    Playoffs, points and more...

    Stardate 7389.44

    With only 2 games left against 2 teams they are competing against, the Habs face the reality of having to beat both the Rangers and Toronto in their last match. I think one if not both games ending in losses could mean curtains for their chances.

    This is an interesting thought however. For a long time, I have hated the extra point for a shoot out loss. I am mixed about the shootout, and I realise that if they didn't have a shootout, there would be ties, where both teams get a single point. But now, you get a point for LOSING the game in a shootout. Looking at this, and the records of teams such as Montreal and Toronto, we can see how the Habs have 6 points from these losses, and the Leafs have a whopping 11 points. By season's end, Toronto could pass Montreal and make the playoffs based on these losing points being awarded. In other words, a team with an under .500 record could be in, and a team with an over .500 record could be out. This isn't right in my opinion...

    In other news, last year's Stanley Cup champs, the Carolina Hurricanes were eliminated from contention yesterday, marking the first time in history that both teams that went to the finals failed to make the playoffs the following year. Way to go guys!!! I don't think they realise the humour in the ad on their website today either....

    Seeya is right!
