There’s No Such Thing as an “Unthinkable Collapse”

From Matthew Sekeres at the Globe & Mail,

The Canucks face the Minnesota Wild at GM Place on Friday night in a showdown for the Northwest Division lead. But for the moment, more important than the head-to-head race with Minnesota, is the distance between Vancouver and the playoff bubble.

With a win tonight, the Canucks would move eight points clear of a post-season berth – a Good Friday, indeed. It would take an unthinkable collapse to blow such a lead with just seven games remaining.

Of course, the Canucks don’t yet see it that way.

Nor does any Canucks fan with an IQ over 35 and a memory that extends beyond the last game.  Or even the last period.  Vancouver isn’t safely in the playoffs till they’re doing warmups for Game #1.

Believing otherwise is just begging for trouble.
