I'm kind of the opposite here. We seem to be constantly getting outplayed and still managing to gain a respective amount of wins but anyone who follows sports knows that will catch up to you. So I kind of fear for that day.
Agreed. They are a one line team even strength (just depends on which line will score that night) and the power play is mediocre at best this year. If the offense doesn't really come around, the wins will start to dry up.
I have a hazy memory of an episode of M*A*S*H when Colonel Flagg asked an intimidated Radar if he had ever heard of "the Malaysian chest torture" and after Radar said "No," the response was "Good, because there's no such thing!" Perhaps, the same approach was used. That or a simple plea to play better hockey.
