If I'm reading this correctly, these ratings think the Rangers are a MUCH better team now than their points currently indicate. It has them finishing 5th in the East and 14th overall in the league (I'm looking at the Blue Predictor column). Thats probably just a little optimistic.
Just as I said last night in the GDT I thought that Carolina would have to drop out as well as Montreal for the Rangers to have a good shot at the playoffs and Ro's berthMeter confirms that. Right now the Rangers have a 38.7% shot to make the playoffs, and the Hurricanes have dropped dramatically to a 46.1% shot to make the playoffs after last night's game.
On the right hand bar are the projected standings. Right now the Rangers are projected to be out of the playoffs at the end of the season by 2 points, which actually isn't as bad as it looks right now (many people in the media, except for Pierre LeBrun perhaps, have already counted the Rangers out of the playoffs).
Also, it looks like OTL points will have an adverse affect on the Rangers chances to make the playoffs. If it was based solely on wins, the Rangers would have it a lot easier.
What do you guys think of the Rangers playoffs chances based on some of these numbers?
