Riemy had a stellar .840 tonight against a bottom feeder and 5 goals against. This isn't the only stinker he has had the past couple of weeks.
Hopefully people will start to see through the reality distortion field that is FordLand (the fans here are walking around in a daze just dreaming of the playoffs) and realize the Laughs have a long ways to go before they can be called a contender or even a dark horse upsetter.)
I thought prior to the shortened season starting that Toronto and Edmonton would be the two teams to most benefit from a shortened season. Toronto has the worst shots differential of any playoff team in history, but (like in years past) get the bounces early on, and then start to fade massively from the 35-game mark. Fortunately there wasn't enough time for them to totally drop off.
Edmonton did benefit from the short season - they had their best finish in years!! Still a ~10% chance at 1st overall too.
Minnesota would have been in that conversation too of teams to benefit from a short year, but they overhauled their roster so drastically I wouldn't include them in that category. They may very well have dropped out of the playoffs in a full season though.
