Thanks for the good thoughts, we need it! Would end up being the story in hockey this year if it happened, no?

What's going on with your Leafs? Quinn preoccupied with the Olympics? I see some good pieces for the future (Steen, Coliacovo, Ponikorovski, Stajan) maybe time for some purging (Lindros, Allison, Belfour)...still get through the Olympic break, make a March push, and cause trouble with some less-playoff experienced teams (Buffalo, Carolina)...you know the Sens don't want any part of you.

Best of luck to the TML!

I just want to crack the top 8 in those standings, that's my wanted goal for the rest of this season. Sure it's a contrived goal, but it would mean we played playoff-level hockey for the final 59 games of the season.

Nice analysis.

Dare I say the word "parity" that is starting to creep into the 'New NHL' - at least in the Western Conference. Since that date there are a lot of teams close to one another. Imagine the excitement in NHL cities if this kind of competition could last an entire season Very possible in a salary capped world.

My goal for the year would be for CBJ to finish the year at .500 or above.
I think that would be quite an accomplishment

If by playoffs you mean the 3rd spot in the Central Division, then, yeah I guess there is a shot. Maybe next year.

the leafs right now are screwed from the business aspect of the team. the management and ownership want to market to the old nhl fans so they refuse to adapt. big names still sell more than goals in toronto i guess...

the blue jackets are still my western conference favorite. i bet they surprise everyone. i have lots of faith in the team.

To get down to the cold, hard facts, as I see them....

It used to be that about 90 pts. in the regular season would get a team the last playoff seed (or at least pretty darn close) in the West; it seems that those days are over. Where games used to end in ties, now games have a winner no matter what, so extra points are generated in the standings via the shootout wins. Thus, where it used to take about 90 points to get in, that number is now probably closer to 95, when you throw in that the ten games or so teams would have tied each year now get that extra point from the shootout win, assuming they breakeven in the shootout results.

The current standings pretty much bear that out. Edmonton would be the 8th seed at this point, and they have 60 pts. after 51 games, which is a pace of 96 pts. for the season. For Columbus to achieve that point total, they could only afford to lose three games in regulation (and not lose an OT or shootout) over the last 32 for them to have a chance at the playoffs.

That pretty much translates the team's inaugural season of 71 pts. in the old world to about 76 points in the new world. Kind of puts a new slant on things, doesn't it?

Well...a Troll is a supernatural creature of Scandinavian folklore, variously portrayed as a friendly or mischievous dwarf or as a giant, that lives in caves, in the hills, or under bridges has to do with anyting.

It's good to see you have faith in us.

A lot of things have to go right for us to squeak into the playoffs:

1) We CAN'T make Edmonton a target, beacuse "they're a starting goaltender away from the best record in the west"
2) We're going to have a really healthy team from here on out
3) We're going to need solid goaltending, a clear-cut #1 resulting from it
4) We're going to need hiccup-free offense
5) Special Teams are going to have to accept Jesus Christ as their lord, savior and put him on the point.

Already you can see a few problems: The "target" issue means that a lot of teams ahead of us are going to have to implode. Who's going to implode?

Health? Berard is looking like he'll be on the IR -- On the flipside, he's trade bait, and Fedorov is reportedly at 100%, but on that flip, Nash may still be injured

Goaltending? Denis was named the "true" starter, and we dropped our last two games. Denis may be the starter, but he's going to have to be head and shoulders better than not only Leclaire, but a lot of other goaltenders in the league to anchor the team. This is evident in the fact that Columbus has yet to finish off a team in decisive order in the span that they were "hot".

Bringing us to offense.... As much as it's sweet and cool that we can go to shootout every third game and win, that's not the way to win every night from Tuesday on until Mid-April. We'd have to have a much better team than that... I could see a club like San Jose getting away with it, but are we strong enough to sustain that level of clutch? We're either going to have to save those close wins for rainy days and win efficiently against lesser opponets (which by this model would be the lower 14 teams in the 'HL), or not do it at all

And ofcourse, Jesus Christ won't be playing the point because he's a Penguins prospect.
