If you are a Caps fan...or perhaps a player or a member of the staff...being 30th in the league and looking up at 14 other teams in your conference might look pretty daunting.
Well, your old pal, The Peerless has a thought for you...think of it in "chewable bites." There are 20 weeks remaining in the season until the season-ender against Florida. The Caps -- 6-12-1 at the moment -- are six points below .500. If the Caps are one-point better than .500 a week -- one thin point -- they will finish the season 14 points above .500...96 points.
You do think 96 points will get the boys into the playoffs, don't you?
