Whoa! Careful, now.
Hope is always there when the math is fair but numbers put pressure on probably outcomes.
Preparing for a probable outcome is not “giving up”.
I love this number. I love the Habs in the Playoffs. It sickens me that we may not make it after a season where we proved most of the preseason predictions wrong.
My point was: math holds out longer than hope.
The math is still there. YES! We can still make the playoffs. And I get you. I’m not “Willy-nilly” with my fandom. But I’ve been doing this long enough to know that it doesn’t look good
The math might be sound as far as the Magic Number goes but a lot of other ones go the other way.
We’ve just sucked lately during a time when we should’ve been making the most of opportunities. I’m not going to give you the stats, others have thrown them around in their deeper analysis in other threads, but just because I’m showing the fatigue of calculating our Team’s losses doesn’t mean I’m giving up hope.
Besides: I’d love to be wrong.
