant argue with anything you said. It really can go either way. I think games against teams that will be there in the end such as ottawa, tampa, washington, carolina, and new jersey are even more critical because the division and last couple of spots will be fought in my opinion by these 5 teams.

Nice post!

Let the first bold sink in. After all the bad we've been through, you can't help but to feel positive about the next 10 years. I've been a fan since day one but I can say that this is the most I've studied up on our prospects within the organization. With the internet, highlights, interviews, articles, etc., you can get to really see where some of these kids are at in their development. And it really feels like these guys coming up are going to help establish a winning atmosphere in Florida. I believe everyone deserves that.

For the second bold, I like to think Dineen plays a big factor here. I've been forever a Niners fan and I can't tell you enough of how much of an impact Harbaugh has brought to the team. Like the Panthers, the Niners have been horrible the last decade. This guy comes in and turns things around. Now we're in the Super Bowl and have a bright future. It's been so long that I was in high school when we beat San Diego in our last appearance. Now after all of our coaching turnovers, Dineen has the chance to be that guy. I liked Pete and he got us close his first year but that's as close as we got with him. Dineen helped get us back to the playoffs and we'll see how he continues to become a better coach each year.

And the last bold couldn't have been said any better.

I agree. Really want to see improvement on special teams, notably the penalty kill. Last night was a great start for both areas! Shootouts should also have better endings. And Billy touched on it last night but our 4 on 4 should improve as well. Straight up winning more games in overtime can grab us that precious other point instead of losing in the shootout like years past.

Yeah, well Dineen breaking our skill line up was not good for the progress of this thread.

He was getting too "cutesy" with his lines. He should have just kept steady, even in a loss... would have been better for lines to keep familiarity with eachother instead of switching things up.
