Colorado, I actually think they have the best team depth. Not that I have given this much thought.

Coyotes are the best coached team and play the best defensively. They get in.

I'll give the edge to Dallas, but I think Colorado will make things interesting.

With the way the Wild has been playing lately, they have a higher probability of being a lottery team than making the playoffs.

1st in the league to 1 point of missing the playoffs in a month's span.

They have 38 games left. They'd have to win 29(or win almost 29 and OT lose a few) of them just to get to 95 pts.

I'm betting the cut off in the West is no lower than 93.

It's not impossible but they'll basically have win 3 games for every loss.

I'm going to say Colorado, although it's a real crapshoot.

Really tough one to call I think, honestly I dont know. I picked Dallas but who knows, it should be exciting though.

I'd say Dallas.

No way the Wild finish 8th if the injuries keep happening.

If the Wild get healthy I expect them to make a run and take it.

Isn't Koivu out for a while for Minnesota? If he is, we can safely rule out the Wild. If he isn't, I still think Phoenix takes it. Their edge in coaching is immense.

I want Dallas to be in a playoff spot, if all they can get is 8th, so be it. If Detroit's still 1st it'd probably be a good series.

I'll go with either Dallas or Pheonix. Colorado has an outside chance at it. We're done though. Too many injuries and a crap roster. We've only won 2 of our last 16 games for pete's sake.

I won't bet against the Coyotes. I think it will be the Coyotes or the Stars.

I don't think Anaheim will make it, but will they keep Dallas or Phoenix out of the playoffs?

They have three games remaining against Dallas and two against Phoenix.

I'm definitely a homer, but I see Colorado. When Duchene comes back our team should be great (very inconsistent though)

Your guess is as good as mine, which is mainly motivated by who I would want to make it.
