Likeliest first-round opponents:
Vancouver (22.8%)
St. Louis (14.9%)
Los Angeles (13.3%)
Detroit (12.0%)
Not bad odds. And I would rather play Detroit 1st round out of all of those to be honest. Less travel and not nearly as scary as STL could be.

Dallas is nowhere near the test that Vancouver was. We hadn't won in that arena in I believe the last 11 games there. And Detroit is another team that just always seems to have our number at the Joe. Dallas is just like Calgary is in my eyes, a shell of its former self.

I agree. This team is firing on all cylinders now. And while I was excited last year when we were in 1st, I knew it wouldn't last. This actually appears to be pretty legit. We may not catch Anaheim or Chicago, but the 3rd seed is home ice for the 1st round. What a treat for the fans.

Minnesota hasn't won in Dallas, I think, since 2003. Lots and lots of games there, lots and lots of losses. And we play there twice.

PP is now middle of the pack. GA and PK great. Scoring and shots still a bit below average. And Wild up to 4th in projected points.

Also, the commentators kept saying 56-58 points to get into the playoffs, I'm projecting 53 right now. Wild on pace for 59-60 points now.

I'm a bit confused about the top chart, Jarick. Could you explain what the "vs career" numbers mean?

I think "vs career" is more or less of their career season avg.

Poile is a smart enough guy. No way he cuts off his nose to spite his face. Suter will be on the team. Not even worried.

No, it started when players started falling like dominos and were replaced by something called Warren Peters

Exactly - who needs cable?

I don't have cable so this is really the only way for me to watch the nationally broadcast games. Unfortunately the quality is horrible. It's like watching a series of impressionist paintings of a hockey game.
