On one hand we suck ass,
And just making the playoffs is going to be a tremendous chore,
And all of us seem to be in agreement that even if we do make the dance we have no chance of making it past the first round (outside of facing Vegas).
On the other hand we are the 10th best team in the league,
And if we beat the Habs on Tuesday we'll have 84 point in 70 games, which is exactly the same record as the Pens who now lead the Metro ...
So ... WTF?
I'm pretty sure this Central Division pressure has finally gotten to me.
Imagine missing out on the playoffs while still being a top 15 team in the league? It's very very doable.
This is partially the league's fault with their wild card nonsense.
The Stars really should be a mid-tier playoff team at around 5th in the conference or so. Instead, the shitty pacific division teams are technically ahead of them because they lead their shitty division, forcing the Stars into what is really the 7th seed as the top wild card team.
