With a big Wings win, and losses by both the Avs and the Kings tonight, the Wings currently sit in 6th place in the Western Confrence... Woot!

Have the standings been updated yet? It looks like LA and Colorado both have a game in hand and we could easily be down to 8th again.

"Until you're safe, you're still looking behind," Nick Lidstrom said. "You're also looking ahead, looking up in the standings and seeing what teams you can catch that's ahead of you. You can't take anything for granted; you want to continue to win games."

Pretty much what I'm thinking.

True... The Avs have a game in hand and the Kings have two... But we have a game in hand on the Preds too and they're only 1 point ahead... And we seem to be peaking at the right time... We're pretty much a lock to make the playoffs now and I don't think anyone in the West would want to face us if the playoffs were to start today.

There won't be no going back to 8th. I expect the wings to finish 5th. The wings have the easiest schedule ahead. Colorado has it very tough. Av's finish 8th. Detroit plays Nashville at the Joe yet and Wings play one more than Nashville. LA has lost 8 of the last 13 and will keep dropping a few more.

5th wings
6th Preds
7th LA
8th Av's

About a week ago, Barry Melrose posted some video blog on ESPN and predicted that the Wings would finish in 6th place in he West. Could Melrose actually be correct for once?

Isn't an excuse to slack off obviously, but seeding matters very little IMO unless you are in the top-4 to have home ice advantage. Wings probably won't be able to get into 4th place, so the most important thing is finishing about the 9th place team. And that's becoming more and more of a reality everyday if the Wings keep winning or Calgary keeps shooting itself in the foot.

I'm just concerned they will let up a bit now because as SWF said it doesnt matter if you finish 5th or 8th because you wont have homeice advantage either way

I'm not sure Detroit will let up now. They've now seen what they can do when they play to their level. I doubt they will go back to their lackluster, give up 2 goals in the final two minutes to Phoenix style of play.

I don't see a whole lot of dramatic changes in 1-4, so depending on where we end up:

5th - most likely Phoenix
6th - most likely Canucks
7th - Chicago/SJ
8th - Chicago/SJ

I would much rather play Phoenix(because they lack playoff experience) and Sharks (because of wings record against them and their famouse post season chokes) than vanocuver or chicago they're just dangerous in every aspect..

I mostly agree with this. My first choice would be SJ, and then Phoenix, but Chicago as a close second. They don't scare me all that much and I think the Wings could take them. Vancouver worries me a little, however.

Kind of surprised. I'm here in Vancouver and I honestly don't fear them. Their defense which was their weakest link last year is still pretty shoddy. They don't have a stud defenceman. Luongo is shaky right now. They have a lot of offense but we've got a strong D corps. All the folks here on forums in Vancouver fear meeting us ... and some of us would prefer not to meet them in round 1.

I would not want to play Nashville or Vancouver in these playoffs. I have this feeling that it'll be the Hawks and Wings in the first round.

True, but that home ice only comes into play if theres a 7th game.

Always better to have the first two games at home, if you get a 2-0lead in the series many many times you end up winning it...
