Devils chances at playoffs - The Final Push - Points and Standings Discussion

It seems as though the devils have a rather nice schedule the rest of the season. What do u guys think their record would need to be in order for them to make the playoffs ?

No clue.


But If things continue the way they are, and no changes are made, it won't be a matter of how many points.....it will be a matter of not having ENOUGH points in the end.

It's typically taken 93-94 points, so we'd have to get some 32+ points over the final 23 games, which is something like a 116 point season pace...

Something like 14-5-4 and we'd *still* need a little help. For a team that's mustered all of *one* three game winning streak, the likelihood is pretty bleak.

Even if you consider the possibility that *all* 5 teams ahead of us for spots fall off their pace and we squeak in with 90 points, we'd still have to go something like 12-6-5

In other words, we're screwed.

88 points = 9.9%
89 points = 23.3%
90 points = 45.5%
91 points = 68.2%
92 points = 85.6%

LINK

Right now we're at a 33% chance to make it, but divisional games cause that number to swing wildly.

I saw this on twitter last night. not sure if accurate but looks roughly correct *shrug*

14-6-3 85%
15-6-2 95%
16-5-2 99%
16-4-3 100%

I'll still continue to watch the Games but it sucks knowing that in the end, it won't matter unless the teams ahead start losing a lot and the Devils start winning a lot....

How many points do devils need to make the playoffs?
More than they're going to get. Like others have posted, NJ needs to win ~15 out of the remaining 23 to have a realistic chance of making it, and nothing points to them being able to do that. Unless big positive changes are made at the trade deadline, NJ won't be in the postseason.

They haven't won games a consistent basis since the second half of 2012. I've seen absolutely nothing from them over the past 100 games to make me think that record is doable.

First up it's the Blue Jackets. We haven't showed up to play this team once. The best effort we had against them this season, was a game in which we gave up 5 goals and blew a 3-1 lead. Also lost the game with less than 2 minutes left in regulation.

Then we got the Islanders. We usually don't get up for this team like the other division teams (minus the Blue Jackets) we regularly drop a giant deuce to this team. Make the Michael Grabner look like Gretzky and make the skeleton of Nabokov look better than he did when he was actually still living. The good news is that we didn't play horribly against them the two times this season. Well we did let Grabzky run wild in the first game, but it wasn't horrible.

Then the Sharks. This is a lost cause. We played them pretty decently last time, but still lost. This is just a far superior team to us.

Then two against the Red Wings. Not sure what to expect from them. The 11 shot game against them last time was among the worst efforts of the season. I don't think that had **** to do with how they played that night. They were very depleted that night. Their lineup was HORRIBLE that night, but we just put in a garbage effort.

Oh and I think we have the Flyers coming up after the two against Detroit. Or we have them in there sometime soon. Can't wait to lose to Ray Emery for the THIRD time this season. You just KNOW they're gonna start him again against us. They won't start Mason against us once this season. Their coaches know that he ****ing sucks, but playing us is always a good occasion to give their workhorse the night off. Cause he knows we won't test him at all, other than a flukey Cam Janssen deflection. We might have a better chance of winning a shootout this year than playing the Flyers without Emery.

Those two games against Detroit are really the only chance they'll probably have to catch them for the last wild card spot. And that's not even counting the other teams that are in that battle.

You're right.


Devils *HAVE TO* sweep that series with both games won in Regulation in order to have a legit shot at getting in.

Really they have to focus on just getting no worse than five out of eight points in these next four games (really it probably has to be 6+) to stay in the race. Any more backwards movement before the deadline and playoff talk will be academic at that point, cause there's a certain line where even Lou will sell.

Gotta beat the Blue Jackets and Islanders for sure. No excuses at all. If the Blue Jackets get a point, they get a point but it's gotta be 2 by us.

At this point we have to be ALL IN. This means if there's anywhere we can sacrifice defense for offense we do it. Gelinas better offensively than Harrold? Bench Harrold. Larsson better offensively than Salvador? Bench Salvador. Lotkionov is better offensively than Bernier? Bench Bernier. Let's ride Schneider and hope he can steal us games where we aren't as stellar defensively, but hopefully that could mean some 3-2, 4-3 wins etc..

Fact is...as it stands now we get a couple wins and the teams we're chasing lose a couple and we are RIGHT back in this...we aren't in as terrible of a spot as some people here act like...and since the west beat down the east so hard this year I'm thinking 88-90pts will be the magic number
