We should trade this team's future so that inexperienced St Louis and one-and-done Nashville don't win the division

I say the Wings finish 4th and win 1 round and thats it b/c they can't play defense as the odd man rushes & breakaways are going to kill this team come playoff time especially against a team like Vancouver. I don't even think the Wings can handle the Hawks or possibly the Blues, Preds and Coyotes.

Why is it that the Canucks "should" knock off the Blues tonight? They're playing every bit as good as Vancouver right now.

If I were a betting man I'd certainly be picking the Canucks tonight. Like the Wings, the Blues are getting it done at home and are .500 on the road. Anything's possible of course, but I would agree the Canucks "should" take care of business; the question now becomes whether or not they follow through.

You forget these are the Blues. The Blues cannot lose. Therefore, the Blues will win because they won'tf****** lose.

The loser of this divisional race gets stuck playing Chicago in the first round. We can beat Chicago, but it would be an unneeded expense.

Just ask Vancouver how fun that was last year.


The fact that Luongo shat the bed was really a bit part of that.

I'd have to put my money on the Canucks too and not just because of the Blues road record but also that, given the travel distances involved, I think the Canucks really do want all the home ice advantage they can get in the playoffs.

Who should we cheer for to win tonight? St. Louis or Vancouver? I'd have to say Van so that we can have a better chance of winning the Central.

St. Louis is not a playoff team. When the intensity is kicked up, you've got to be able to put up the goals, and St. Louis isn't built for that.

They are a playoff team in that they'll make the playoffs but they won't get past the second round with their lack of scoring

If we don't win the Central division it's probaly not going to be good for us come playoffs. I don't like sitting 4th overall in the West or worst. Also our road woes have cost us all season long. I don't see that changing come playoff time. St. Louis has played great at home too. IMO finishing first in the West is pivotal in us having home ice adavantage.
