Wings getting healthy, Vancouver breaking down = 1st seed in the West for the Wings.

7 points late in the season is hard to make up. But it certainly can be done, that 1st seed in the West could be really important in the long run. I dunno about people on here, but it was really weird starting a playoff series on the road last year, regardless of winning. I'd rather the home ice, especially with this team healthy.

7 points and there are still 30+ games left. They go on a 3 game losing streak and we go on a three game winning streak and we've now taken over the lead. You can't honestly tell me with an AHL defense they couldn't lose 3 games in a row and us not win 3 games in a row now that out line-up is almost entirely healthy?

I said it could be done. If the Boston games are any indication, when the Wings want to they are the best team in the West. And with Vancouver losing tonight, and another body, it's a huge oppertunity. You make a good point, with there defence situation losing a slew of games wouldnt be shocking. Go Wings Go, dont get me wrong, I want that number one seed! :D

We will see. I don't see Edler coming back and Hamhuis and his concussion might sideline him for the season. Plus no one is ever fully healthy when comng back from a broken hand or foot unless your name is Pavel Datsyuk, and he still can't take faceoffs. I seem to be way more pessimistic than you i suppose. but I don't see them being "healthy" comes playoffs.

Jesus, that's awful. I honestly feel bad for Canuck fans with how many injuries they've got on the blue line.

Well, I do until we have to play them, or it's time for the playoffs. Then I'll giggle.

Is that new math?? 3 games x 2 points each win = 7???

Plus, Vancouver has an uncanny ability to lose and still get a point just for showing up as can be seen in their OTL column. They always seem to give it the ol Phoenix try.

Actually, I think we really need to worry more about beating ourselves than losing to other teams. Babs needs to keep the threat of skating suicides fresh in our heads.

I should have clarified, that those two streaks will put us with the best win% in the West. And as for New Math....

It's hard but doable. If the Wings play consistently it'll probably happen in two or three weeks.

Even if we don't pass them, we will still be in good shape. I don't see Vancouver getting to the conference finals. They have no scoring depth and Lou has always had a hard time in the playoffs.

40% of their points come from 3 guys. Compare that to the Wings who have only 30% from the top three guys...

If they finish #1 and us #2, the only time that we wouldn't have home ice would be if we played each other in the conference finals and I don't see that happening.

As far as the SCF who knows what will happen in the East. My bet is Philly will win the east but you never know...
Do or do not. There is no try

Whoever Wins the West wins the President's Cup. The way Detroit and Vancouver are playing, there is no way someone from the East takes it. Wings are 7 points down, have 1 game in hand and don't have everyone healthy. That can very easily be overtaken and built upon. Our D steps up and the offense produces like it did against Boston, no way we don't take home ice all the way through.

In the WCF, if we focus all our energy on shutting down Sedins/Kesler, we should be able to win 2-1, 1-0 every game. Our third and fourth lines are unrivaled in the West and if our top two lines shuts their top two lines down completely-ish, we should be golden...but that is a very tall order and very back breaking.

Certainly easier said than done. In the three games they've played so far this season Daniel has 3G 1A, Henrik 1G 4A, and Kesler 0G 6A.
