If the team can get the top two lines going AT THE SAME TIME during the playoffs, this team will be nigh-unstoppable. Remember that the team's record has been below-standard because of all the injuries. During that period, the team had to learn to scrap and to scrape for points, and that did wonders for character-building and hard work. The team is needing to fight for a playoff spot, and that means they'll still have momentum when heading into the playoffs. And this is a team that recently got its prime roster back and is now tearing up the teams they're playing against.
And, finally, they're led by the best coach in the league; they've got one of the best offensive coordinators in Paul McLean; and Brad McCrimmon seems to have improved tremendously.
I've got a lot of hope for this team's chances in the playoffs.
