We may need to factor Detroit in now too. They simply haven't been that good.
Let's face it, our schedule is beyond ugly. Our only "easy" game left is at Colorado. If we can hold ourselves in a playoff spot over the next 5 games, we have the 6 game road trip from hell coming up after that with the last game of the season, at home, against Nashville.

Maybe we can say that about Detroit, maybe not. For not being all that good, they are still 7-5-1 in March. If they somehow lose to Colorado, they could be vulnerable. I guess everyone starts to look bad when you have a 10-2-3 month (23 of 30 points). That is amazing and it took that to even get us to faint hope for the 8th spot.

Beyond our schedule we have a huge regulation win issue. We probably lose every tie breaker known to man. Interesting thing to note, had we won a couple more shoot outs we would have been in far better position.

If this team qualifies for post season, it will be a true miracle. Almost everything is working against them.
