We have three games before the deadline. The outcome of those games could greatly affect what happens trade-wise. We also seem to be getting a lot of help in the standings from other teams beating Carolina, etc..

Carolina, Tampa Bay, and Washington all have 31-32 points. All it takes is for one of them to get real hot. Washington looks like the most likely. However we're 7 points ahead, it would be very hard for them to catch us.

Our schedule is also very easy. Only 13 games left, and only 5 are against teams currently in the playoffs. Montreal is the very last game, and they could not dress a lot of key guys to save them for the playoffs. Also only 5 are on the road. There's two back to backs and they're both on the road.

This is a totally different situation compared to last year around deadline time. We were teetering between 8-10 place, and other teams always had games at hand. Our schedule also wasn't very good, lots of tough teams and on the road.
