It really does take an informed hockey fan to know that there are three seasons in hockey...
Correct. I have every confidence that this team will excel in the playoffs. I don't care a single bit about the possibility of disappointment. Apparently the latter is not true of you.
Just because a team dominates in the preseason doesn't mean that they will have a great regular season or the opposite happens.
Just because a team has a difficult portion of the regular season, but still makes the playoffs, doesn't mean that they are going to fail in the playoffs. Look at countless 7 or 8 seeded teams who beat top seeded teams. Montreal last year? Philadelphia who got in on the last shootout of the season last season? They played lazy, but still got in and then made it to the cup finals and the conference finals. How did that happen? Pure luck?
The playoffs are all that matters, and in this day and age of parity in the NHL, anyone can win.
The Wings are going for a deep run into the playoffs.
