Poll: How do you feel about the Devils' Playoffs Chances Now?




Here's a poll for you all and it's my first one since joining the site, so I hope it sparks some interest:

Now that our streak has continued and the Devils' confidence seems to rise every game from a level that was seemingly already at its pinnacle the game before, things are looking better, right?  Ok, how about this: we're only 10 points out of 8th place with 23 games left.  Wait!  We're also on a 7 game winning streak.  Wait, this statistic says far more than a 7 game winning streak: we're 15-1-2 in our last 18 games (seriously, holy hell that's incredible)!  It's incredible: one regulation loss in 18 games....is that some kind of record?  That's not a rhetorical question, as I have no idea.

Just a few games ago, I still believed the Devils' playoff obstacles were insurmountable, but my view has changed in literally a matter of days.  I consider myself a realist and pragmatist and try as hard as I can to be honest with myself.  I tend to be the pessimistic, cynical sort.  Now, I think I'm being honest when I say that the team we've been seeing on the ice can make up 10 points in 23 games.  I really do.  Is it still a long shot?  Maybe.  But just a few games ago, it still looked hopeless in my eyes.  Now it looks like a real possibility. 

So what do you think?  Please vote to tell everybody how you're feeling about our team right now and what you think about the Devils' chances for making what may be one of the greatest comebacks in sports history.  I also encourage you to tell your fellow Devils and In Lou We Trust fans about how you voted and why you feel the way you do.  Finally, I encourage people to comment on the contingencies on which you think our chances might depend, and whether or not you still think we should be buyers/sellers after seeing these statistics and watching the last few games.  While we have had discussions about the buyer/seller issue quite recently, the fact that we have beaten Carolina 3 times in the past 2 weeks (which basically means gaining 12 points on them, not 6!) has seriously changed the look of the road ahead, so I think it's safe to say that some people who may have previously thought the Devils should sell might be reevaluating their opinions.  Speak your minds fans!

EDIT: I'd just like to add a few more statistics that might help you in making your decision.  We have 1 game in hand on Carolina, who has 64 points and is in the 8th spot.  Both Bufallo and Atlanta have 60 points, but we have 1 game in hand on the former and the latter has 1 game in hand on us.  Both Buffalo and Atlanta are on 3 game losing streaks, and Carolina is only on a 1 game losing streak (losing their last game to us).  Hope these help.
