Dude, we are. We have been for a while!
Mr. 'Bit' called it January 21st when we bottomed at 5% odds
. It didn't improve since then.
Now we need roughly 45 points in 31 games. That means we need to get 1.451 points per game from this point. The Rangers so far have managed 1.408 and the Red Wings 1.365.
In other words, we need to be substantially better in those last 31 games than the best of the leagues have been so far.
I call that statistically eliminated.
It's weird. These days I cheer both when the Canadiens score (out of conditionning) and get excited when they get scored against (thinking about the draft). It's win-win, in a twisted way.
