I liked our playoff chances much better before the trade deadline. Both Atlanta and NY Islanders have greatly improved themselves. We need around 20 points out of our last 14 games. Not good odds...Considering the last 14 games we have only 10 points.

Our odds of getting into the playoffs are about 1 in 5.

Really don't see it happening barring a minor miracle. Carbo's lost this team, seems completely lost behind the bench and is a primary factor for the divided dressing room.

Add to that the fact that our all-star goaltender is out til the playoffs (if by chance we get in) and our current tandem hasn't exactly taken the ball and ran with it (though I thought Halak was spectacular against the Bruins). Shoddy defense all around and inconsistent scoring is the cherry on top for this sinking ship.

Doesn't help that the Islanders and Thrashers both improved their teams at the deadline and we did nothing. Unless we win 10 of 14 as has been said, it doesn't happen this year.

In my eyes,

i would be ready to say a definite no after next game.

We have play well this year against Atlanta and if we can find a way to win this one. 9/13 is plausible. Especially consideing the next one is again the Blues.
________

At this point we need to go 10-4.
Winning the next 2 would put that at: 8-4.

That's possible and i still kinda hope. There are a lot of beatable teams in those 14 games also

Well with the way the other teams fighting for 8th are playing we could still make it, if the team starts playing with some sort of desperation game in game out. Unfortunately the only thing consistent about this club is that they are inconsistent. quite frankly IMO they don't really deserve to make the playoffs.

If we did make it as a bottom seed and i could pick a team to play, it would be Buffalo, for various matchup reasons.

There's still a chance. But right now, I'd like to see Carbonneau just give the bait to the young players.. Here Higgins, Plekanec, Perezhogin, Komisarek and Kostitsyn. Here's a boat load of ice-time, let's see what you can do for me when the race is tight.

Habs don't have a snowball's chance in hell of making the playoffs.... sad but true unfortunately.... nonetheless, I really like our prospects and I can see us bouncing back next season.....

True, but any team that makes the playoffs has to earn it.

Indeed, but with the way the habs are playing right now, they don't seem interested in earning it.
