Predict the Jackets record at 12/31/11

Looking at the schedule the Jackets play 22 games between now and the end of the year. Tidbits to consider:

Rough Canadien road trip;
11-11 home and away;
and here is the most disturbing-of all upcoming opponents, the Blue Jackets lost to all but Montreal the last time they played!

What do you think?

I'll say 4-16-2 for 10 points and a whopping 17 total points by 12/31

I will be the optimist and say 8-12-2.

This team is too inconsistent at best lately at home and I honestly don't think they can suck as bad as they have been on the road this season....

that will give them 25 points by the new year. Still a complete joke though, the hole is way to big to dig our way out of.

I would be happy with anything better than 12-8-2 (+26) or anything worse than 6-14-2 (+14).

if we will win in another game we will have winning break and my tip is 6 winning games. Than we will be back and our confidence up...

The fact that this team needs a 10 game winning streak (counting the win last night) ONLY to get to .500 in December... well we know how likely this is

if they go: 8-2-1 and 8-2-1 they are at 19-16-3 aka .500

totally doable with this team

The more pertinent question is whether or not Howson makes a trade by then for a goalie.

If they play .500 hockey I will be happy. I am thinking they get 10 points out of it, though

We'll win the draft lottery and draft the next great defenseman?

I said at the beginning of the year that I thought It was likely that Curtis Sanford ends up playing more than 15 NHL games this season....

I think the price for a veteran in the trade market will ultimately be a price that Howson will not pay.

I used to be able to make educated guesses as to teams the CBJ could beat versus who they'd likely lose to regardless of how well they'd been playing.

This year...I've got nothing. A lot of it is going to ride on picking up a goalie and maybe some help on defense, assuming that the rumor to deal Vermette/Brass once Carter was healthy was legit.

My heart says that the CBJ beat the Caps on New Year's Eve to get above .500 for the first time this season: 18-17-3

My brain says that with a loss to the Caps, the Jackets go into the new year at 10-26-2.
