Chicago I think has the 2nd toughest schedule (well maybe we do, but I guess that not the point). I can see a possibility of them not making it in.
While it is theoretically possible to get to 4th I think we'd need to win out and hope for some luck. 5th is possible, but 6th is realistic... Frankly I'm not sure seeds really matter this year. All top 8 teams look ridiculously dangerous to play (including Nashville and Phoenix). Kings may be a lame duck because of injuries.
The thing is, depending on how WE play our last few games, we may need to rely on Dallas losing big. It's hard to see a scenario where we DON'T make the playoffs, but if we tank and Dallas rides it home, we're in trouble.
