For New York It's Game By Game

Long story short, getting 29/30 points is incredible, historic. 1982 was a different time/league. A regulation streak without overtime, a standing record to this day. That team was under zero pressure in a twenty one team league, where sixteen qualified, their playoff spot was secured.
Bottom line coach has hardly been thrilled, but it's a game by game process, which is the path I'm taking. No one makes playoffs before thanksgiving.

We know the math, what it takes to qualify, how tough it was last season never losing more than two in a row in regulation, so the enthusiasm has to be tempered, this is not a team doing this in March, it's how you give yourself a chance to make the playoffs. For now, that's the goal, it's not being a downer, or writing people should not be thrilled.

Lesson was learned the hard way in 2017-18 at eight over around this time, they have the right system, coaching, culture, and character to avoid what happened then. This team also has a defense that can skate, all at the right age, and improving. Toews is a special talent, as is Pulock, and many of them are just hitting their prime. Even Leddy for his mileage is young, and can fly.
So far still working on, Noah Dobson, in the home blue wearing #8, so with team going on the road will stick with that for the time being.
