I'm not following you on the rest of the post. How does that scenario not apply?
The 107 point pace number comes from the fact that over the last 5 years or so, it's taken 92 points, at the lowest, to make the playoffs. In a 48 game season, that's 54 points. To get to that 54 point mark, the Caps would have to play at a 107 point pace over the rest of the season

That scenario doesn't apply because it's not considering the same time period. The first three consider from now to the end of the season. That one takes it 3 months further (at least) to the beginning of next season. It's not comparable.
