I don't wish to be a downer, but I am still wary of a clash with the Sharks in the playoffs. They have McLellan coaching them now and he knows Wings really well. Their woes in the recent past have certainly been a mystery. Home ice may not be all that necessary for Wings to win in the playoffs. Last post-season we got the job done on the road in the finals. (Finding a way to lose a game we should have won at the Joe). Having said that, finishing above SJ after the tear they had to begin the season would be sweet. Wings for the President's. And the big one too.
