Flying_Lion Posted April 4, 2009 Report Share Posted April 4, 2009 If we're strictly talking about points here, 95 wouldn't necessarily cut it. If Florida and Buffalo win the rest of their games this season, their records would look like: Florida - 95pts (42-29-11) Buffalo - 95pts (43-30-9) If we only make 95pts, best case our record is 42-29-11. Worst case our record is 40-27-15. I was just going to point out the same thing. The most important thing to keep in mind is that we're in the driver's seat. If we win our own games, which is all we have control over, than all of this number crunching is pointless. We've been gifted with a huge opportunity to get closer to sealing the deal but Toronto is the last team that wants to contribute to our success. Whoever posted earlier about Wilson's ability to get performance out of these Leafs is absolutely right. Any coach can use the Habs/Leafs rivalry as a motivator but I bet Wilson can use it to draw blood from a hockey puck. On top of that, the Leafs are not only a team that is in an explicit rebuilding phase but they're a team made up of individuals that are fighting to be a part of that rebuilding. I said this earlier and I think it's worth mentioning again: their is nothing so dangerous as a team with nothing to lose and something to prove. 3 nothing. 4 nothing. 5 nothing. It doesn't matter. Don't take your skate off their throats. GO HABS GO!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
