Damn you, Math! Why won't you just put us out of our misery already!?!?
According to the Globe and Mail, the Thrashers are still not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.
Based on their prediction that it will take 88 points to get into the playoffs in the East, the Thrashers must accumulate 21 of their remaining potential 28 points. That means that in the next 14 games, they must win 10 and go to overtime in one of the other four.
Four regulation losses to go until we can stop talking about the Thrashers' playoff chances and abandon them for our fall back teams until Draft time.
