Record doesn't matter if you win the division. Canucks will be picking 25th. The only way that changes is if Anaheim and Pittsburgh somehow lose their series' that they are both currently up 3-2 in. I don't see that happening. IF it did, we'd move up to 23rd.
If any of Anaheim, Chicago, or Pittsburgh lose in the 2nd round we'd move up as well.
