I think they will.

One team I expect to start pulling away soon is the Blues. If they can keep winning on the road, they'll get their act together at home.

I'm still expecting to finish in the 6 to 10 range.

We may be catching a break with our Northwest conference swing. That conference sucks this year.
All of this is exactly part of the NHL's master plan. More teams in the playoff hunt mean more fans in more cities care down the stretch. It also gives bubble teams a better chance of getting into the playoffs and spurring a fanbase who may not see many to hit some playoff games.

It's kind of a huge downer for Detroit, but for the rest of the league it's certainly creating some better drama.
