Notable teams currently out of a playoff spot.
Detroit Red Wings
New York Rangers
By this logic, all of these teams are damned to having a terrible season, here's what I think we should do.
1) Watch hockey.
2) Repeat step 1 until 15-20 games into the season.
3) Use logic and see how teams are REALLY going to play the rest of the season after they actually play some hockey, get their bearings together from not playing in the NHL for so long, some not playing any hockey at all in 9 months, no preseason, and minimal training camps.
I've mentioned this before, look at the standings as we are 3 games into the season. The Flyers, Rangers, Canucks will in no way finish in the bottom of their respective conferences as they sit now, because determining the layout and future of a team this soon into the season is ridiculous. I'm not sure why this isn't understood better. This isn't the NFL where we play a dozen and a half games and even in a shortened season, starting 1-2-0 doesn't spell catastrophic scenario in my mind.
4) Make trades on NHL13
