Hey, I realize that there is an "Around the League thread", but I think that it would be neat to have one devouted to JUST games and teams we're trying to catch up on.
We ALL don't want boston to have a bottom 5 pick.. I think it will be interesting to follow teams behind and just ahead of us.
Important Games: Thursday February 4th:
Dallas-Columbus ---> Dallas Must Win
Edmonton-Minnesota ---> Minnesota must win
Boston-Montreal ---> They're close, doesn't really matter. Just no Extra Time
Washington-NYR ---> Washington
NYI-Tampa Bay ---> They're close, doesn't really matter right now. Just no Extra time
Friday February 5th:
Toronto-New Jersey ---> Toronto Win
Atlanta-Washington ---> Washington win
Caronlina-Buffalo ---> Buffalo win
Calgary-Florida ---> Calgary Win
We all know we aren't getting a pick back however, is it so wrong to try and play them out of a top 5 pick? I know I'm interested in seeing it haha
The scary part is, with the freefall in Boston right now, they could very well get themselves a top 5 pick. That could potentially be 2 picks in the 1st round.
Please get desperate Boston! haha We don't need you having 2 high end picks.
It makes all the difference in the world since they're in the same confrence as us. We play them 6 times a year. Would you like them to get a possible PPG-100 Point player, or a 60 point player?
If they were a team in the western confrence, then it wouldn't be such a big deal.
Same division...and if Boston continues to struggle, they could have 2 lottery picks...
I hope EDM tanks, I would hate to see Boston pick top 3 with our pick.
And then at least Taylor Hall will play for a Canadian team.
