How is that over achieving unless the expectation was to be dead last in the entire league. Rebuild does not mean bottom out - when the Ice Dogs won their first Conference championship they easily made the playoffs the next year. Being in 9th place in the 10 team Eastern Conference in a year where many say the Eastern Conference is the weakest in history is not over achieving.
The fact that a team with double digit number of rookies already has more wins (16W and 8 T) after 50 games than were expected to have after 68 games is by definition “over-achieving: do better than is expected.”!

…and it is impossible to overlook the fact that the Ice Dogs’ compete level is extraordinarily high - 18 one goal loses is nothing short of amazing!
