Lets assume the roster is roughly the same...

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
LeBlanc - Plekanec - Gionta
Moen - Eller - Bourque
White - Gomez - Staubitz

Markov - Subban
Emelim - Gorges
Kaberle - Weber

Now we look at the standings...

New York
Boston
Florida
Pittsburgh
Philadelphia
New Jersey
Ottawa
Washington
Buffalo
Winnipeg

If Washington actually cleans up its act and their players play to past standards, we are better than no one in the top eight. You could argue Ottawa or if Washington continues to struggle but this is a repeat of years past; 7-8th place slug fests as the season winds down. I want to see Montreal be a Pittsburgh or Philadelphia. No they may not have Crosby but we could find a Giroux and our chances increase significantly with a top three pick.
