Looks like Carolina is doing so, by benching skinner and ward. Maybe we should sit rinne AND weber.

Well I didn't realize that lol. My bad. I just assumed they were tanking as well.

How can canes not score with all that offense?!?! They may be a problem for getting high pick. Only teams I see us not getting less points than is Colorado, Florida and possibly canes.

What a season it has been when it's a shame if we beat Chicago.

And yes it will be a shame for sure.

My feeling is that FL will be 1, CAR 2, and the Preds 3 (before the lottery for the overall pick).

So at worst 4th if a team below us wins the lottery. Prob will have Barkov there?

So pretty much Drouin or Barkov at 3/4 with a slight chance at Mackinnon. I'll take it.

Yeah - and I know I didn't mention CO. I don't know why but I feel like they go on a bit of a run to end the season. Wishful thinking probably.

#1 jones .. #2/3 is a tossup depending on the team.. mackinnon or drouin... #4 definitely barkov..

this is how i see it going down excusing lottery winner..

#1 florida - seth jones

#2 colorado - jonathan drouin

#3 nashville - nathan mackinnon

** assuming we arent mediocre at tanking like everything else we do. so far so good.

Colorado will take Jones if they have the chance, but I agree that they will take Drouin over Mac.

you would have to think so assuming their positional needs. but some teams just take the BPA. i think its a toss up between the 2 so they go with their needs. ill be dancing if we get mackinnon too.

There's no guarantee we're going to finish "no lower" than 4th. In fact, fourth is looking like the best case, with Carolina's loss tonight.

Realistically, 6 or 7 is just as likely as 3 or 4 at this point.

As long as we don't dress Rinne for the Calgary game, I can see that too.

Maybe not, but Carolina probably isn't, either. Calgary's schedule is pretty tough as well.

yeah ive been looking other teams schedule as well. i think we get a #3 as long as we don't beat calgary and only win 1 of the 3 against chicago, detroit, or columbus. just better hope a team outside the top 3 doesn't win the lottery.

Sure, but I look at the roster we have against the teams left to play.

@CHI - L
CAL - W
@DET - L
@COL - L

Finishing with 40 pts I think gets the Preds into the top 3. We shall see.

Carolina's only got 36 points. If they match our record, they get 3.

37, they just lost in ot. If they match our record wouldn't they get fourth? because they have more wins then we do?

Yep. Canes have Philly, Tampa, Isle, Rangers, and Pitt. Can see them getting 2 wins there but it is a tough finish for them.

Who knows what will happen, but I sure like Carolina's chance to win better than ours. Just look at their lineup vs what we are throwing out there- we make them look like an all star team.........

I have never wanted you to be right more than I do here- problem is- for that to happen, we almost certainly will have to lose to Calgary in the home finale- can we do it??????????? (Man, what a screwed up season it is when we are hoping that we can lose to Calgary at home!!)

@drwpreds - if we lose to calgary at home, we have an awesome shot at #3! tampa and carolina play against each other... both have more ROW, so we have advantages against both. if we lose to calgary, we could afford to win 1 of the other 3 games and still finish below the flames! lose tomorrow and sit rinne against calgary and i think we have an awesome chance at mackinnon/drouin!

you guys are nuts if you don't think we trot rinne out there vs Calgary.

truth be told, anyone can still beat anyone in this league, even a team desperate like Detroit got waxed at Calgary. I hope we play hard, win all our games, and win the lottery
