IIRC, there was a point last year where Phoenix was 5th or 6th in the conference.
If they can ignore the cluster Diddle surrounding the team, they can be a playoff team.
Then the playoffs are a horse of a different colour.
Dallas has more offense, a better defense, and better goaltending. Bryz isnt anything special at all, one of the most inconsistant goaltenders in the league and Montoya isnt going to be turning any heads.
There was a point when Pittsberg was out of the playoffs last year too, late into the season, well, they won the cup. Pheonix finished right where the should have and probably right where they wlll again this year. There really isnt a team in the west I can say for sure Phenoix is better than, not one.
