So sick of this team blowing leads. We were LUCKY to come away with a win last night.

Ultimately, event the most positive Preds fans have to realize that we are not a playoff team. Just look at the teams ahead of us.
1 Colorado 13 12 1 0 12 24 42 19 6-1-0 6-0-0 9-1-0 Won 6
2 San Jose 14 10 1 3 9 23 53 27 5-0-1 5-1-2 6-1-3 OT 2
3 Anaheim 15 11 3 1 10 23 50 39 5-0-0 6-3-1 7-2-1 Won 1

9 Minnesota 14 7 4 3 7 17 34 34 5-1-2 2-3-1 6-3-1 Won 1
10 Nashville 14 7 5 2 7 16 31 40 4-2-1 3-3-1 6-2-2 Won 1
11 Calgary 13 5 6 2 5 12 39 47 3-2-1 2-4-1 4-6-0 Lost 2
12 Dallas 13 5 6 2 4 12 33 39 3-1-2 2-5-0 3-5-2 OT 1
13 Winnipeg 15 5 8 2 3 12 35 45 3-5-1 2-3-1 3-5-2 Lost 3
14 Edmonton 15 3 10 2 2 8 36 59 1-5-0 2-5-2 2-7-1 Lost 2

Minnesota is probably even with us, but there isn't a single team ahead of us currently in a playoff position that I don't think is significantly better than our squad this year, even with Rinne. Also, the goal differential. We have to lowest scoring offense in the West with the a grand total of 1 win against Western playoffs teams (two wins against Eastern playoff teams, but right now the East is a cake walk). We have also been outscored 23-13 by those teams.

None of those top 8 teams are missing the playoffs.
I'd be more disturbed by the goal differential if it wasn't the direct result of 2 blowup games.

It will be tough to make the playoffs, and I've thought that since before the season started. If we make it, the team truly earned a birth and the young players made some great strides to help get us there. If we don't, then we have a top 15, probably top 10 draft pick...I'm ok with that.
