has there divisional winner ever had fewer pts than the 9th place team?
I don't remember if it ever happened, but this year could be the year it does!
Right now, the Rangers are just outside the playoffs and technically, they could be 9th with more points than the SE leader. If Carolina and Winnipeg lose their next 1-2 games and the Rangers win tomorrow, this exact situation would occur.
Why trade the player that carries the habs? It's his fighting that has us in 1st place. Plekanec would have no heart without him and Desharnais would no longer be 6'4.
Yeah but if Desharnais play like a 5'5, he will be more difficult to stop and will make more goals!!!! Blackhawks should trade Bollig, Brookbank, Carcillo, Mayers and Shaw. Without them. they would be like the next great thing you know.
IF his contract wasn't so expensive and we had an open roster spot, I would have actually considered him. Markov made him look great, no reason that couldn't in theory happen again. That being said, Hell nah, enjoy long island
