But if Colorado can beat the Kings, the Wings will be 2 points away from being tied for 5th in conference. Yeah, I know about the tiebreakers, but 2 points separating 4 teams with less than 10 games left should make for an interesting 2-3 weeks!

The top 4 and bottom 4 seeds could basically end up in a million different ways. It's impossible to say who will face who in the 1st round at this point.

Like you say, the last weeks will be fun, I just hope Calgary chokes and fades away so we don't have to worry about falling to 9th atleast.

About the only thing that worries me now, ironically enough, is that we have 5 games against the bottom 3 teams in the West (and 4 of them at home). Far too many 'trap' games for my liking. Then we have the Preds and Flyers (both fighting for playoff spots themselves) on the road, and both the 2nd night of back to back for us. Looks easy on paper, but I hate our schedule. Probably because if we miss now, it would have to go down as an epic collapse.

That said, I think we'll beat Nashville twice, leapfrog them and either the Avs or Kings, and end up in the 6 spot against Vancouver.

This is such a crazy year that they may just as well be better off being 8 than 5 (A lot of people would rather the Wings play SJ than PHO, I'm not sure). Every team in the West playoff picture is so good this year that anybody could beat anybody. Obviously it's great to see them keep moving up, but I honestly don't know who I want them to face in the first round if they make it. It's like picking the lesser of seven evils. If only they were in the lEast...

Goalie issues aside, I still think Chicago is the best of those seven, so I'd prefer not to play them first. I also like the thought of being in fifth if only to avoid having to go through 1-2-3 (in theory) to get to the finals. Heck, if they're five and win in the first, they could end up with home ice in the second.

I'm not sure who I want to win this one. If LA wins then we can jump COL pretty easily. But if COL wins then LA will only be 2 points away from us so we could possibly catch 5th if the Preds stay in place.

Honestly, I dont want the six seed. Vancouver scares me the most. That being said, I have a hard time believing we dont make up two points in the last nine games, (albeit La has a game in hand on us) and we jump to the 5 seed.

I just dont see San Jose making a long run, I think Chicagos goaltending will catch up to them in the playoffs, and as for Phoenix, its very unusual for a young team to make a long run. They will have to take their lumps before they can be considered a legitimate threat in my book.

As far as I see it, the Wings have as good of a shot as anyone to come out of the west, Vancouver being the strongest opponent, which is why I dont want to see them first.

2. Vancouver
3. Chicago
4. San Jose.

Damn I think the Avs won, which would make this a worst-case scenario for us tonight.

Avs and Kings playing nothing but 3-point games is annoying to us, but imagine how Calgary feels. As long as we have 8th I'm not crying that we can't catch the teams above us.

If you look at the remaining schedules for the Wings, Preds, & Avalance, there is no reason why your boys don't move up to 6th, with Nashville and Colorado finishing 7th & 8th respectively.

I wouldn't even worry about Calgary, they still have Boston, Washington, Phoenix, Colorado, Chicago, San Jose, & Vancouver left on their schedule, are 4 pts back and have played 1 more game. That team is done.

I would put LA in this list just after Vancouver. Their offense is like a sleeping giant. If they find a way to wake it up nobody would feel comfortable against them. At least we know what to expect out of Chicago and San Jose.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!
