Phoenix or Vancouver tonight?

Who will you be rooting for? Phoenix winning tonight and moving up could threaten our playoff spot and Vancouver winning tonight could make it harder for the Wild to secure a division title this year.

As much as I hate to say this, I went with Vancouver. Let's try to make the playoffs before talking about a division title.

This one is hard to say. If your goal is to win the NW, then you root for Phoenix. But if Phoenix wins, they are nipping at the Wild's heels.

So, I'm just going to hope that this one doesn't go to OT. That would be the worst scenario of all.

Well the obvious answer is bacon. As to the other question I am rooting for the Yotes in this one. I have faith that the Wild will take care of business and I think the Wild should push for the division championship.

I thought the same thing this morning. I won't root for Vancouver but I'd like to see Coyotes lose. So Bacon it is.

Phoenix all the way. They'll find a way to **** it up, and we want that title.

Last Northwest title. I hope Vancouver loses more in one of those rare reverse-tie games that nets only one team one point, and that one team isn't Vancouver.

I am pulling for the Yotes. If the Wild cant hold a 6 point lead with 10 games to play, then the playoffs are probably pointless anyway. Not to mention that I want to see somebody knock the wings out of the playoffs.

Go Yotes!
How the hell are they nipping at our heels? They were on a 7 game losing streak when we were on a 7 game win streak.
****, things change quickly.

There's only one answer: hot, crispy Bacon

And I hope hope the Yotes win too.

Not difficult in the slightest...Phoenix.

Only 2 pts out of the division lead i could not even fathom cheering for less than that.

I'm sorry, but the Wild do not need to worry about the Yotes guys...at all. They're an unrealistic amount of points back to be made up in only 10 games. Vancouver needs to lose so the Wild can get the 3rd seed!

EDIT: To keep things in perspective guys...before the 8 game win streak, the Wild had a 2-4 point lead over 9th with games in hand.

After the 8 game win streak, they had a 6 point lead over 9th with a couple games in hand.

Now they have lost 4 of the last 6 and still have a 6 point lead and a 4 game edge in the ROW tie breaker.

10 games is just not enough for them to realistically fall out of the playoffs at this point.

Bacon.

But if I had to choose it would be Phoenix all the way.

I want that last NW title. And I hate Vancouver with a passion.

And if the Wild somehow blow it and the Yotes pass them, it's their own damned fault.

That's a very good way to look at it. We shouldn't have to rely on other teams. We should try to fight like heck to win that last NW title. I changed my mind. Initially I picked Vancouver just so we could get into the playoffs definitely. Nah, I don't want Vancouver to win so we can nab the title.

Why do I get the feeling that we'll soon have a poll asking what everyone had for breakfast?
Anyway, go Phoenix! I can almost never root for the Canucks. The only exception being when they play the Flyers.
