3. Anaheim is in deep trouble without Hiller (vertigo).
4. Calgary is artificially high in the standings.
5. You have Rinne.

Assuming the law of averages comes through yet again, you're making the playoffs. You're effectively in 8th already if you look at points blown vs. points earned, which makes the standings far easier to digest: http://www.jewelsfromthecrown.com/20...real-standings

You just need to win your share of games... Calgary will fall to 9th soon enough and Dallas will likely fall further as well. Stay ahead of Anaheim and you're golden.
Exactly. At this point, I think we have an excellent shot to make the playoffs. Advancing past the first round is another story of course, but barring a collapse from us, I say we're in. Probably in the 7th or 8th spot, but I feel pretty confident that we'll be there.
