I know I never had any faith in the Panthers (never understood all the expectations the last few years) but I still expected they would push the Leafs out. It really doesn't matter, I guess, because neither one will advance over Boston or Tampa, but this lack of a push from them is making it ready for the Islanders to suck all the way to the playoffs.
Really good post that completely disregards and discredits the NYI being tied for 7th overall in the league on February 12th.
I don't give a sh*t where they were Feb. 12. I only care because we got their 1st this season and were not anywhere near a solid playoffs position at the time. Then they proceed to get just 2 loser points over the next 5 games and somehow the teams behind them collectively decided to also lay an egg.
It is 100% true that Florida has been very disappointing recently. It is 100% true that after that emotional win with Ayers in his the Canes have played some uninspired hockey.
Leafs and Isles have been very fortunate. Am I not allowed to wish some misfortune on them? Just eff off, ok?
