Too late to tank. Tank to me is selling at the deadline or before. Icing a **** team and grabbing a high pick. Getting extra picks. None of those things happened. Coming up a couple points shy is failing, not tanking.

Dallas won and is only 2 pts behind now, both teams 9 games remaining, and they will play eachother on the last game of the season.
At this point it's too late to tank. I'd rather finish 8th and be in the playoffs and at least give us a chance to catch lightning in a bottle.

Even if we lose we'll still pick like 15th or 16th. Where as missing the playoffs will get us pick like 13th or 14th because we will not win the lottery.

Ken Holland's philosophy won't change because we came in 9th and missed the playoffs opposed to 8th and made it in a 48 game season, if that's what you're hoping for.

I think we finish 7th and play Anaheim. Detroit is one good 5-6 game run from being a 6th place team really, but I think 7th is very manageable. Just avoid Chicago. Fun rivalry, terrible matchup for us

It's in their hands now. Wings can go on a run and give themselves a matchup that lets them potentially go deep.

Or they can **** the bed and get swept by Chicago (if they manage to squeak in at all)

Make a choice, dudes.

In a league where over half the teams make the playoffs, striving to just make them is the very definition of mediocrity. I want us to be a contender

Because coming in 9th and missing the playoffs by a point or 2 in a lockout shortened season is a lot different then being in say the Flames or Preds position. And Like I said I'd rather be the 8th seed and be in the playoffs where anything can happen then be that team he barely misses. If we lose in round 1 we'd be picking only one or two picks lower.


Holland was adamant on keeping his first this year, so he changed somewhat.

If Bobrovsky wins the Vezina that would be so awesome given that I'm surrounded by Flyers fans.

I think I'll be rooting for Edmonton tonight. A Phoenix win puts them just 1 point behind, at least with an EDM win they're 2 points back. As long as it isn't a 3 point game I'm happy with the end result. And if we win on Thursday this game should eliminate the loser of this game.

Phoenix is up 2-0 right now. If they win they move 1 point behind us but we will have a game in hand on them. I think it will come down to our game on April 22nd, either we finally eliminate them and get some space or we fall behind them by more points.

Tomorrow nights game against the Sharks has become quite the important game for us.

And Nashville. The Stars aren't out of it, best case scenario tonight is we win with all 3 of the teams chasing us losing. One more win for us with them all losing a game should mean we're in.

It's currently 1-1 in the STL-CBJ game, 1-0 for DAL in their game. Gotta hope the preds squeak out a win.

Edit: Wow and just like that it's 2-0 Stars & 3-1 Blue Jackets. I guess there is still hope for a Coyote loss... right?

Columbus and Dallas with 2 points, Phoenix with 1, Detroit with 1.

Pretty bad night for the standings.

So with our SOL tonight we're sitting at 45 points. We're 1 point behind Minny, they have a game in hand, Dallas is 2 points back with a game in hand, Columbus is 2 points back & Phoenix is going to OT so they will be either 1 or 2 points back.

7-Minnesota: 40GP-22W-16L-2OTL-46P-18 ROW
8-Detriot: 41GP-19W-15L-7OTL-45P-17 ROW
-------------------------------------------------------
9-Dallas: 40GP-20W-17L-3OTL-43P-18 ROW
10-Phoenix: 41GP-18W-16L-7OTL-43P-15 ROW
11-Columbus: 41GP-18W-16L-7OTL-43P-14 ROW

The next 5 games will be crucial. We play Nashville, Calgary, Vancouver, Phoenix & LA. We have to go at least 3-2 in our next 5, with 2 of the wins coming in regulation. That would put us at 51 points and I can't see Dallas or Columbus going 4-1, Phoenix could pass us because we play each other.

Minny should be in they play CBJ, CGY x2, EDM & SJ in their next 5. That's a pretty easy schedule.

I think next week we're gonna see Dallas fall out of the race; they have to play SJ tomorrow then they play CHI, VAN, STL & LA. The do have a game in hand but I think that we will be even by the LA game.

The Jackets have 1 win against the Avs, they have to play Minny tomorrow then ANA, LA & SJ.

Phoenix has to play SJ, STL, CHI, DET & SJ again.

I still think that as long as we go 5-4, or get 10 points over these 9 games remaining we will get in. So far we're 0-0-2, so if we can win the next which we should we're looking good.

The biggest games left right now are against Phoenix and if Dallas doesn't fall off then our last game of the season against Dallas is huge.

You know we could lose all of our games in the Shootout and still make it.
