.500 should do it

.500 hockey from here on in would get us a playoff spot. That would mean accumulating 31 points over the remaining 31 games for a total of 95 points. Getting 5 more points than that shouldn't be a problem which is why I'm banking on another 100+ point season. I will go as far as saying the Habs will reach 105 points.

If they come away from this long road trip above .500 they're in good shape IMO.

I also think nutrition is important, so they'll have to eat well in order to play better. I don't think Kovalev is eating very well this year, hence his drop in performance. Laps diet is obvious. Carey Price even admitted last year he was eating chocolate bars and such.

Full healthy belly=Habs Victory

Go Habs Go!

lol well...
.500 won't get us a top 4 spot...
So i prefer a top 4 spot and be against a team that is closer to us then being 8th and having to get Boston in round one.
As much as TimmyT was a swiss cheese last year, he's more of a hard Parmesan this year lol

Read the post please. I said if they play .500 hockey for the remainder of the season, not finish with a .500 record overall.

Because P1x44r expected the Habs to be in Boston's place and have the president's trophy won before the season even started. He also thinks we all expected this of the Habs, he didn't expect less from us.

I'm not going to lie, I expected us to compete for the conference title. But with this said, I did not expect us to be as good as Bruins have been this year. Somewhere in-between I guess. However, while my expectations have been adjusted since, I still do not believe we should be aiming at .500 record to end our season.

I think he just meant to show that even IF we would play ,500 hockey, we would still make the playoffs. For sure the Habs will play wuite higher than ,500 hockey till the playoffs. I expect them to get AT LEAST 105 points. Maybe close to 110 points if they get on a roll.

Two wins this week-end and everybody will have forgotten the losing streak.

And those two wins, we can get.

You're missing my entire point. My point was that they're assured to make the playoffs, first and foremost. We gotta get there first and I was pointing out that we'll be there at the very least. I went on further to say that all we'll have to do is play 5 games above .500 to have a 105 point season which should give us 4th spot. In summary, 5 games over .500 is very likely along with 4th spot. I also believe they can close out the remainder of the season around 8 games above .500 which can give them 111 points and still may only be good for 4th just because Boston will likely get to 120 points.

No, 5 games above .500 in the remaining 31 game(so 18-13) would give us 100 points. We need to go 21-11 to get 105 points.

Let's win most our home games and at least half the road games.

15 games at home: 11-4?
16 games on the road: 9-7?

20-11, 40 pts, good for 104 pts, like last year.

We have a great home record (17-5-4) and HAD a good road record (12-7-2) before the lousy streak. If we could keep a great home record and win 11-12 of the last 15 at home and win at least half + loser points on the road, we can match or beat last years total of 104. Lets concentrate making the playoffs first, then we'll talk standings positioning.

I'd rather have a top 4 spot.
7th and 8th would scare me as they'd most likely be the Bruins or Caps.

What was I thinking? My mindset was thinking 2 points per game=10 points over .500 mark. I guess it doesn't work that way. What I meant to say was 5 points more than .500 hockey will get us a 100 point season and 10 points get's us 105 which is very possible, or even probable IMO.

I'm pretty sure they'll get 100 points.

To me, the Habs are now a perrenial 100 points team for the several seasons to come. The best is yet to come. I'm pretty sure the Habs will pull a Boston in one to three seasons.

I'd rather have 4th spot as well, which I believe they will. I was just pointing out the fact that it won;t take much to simply "make" the playoffs first. By this I mean they'll clinch early and then solidify they're seeding of 4th spot. Even Boston fans want their team to first and foremost clinch a playoff spot. That's the first thing every team wants, even the elite teams. Not sure why everyone here takes that for granted. Let's get in first, rest some players after that and grab that 4th spot.

To secure a playoffs spot, we just have to win against teams in the race blowing in our back, just like we did yesterday against Pittsburg..

Before the L.A. game, it was the global panic on this board.. I said that I would start to get a little bit worried if we lose next tuesday against Pittsburg.. Something like 11 pts separate the Pens from us right now.. The Canes lost yesterday, so 9 pts from us and we have a game in hands.. So we will have to take a major fall to not make the playoffs this year, its basically impossible we drop that much considering the team we have..

I would want us to go against the rags in the first round (could be quite possible). And the Ruins against the Sabres as the Sabres seem to have their number this season.
