You prick, take that back! (you are right though)

Hey, every team that perennially underachieves should be salivating at the thought of the short season. Toronto is one team, but Montreal if Price plays great, Calgary's older squad, and Anaheim with all their supposed firepower are other examples.

We that support teams that have been better and more successful in the last few years are the ones that should worry, because even missing the playoffs in a short year will probably invite big changes in the off-season, and I don't think that should be the thought process when you're only playing 48 games instead of 82.
