Default Reality

In the last 10 seasons, only 4 teams made the playoffs that were 5 or more points out of eighth place on December 20.

Yulp. And before the fourth one did it, there were only three. Before the third one did it, there were only two. And before the second one did it, there was only one. That first club was just a bunch of polyanna dimwits with the rose-colored glasses blinding them from the Truth. Logically they should've given up any playoff hopes, but somebody dropped the ball and forgot to tell these teams about the "reality" that they couldn't do it. Tsk tsk.

All 62 teams in the past ten years that have been in our position or worse on Dec. 20 had a GM at the time.

And, *ahem* most importantly, none of them was SFY.

No predictions or spin intended. Just a few facts for the pollyannas and chicken littles to temper their views.

And I 100% think the 2011-12 Bolts will do it, too. (As long as SFY considers us a buyer and not a seller when it becomes easier to make a deal in a few weeks...) I think this team is capable of getting a bit of momentum and is SFY can add a D-man that we need, we can definitely make a good playoff push.

That's a really arbitrary date & # of points to pick, though I guess it's the day he published the article.


We were out by 4 points Dec. 31, 2003 (and the Thrashers were leading the Division), worked out pretty well.

And they said it was impossible to hit a target less than 2 meters in an X Wing. And Luke Skywalker did it....WITHOUT his targeting computer. That reality enough for you?

But seriously, it will be hard. It can be done though.

So, making the playoffs is as simple as blasting womp rats in a T-16 from two meters?

Awesome.
