I'm not sure. I didn't think they'd make it but now i'm wondering if they might.

As of right now, probably not. While Trotz will help, I think the rest of the division is still to good. But I'm still hoping a few more moves to be made this summer, so I hope for the best.

It all comes down to two things: how much can Trotz change the team defensive habits and how good will Lehner be. I think many under estimate how much talent up front there really is. if the team can execute Trotz's defensive system well, and Lehner plays like he did 2 years ago this team could make the playoffs

Really? I can't see them making the playoffs yet ... they lost JT. Maybe in a few years.

so what? offense isn't the issue hasn"t been the issue never was the issue. with Tavares, without Taveres, doesn't matter, there is enough fire power up front either way. it all depends on how many goals they can keep out of their net. that depends on system and goaltending. if those two things work out, they can make the playoffs.

The goaltending is better, but the defence has not improved ... i mean you never know, lower expectations ... maybe they're ready to show fans they're wrong ... I can be as optimistic as i can, and still not have either of my teams making the playoffs.

99.99 percent of the defensive problems of this team last year and for the last 5 years, has had nothing to do with actual personnel

Who do they beat out to make the playoffs. Probably just four teams in the Metro make the playoffs with improved Panthers makes it four teams in the Atlantic, Caps. Pens, CBJ. then Philly, NYD. Can Isle become # 4 team? Nope.

I mean Florida might miss ... and then maybe one of PHI and NJD misses. But the one spot left would probably go to Carolina.

I have Tampa, Toronto, Boston, Florida, Washington, Pittsburgh, Philly, and Columbus making it.

you and I agree. lets's forget the regular and go straight to the playoffs. a best of 21. four rounds or eight two games.
