Let's assume that, until the Hawks start losing some games in regulation at any point this season, the Central Division is in their hands. That means the Blues are in a race for the 4th playoff seed. Where do things stand?

4. Blues +4, 15GP, 7ROW
5. Nashville +4, 15GP, 5ROW
6. San Jose +3, 14GP, 5ROW
7. Edmonton +1, 14GP, 5ROW
8. Phoenix +1, 15GP, 6ROW ... -1 goal diff
9. Detroit +1, 15GP, 6ROW ... -4 goal diff
10. Minnesota +1, 15GP, 5ROW
11. Dallas +1, 16GP, 7ROW
12. Calgary 0, 13GP, 5ROW
13. LA -1, 13GP, 4ROW
14. Colorado -2, 13GP, 4ROW
15. Columbus -5, 15GP, 3ROW

Getting to +6 and finishing this shortened season at that mark is like having the league-wide established average of 92 points in a normal season, to put things in perspective. +9 is like having a bit over 97 points in a normal season and that total has never missed the playoffs in NHL history.
