The truth is that either of you could be correct. I wouldn't be shocked if the Isles finished last overall again this year. I also wouldn't be shocked if the Isles were to make the playoffs this year.<quoted text>
I assume you wish to include Tampa as well. For the reasons mentioned, I do not see any of these teams except possibly Atlanta and Ottawa finishing worse than us.
I think the one thing that is definitely true is that we cannot be sure what to expect of this team this year.
