<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>HatterTParty</b></div><div>Same as last year. I’m not antagonizing, I’m just being a realist. Hawks have plenty of inconsistent teams ahead of them, but there’s nothing they have this year that makes them too different from last year. Dach and boqvist are no where near to get them over the line, and getzlaf doesn’t change anything with our center core, just adds to their present problem. It just looks like they inevitably have to run out of gas. That’s fine though, get one more lottery pick in a very deep draft and try to round out the team!</div></div>
They are better then last year's record at this point, higher in the standings, and have been playing their best hockey recently. The division isn't as strong either and if you look at the schedule it is not a difficult one. There's no reason to thing, unless they regress, that they can't make the playoffs. They won't go far as they can't beat the top 10 teams consistently but unfortunately, these are professionals that aren't just going to mail it in. At this point it is 50/50 whether they make it. We'll know more by the TDL.
