I don't know how any site could do this since we don't know the point threshold required to get in.

IMO, 54 looks like a good bet to get an 8 seed. That's the same as 92 in an ordinary 82-game season.

If we safely grant CHI, ANA, MIN, VAN and LA a playoff berth, then the remaining teams are on pace for:

6. San Jose 56
7. Detroit 53
8. St. Louis 52
9. Dallas 49
10. Edmonton 49
11. Columbus 49 (but remember, they're "ahead" of us )
12. Nashville 48
13. Phoenix 47
14. Calgary 44
15. Colorado 40

Realistically, as one or two teams make a big push those numbers on the playoff cusp will inflate slightly. 54 points for the Blues means 18 points in 15 games, things like 9-6-0 or 8-5-2 or 7-4-3. If 52 points gets you in, that's way easier. 8-7-0 or 7-6-2 or 6-5-4.
