SJ wins , splits with LA & Dallas give them 92 points.

LA sweeps Edmonton, beats Minn and splits with SJ gives them 96 points

Dallas splits with SJ, could lose to Vancouver, Nashville & St Louis 91 pts.

Phoenix loses to SJ, beats Jackets, Minnesota,Anaheim, and loses to St Louis. They wind up at 95 points.

Okay so maybe all that all of this "proves" is if form holds somewhat, LA will win division.

Might be too early to decide who to root for and when.
Fixed Phoenix and SJ point totals

Still a dogfight with Dallas having toughest road

Would also be nice to see the Blackhawks pick up a couple of points to get to 97 to pretty much give them 6th place.

Question: I was just reading that the draft order for playoff teams are determined by when they lose with the team with the worse record getting the better seed. It didn't say lower seed. Is this right?

No- That's what I get from reading Wikipedia

Here it is from NHL.com

The order of selection among the Member Clubs in each season shall be determined in the following manner:
A composite of all Member Clubs shall be prepared by placing:
i) First the Clubs which failed to qualify for the preceding playoffs in the order of points earned by each of them in the regular schedule of the preceding season starting with the Club having the lowest points total and followed by the Club having the next lowest points total, and so forth.
ii) The Clubs which participated in the preceding playoffs (but had not been ranked first in their respective Divisions and had not won the Stanley Cup that season) in order of points earned by each of them in the regular schedule of the preceding season starting with the Club having the lowest total points and followed by the Club having the next lowest total points, and so forth.
iii) The Clubs which had been ranked first in their Divisions during the next preceding season (but had not won the Stanley Cup that season) in the order of points earned by each of them in the regular schedule of the preceding season starting with the Club having the lowest total points and followed by the Club having the next lowest total points, and so forth.
iv) The Stanley Cup winner shall select last, thus, positioning all Clubs on the list.
