I'm surprised you put Tampa in there. Sure, they have the offense, but their defense and goaltending have been horrendous. They are dead last in the league in goals against. Their defense is waaaay to soft, gives up too many quality chances, and their aging/sub-par goalie tandem can't make up for it.
Matt Gilroy has been a leader on D for them this season. That's all that really needs to be said about the state of their D.
If anything, I would say Montreal or even the Islanders make a run for that 8th spot. I am absolutely salivating at the prospect of a NYI/NYR playoff matchup. It's been way to long. This rivalry needs a kick in the pants.
