Del Zotto is such a terrible hockey player, I was absolutely right for not wanting this guy. He's a slower better talented version of Hunwick, but the facepalms still float around when he tries to play defense, LOL.
Carolina is still too close for my liking. Need them to win tomorrow.
Yup. The goal has to be finishing 2nd to last. That guarantees you one of Mac, Jones , Drouin. Would be huge.
If Carolina wins one of their next 2 it will be awfully hard to pass them (But we will find a way ).
Good thing is that everyone besides NSH and FLA has the tiebreaker on us (ROW).
If we go 2 - 2 we probably will finish 27th at best because TBL and CAR have to play each other.
NSH would have to go 0-4 in order to pass them.
The ideal scenario is probably to lose the next 2 (maybe 3 if CAR, TBL or NSH goes into hardcore tank mode) and than win a game or two to finish off the season.
FLA is probably out of reach.
I expect St Louis to really take it to the Avs this next game because of the Tarasenko incident. The Avs might respond on Tuesday. We never seem beat Phoenix and Minnesota is a division game. If the Avs get 4 points I will be surprised.
