Why even play the games?

The nerds behind the PC game Eastside Hockey Manager simulated all the NHL games for the coming season and came to a startling realization: the Ottawa Senators are gonna suck, bad.

Their simulation saw the Sens (as well as the Leafs, Oilers, and Canucks) miss the playoffs. Yikes. If I took these things seriously I might be concerned, but when I read that they also had the Chicago Blackhawks finish 3rd in the Western Conference.

If the Hawks win their division, I'll get my Werner Herzog on and eat my shoe. Seriously.
