Ideal post-season position?

Considering the way the Habs have been playing at home, I kind of don't want them to be fourth in the conference for the playoffs. I think the most advantageous position they could be in would be sixth. That way, they get a team that'll probably have fewer points than they do in the standings, and they'll start out on the road. What do you think?

Let's just make the playoff and worry about what position we are after.

The ideal position is "in" as opposed to "out".

7th if the Penguins/Flyers win the division, 6th if the Devils win it.

I'd take first, but that's just me. I guess 6th is just as good.

The ideal spot is the one who will face the South-East division winner. Theoricaly.

I'd have to agree. 6th place is a good seed nowadays. IF you're looking to avoid home ice advantage...

I say we'll finish 5th with accumulating between 98-100 pts.(44-27-11 season record)

I'd say finishing 4th or 5th with the Bruins taking the 4th or 5th as well.

I'm just concentrating on making the playoffs. I really don't care who we face.

Agreed.As long as we make it and secure a fairly comfortable seed in the 4-6 position
