Well the good news (if their is any) is that even if we win tonight we will stay in line to draft 7th overall because both Tampa and Winny have 81 pts and with their win tonight, Carolina now has 82 pts. With a win we will have 80.

Edit: Wait, nm, I think we'll move ahead of Carolina. Think they have 80, not 82.

God, did none of you ever play organized sports? If so, you'd get why these guys aren't wired to lose on purpose.

Was really hoping the Preds would just come out hungry tonight. They don't look like themselves.

I think that's been disproven.

Whos asking them to lose on purpose? Just wish we could have taken our collapse all the way to the end of the season.

Wild PP to end regulation and start OT.

Yeah, 20th place has 86 pts. The most we can get is 84.

There's a difference between playing organized sports wanting to win than being a fan hoping for a high draft pick. Of course when I play organized sports, damn right I want to win. But as a fan as a professional sports franchise, a few more wins isn't going to do anything except ruin our draft position when we could get a star forward or defense prospect.

Haven't been impressed with ANY of the teams that we've played who were fighting for (or in) a playoff spot.

I agree. However, I think most people are sick of the ups and downs. For a few games we will look good, then we will just go on an awful streak. And it just goes on and on. Then we end up a few games out of the playoffs and picking towards the middle of the first round.

My two cents.

Were you even here for the most of the game? Or do you show up after the fact to complain.

This team in yellow doesn't look like a playoff team.

Carolina beat Ottawa.

An OTL or SOL here makes 10th impossible.

Toronto has the tiebreaker on us do they not? We have more than twice as many shootout wins as they do. So if our teams finish with the same points they finish ahead of us right?
