Halfway through the season…

Last season, I did a post showing where everyone was after exactly half a season of play, 41 games.  I did it again this year.  I actually spent about 2 hours getting it all in order last week but kept forgetting to post it.  We’re not a few games past the mid-season point, but whatevs.  Here is what the standings looked like.

So there you have it.  Fun shit right?  Phew.

After 41 games, the Stars were 1 point (tehnically 2) out of a playoff spot, and that’s with their God awful start.  So looks like there IS a chance they can pull off a miracle of their own and get into the playoffs.  Keep your fingers crossed, Stars fans!
