Nashville 9-9-5 23
Colorado 8-10-4 20

They're changing the playoff qualification format. Top 3 in each of the four divisions make it in, and then there are 2 wildcards per conference (two teams with most points outside of divisional top 3's). No crossovers.

So right now the Top 3 in the Midwest are Chicago, St. Louis and Minnesota, Top 3 in the Pacific are Anaheim, Vancouver and LA and the Wildcards are San Jose and Phoenix.

The East would have Montreal, Boston and Toronto as Top 3 in the Central, and Pittsburgh, Carolina and NJ as Top 3 in the Atlantic. The Wildcards would be Ottawa and Detroit.

In this scenario the Wildcards account for one division in each conference sending 5 teams to the playoffs (Pacific sends ANA, VAN, LAK, SJS and PHO; Central sends MTL, BOS, TOR, OTT, DET).
Thanks for this Gm0ney!
Thought I'd add Fenwick, just to show how teams compare 5v5 if you remove goaltending

CHI 03 55.31 58.18 52.76
STL 04 55.11 55.13 55.09
DAL 13 51.03 49.53 52.43
WPG 14 50.93 50.19 51.72
COL 22 47.60 50.96 45.42
MIN 24 45.90 51.35 39.17
NSH 25 45.65 48.22 43.05
Data as of Mar 7, 3:30 AM
Close means when the game is within 2 pts

Be interesting who gets hurt more. Us without the soft SE or Minnie without the soft NW... my guess is Minnie... as they haven't really been that great outside of their top pair D and goaltending... but who knows.

Looks like we're a bubble team again boys!
