taz and cam, i am pretty sure you're both screwed. kreller, you might have some shot at sneaking into the PIT... it is definitely the 4th season of 5 that makes it tough to get/stay on the list-- it is not too difficult to build a semi-lopsided team that goes PI/NT/NT/nothing, but then has to break that cycle next time around or they are back out on their ***.
Bri-- you have a solid team and a good shot to finally make some noise in the postseason. You will move up some just by getting there again, but to get towards the top you're gonna have to win some games. good luck.
as for me, the Hartwick dynasty seems to be waning as well. terrible postseasons the last 3 or 4 years, and this season we'll be in the little dance, meaning yet another drop in the standings. trying to decide which of my 4 teams to drop, and it is looking more and more like hartwick, who consistently underperforms my expectations. we'll see-- it is also my longest-held team, which makes it tough to quit.
