Ugh. Why bother arguing.
Come Christmas, you post your list of all the playoff teams. Then, come April, we'll review.
Not for the purposes of assigning playoff positions, but for the purposes of deciding who will be selling and who will be buying.
There will still be some teams on the bubble all the way until the deadline but, in general, by Christmas we *should* know if the Sens are a playoff team or not -- with reasonable certainty (which is another way of saying "uncertainty").
