Our calendar since then :

March 27th : Boston 3 - 2 Montreal (in OT) = 1 point
March 31st : NYIslanders 5 - 1 Montreal = 0 point
April 1st : Philadelphia 2 - 0 Motnreal = 0 point
For a grand total of 1 point out of 10. We could have got 9 pts more. We now have 91 pts. We could have 100 pts now if we had won all our games. And if we win tomorrow we could have had 102 pts. So it's falso to say we could have ended the season with 103 pts. It's also false to say we could have drafted 29th overall. Both Detroit and TB have more points than 102.
I overlooked the point for the OT loss. Whatever. The whole concept is quite speculative. Only point that I'm making is that a 6 game losing streak to end the season vs. a 6 game winning streak to end the season is going to make a huge difference in where they draft this summer. Probably 10 spots at least.
