What Place in the Season Will We End In?

Current Standings:


We're only 3 points down to Washington in 5th place and we have a game in hand. Before this season started, I saw us in 6th-8th place. But now, I have so much more confidence in them even though I doubt they will be able to go anywhere in the playoffs. But just seeing them this high up is a progress. I think they can get into 5th.

I'll be optimistic and say they'll go on a tear and end up in fourth.

I'm gonna say 7th. That's a nice bump from where I thought we would be prior to the season (where I was thinking 8-10.)

I would like the way it currently is. I think we could beat Boston. I don't want to finish 5th, though. That means we'll face either Pittsburgh or Philly.

If they can get their stuff together and play at home like they do on the road, they can finish 1st. However, as of now, considering how much better they are on the road I'd rather they finish 8th so they can't have home-ice in any play-off series.

+1, voted 6th. I'd like to avoid an Atlantic match up in the 1st round if possible, we might even be favourites against the weakest division winner with the away ice advantage.

Funny how it would actually benefit our team, if we actually made it to the 4th seed to intentionally tank and get the 5th/6th seed just to avoid playing at home. For whatever reason we're one of the few teams with a home ice disadvantage. We're 13-6-0 on the road! BEST IN THE LEAGUE!

9-0 in the 2nd game of B2Bs. You know what it is? Our team sucks if they're well rested. The exhaustion of a road trip makes them play better lol.

I also voted 6th.

I want home ice as much as possible in the playoffs.

Having said that, I went with a VERY optimistic 6th...it's a long season and we have overacheived thus far.

I think this will be a very exciting team to watch in the playoffs. Looking forward to it.

Sixth is where I see the Rangers...I don't think they're in the echelon of Pittsburgh, Philly, Washington, Boston and TB. They're in that next tier. But, given that I thought this was a team likely to miss the playoffs, sixth is just dandy by me, especially since it's a developing-core-driven sixth.

Let's not kid ourselves here. We've had a relatively easy schedule so far, facing many non-playoff teams.

The journey ahead is tougher. The question is if our young team is up for it.

I see us ending in the 7-8th range.

I don't.

The fact is this team plays better on the road. I don't know why, but it does. I want the team to have the best chance possible to make it as far into the playoffs as possible, and a home ice disadvantage does not help the team.

When that changes then I'll want to see them on home ice more.

What? We beat Washington (who is definitely a playoff team who probably won't win the cup) 7-0. We beat Pittsburgh also.

I'm not voting at this point because there's just too many variables with so much time to go. We've not had an easy schedule by any means, but it's not been the toughest either. There are sizeable differences in how many games certain teams have played so far and some are overachieving/underachieving. Personally, I'd just be happy with getting in the PO's and getting the kids some experience... win or lose.

I'm going to go with 6th, which I actually think would be ideal for the Rangers.

With that logic, Boogaard is a first liner. After all, he scored. 82 goals per season is awesome.

You don't want to play Tampa Bay? No way that team can win a 7 game series as constructed. They have questionable goaltending, no threatening defensemen (scoring or physical) and they are a top heavy scoring team with poor secondary scoring.

Only scary thing about them is Stamkos and St.Louis imo. They are POOR 5-on-5 near the bottom of the league scoring (we are 11th they are 28th). They are easily beaten by keeping Stamkos in check and staying out of the penalty box. (and don't turn the puck over to the skilled players)

Plus they are extremely weak along the boards and a large team, such as the Rangers can dominate them if they play physical - Philly + the Rangers SHOULD own this team, which makes our losses to them rather pathetic imo.

I agree on the other teams that are currently in the playoffs, especially Pittsburgh, we match up HORRIBLY with them.

As MisterUnSpoken said, I would gladly face Tampa in a playoff. They are the Washington Capitals light, with the same weaknesses even more glaring. They won't do any damage in a playoff. As long as our players don't decide to give goals to them on a silver platter, I'm pretty confident we would beat them. We have a solid record against them for a reason.

Winning in the regular season is a whole other ballpark from winning in the playoffs, because then the teams are 100% focused on eachother. They have the better top line, we have a better team depth. Depth wins you playoff games. We're also an excellent away team, which will prove invaluable if we make the playoffs.

If this team gets into the playoffs, I feel like teams will take us lightly and we'll go up 1-0 the first game. Then we'll get beaten the following game. But this is where this year's team is different from previous ones. They have that extra fuel to get them past a superior opponent, whereas last year's team did not.
