Northeast Division

We are currently 8 points behind the Bruins and 3 points behind Ottawa for second. If we win tonight (currently 2-0 after 1) we could be only 6 points behind boston, but 2 games in hand. Normally we are at the bottom of the Conference this time of year and we have to make ground on 10-12 points and normally finish 2-4 points out. This year do you think we could achieve the same sucess but chase down the bruins for top of our divison. Its a crazy thing to think, but there is a ton of hockey left. But 6 points seems to be nothing for us looking at the past 3 years. Im not saying we will or anything, and ill be happy to just be in a playoff spot, but if we make a good run for it, we can over take our division.

Possible, but unlikely. Lets just get into the playoffs and go from there.

this makes it sound like the Leafs have 2 games in hand when it's actually the opposite.

No. At best we finish 6th. Which IMO might be better. Who would you like to face? Ottawa/Florida/NJ/Washington? For me, Florida or Ottawa but I see Ottawa missing the playoffs. Florida could win the division and sit 3rd, and could be the weakest playoff team. or we could face the Caps, worst case at 6th, who have Semin (like 0 or maybe 1 goal his past 14 playoff games) who disappears like no other and look weak outside of MAYBE Ovechkin. I duno, I actually might rather 6th than win the division.

i'm expecting 2nd in div/6th in conference, but we won't be near Boston this year. next season is when i'm hoping to challenge for the division title, and I'm excited about that; I think it means a lot more to me then most fans.

if they finish 6th there is no way they could play Ottawa. not sure what you're thinking here. unless you mean Fla/Wash, which makes sense. there is no way in hell they play Ottawa unless it's in the conference finals

they will have done well for themselves if they make it into the playoffs without seeing boston in the first round.
