I believe in our boys until we are mathematically eliminated

No, you've confused possible and impossible. It is possible to make the playoffs. It is not realistic.

 

Don't bite on the semantics lure.

He hasn't done that for 95percent of the season. At a certain point your optimism is just plain ignorance. This team isn't going on a run.

 

I'm not being optimistic.  For the love of god.  I have never said we're gonna go on a run.  I never said we were gonna make the playoffs.  What I am saying is that it's still possible.

hehehe MB. You ARE being optimistic.

 

Any way, I don't believe they'll make it but I have hope. By Friday we'll know for sure. A 3.9% got us Larsson so why not a 20%+ chance?

Alright so im very very curious here... If you guys had to either

a) sit at a table with me for 2 hours and talk about Lou not trying hard enough to keep his players

Or

b) sit a a table with Mike Brown for 2 hours and talk about our chances of making the playoffs...

Theres no options to shoot yourself in the mouth with a shotgun... Its one or the other... What do you pick?

This team has had that old weird bent, where the hell did that fork come from in it for some time. The team battled really hard and their current record is if anything an example of overachieving, if you fully consider the roster and the goaltending situation. Hopefully, this off season they will get the much discussed offensive help they so desperately need.

As far as the playoff chance discussion, I will say I never thought I'd see a team down 3-0 in the series and down 3-0 in a game 4 to win that playoff series.

Do I think they have a chance? He'll no, but I didn't think the Flyers did either.

Slight, slight, chance. Just slight...

I'm not being blindly optimistic. I'm being realistic.

It's not realistic to expect 82 points to be enough points to make it in. Every team that has fewer than 90 points has to win more games before saying they're a playoff team. With that comes a possibility of any of those teams falling off the cliff just like Toronto.

The Rags, Flyers, Blue Jackets, Leafs, Wings, Caps have more winning to do before they can call themselves playoff teams. Any one of those teams can slump which would give an opening for any team outside looking in.

And if you think I'm being optimistic in any way, you've got me all wrong. I'm not saying we're gonna make the playoffs. I'm just saying there's a chance.

No I'm not being optimistic.  I'm just not being pessimistic either.  Your bottom sentence is exactly what I have been saying in this entire thread.

Wow...if there was ever a loaded question...

 

Seriously though, since you asked:

 

The only things I really fault you for are for bringing up and attacking Lou's MO more than you need to, either directly or indirectly, and not realizing that even the best GMs unfortunately don't see all of their moves work out year after year after year, regardless of their MOs...that's not saying everything Lou does can't ever be criticized, it's more saying that ANY GM who's been on the job as long as Lou has is eventually going to go through a less-fruitful stretch. I don't think you always express yourself exactly as you would like, which sometimes leads to communication breakdowns, but I attribute that more to a language barrier than anything else...English is clearly not your first language, and though your English is definitely pretty good, you post like a foreigner who hasn't grown up learning it, which means trying to say what you really mean in detail is probably difficult. But the one thing I'll say is, English issues aside, you have pretty clear stances, and at least when people are debating you, it tends to be about a particular topic where everyone has a pretty good idea exactly what your take is, even if people disagree with it.

 

But I'll take that everytime over:

 

No I'm not being optimistic.  I'm just not being pessimistic either.  Your bottom sentence is exactly what I have been saying in this entire thread.

 

Posts like this from MB always to lead to the same "debates" over and over again, but about the wrong things...there's never really a clear stand taken, and it leads to endless posts about semantics, shades of gray, playing both sides, etc.  DM84 pretty much nailed it a long time ago.  I don't get wrapped up in MB's whatever-you-want-to-call-it anymore (post-whoring, thread-clogging, etc), because he is clearly not going to take the advice he himself sought on how he can become a better and more likable poster, and will remain oblivious to the fact that his MO is detracting from what is otherwise a terrific board.

 

So short answer...I'll take the debate with you SD, at least it will be hockey-related and between two passionate fans who probably won't agree on at least half the topics, but will at least stay to the topics.

I'd pick you all day on that one. At least you have a stance on the issue, whether we agree or not. There's a give and take, and an expression of ideas. I'd take that anytime over this endless game of semantics.

I think we can all agree that we'd take Mike Brown over LucifersDog.

Poor fella.

Oh my GOD SatansDevils, that's someone I forgot about. Mike Brown is so much like SD except I'm pretty sure SD had a slight mental issue or something, or English wasn't his first language?
