The G&M is projecting 52 points to make the PO`s, which means the Coyotes need to go 11-4-1 in their last 16 games to have a chance! Not likely.

To all of those potential purchasers out there, how does your marketing plan look for next year?

Mesa, I think you have the right idea, but the numbers are a little suspect. Right now, on April 2, they have 34 points and have played 35 games. Thus, 13 games left.
If G&M is right (I think 53 is more likely, but whatever, let's use 52), they need 18 pts in 13 games.
That would be 8-3-2 for example, or 9-4, or 7-1-4.

Not quite as extreme as you calculated, but still doubtful. Plus, they host LA tonight. Any points they lose to teams above them makes the job doubly harder. Lose tonight in regulation, and it gets down to 8-2-2 or 9-3 or 7-0-4. Tough.
