Last season the teams with the lowest points that made the playoffs had 92 pts or 56% of available points. In a 48 game season that equates to 54 points. That equates to 14-5-1 record in their last 20 for the necessary 29 pts. Tim P said Eddie O. thought they would need 16 wins.

Their games:

1- NJD
2- at TBL
3- at Pens
4- NYR
5- NYI
6- Bos
7- Was
8- Mtl
9- at Tor
10- at Win
11- at NYI
12- Ott
13- at Buf
14- at Mtl
15- NYR
16- NJD
17- at Car
18- Bos
19- NYI
20- at Ott

NJD twice more. They are going to lose at least 1 of those.
Mtl twice more. They are going to lose at least 1 of those.
Bos twice more. They are going to lose at least 1 of those.
NYR twice more. They are going to lose at least 1 of those.
Ott twice more. They are going to lose at least 1 of those unless OTT goaltending folds.
at Tor, at TBL, at WIN, at Car. They are going to lose at least 1 of those, likely two.

That is at least the 6 loses that make it impossible to get 29 pts. The way this team is playing, I would prefer they just tank. The top three in this draft are all potential super stars.
