Thinking there should be a thread for this as the season winds down, Dallas now in the 3rd position, SJ is in 9th.

they do have fewer gp, but still just think if the wings were in that position.

Dallas isn't even that good and yet they're 3rd.

So if we play them in the playoffs with a better record who will have home ice? Providing we don't win our division that is.

The league should change that rule.

A team should not have home ice over another team which finished ahead of it. Especially in this case, it would be a wide margin of points.

I remember the NBA having a rule (maybe they still do), where a 3 seed would sometimes have home court over a 2 seed, depending on who had a better record.

I meant in the second or third round actually. If they're a 3 seed and we're a 4 seed. Who would have home ice then?

You don't know, you assume. I remember a 7th seed Flyers making it to the finals not too long ago. Albeit they didn't win, they got close.

Having said that, I'd much rather the Wings take the Central.

I would love to hear the logic in this one, what does finishing 4th, 1st or 8th have to do with getting on a roll and winning 16 games?

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Could care less where the Wings finish. Sure home ice throughout the playoffs would be nice but if they can't get win on the road and PP doesn't improve then..........yeah.
You may not like tough hockey, but it's winning hockey.

Yea for them not our guys who can't win on the road.

The problem with finishing 4th or lower means you have to start a series or two on the road and that pretty much automatically puts the Wings in an 0-2 hole!

Aside from 2010 against the Coyotes who haven't won a playoff series in forever you have to go all the way back to 1998 when the Wings last won a series where they didn't have home ice advantage.

In 97 & 98 they didn't need home ice all the way through b/c they used to have all the time before and never won the Cup so they stopped putting much emphasis on regular season standings but since then they need the #1 seed to get them the Cup e.g. 02 & 08.

If we end up 4th seed and seeds 6, 7, and 8 win their series, we have home ice at least until the finals. I'm just saying it's possible, so quit saying it's not. We are around .500 on the road, so even without home ice, that doesn't 'automatically put us in a 0-2 hole'. It means we could be 1-1, 0-2, or even 2-0. That's why they play the games, because any team can win on any given night.

Im very impressed at the job the guys down in Dallas have been doing. After losing Richards, I dont think many gave them a chance. They brought in guys that were considered cast offs, secondary players or spare parts.

Without home ice they are not beating the Canucks and that's a fact. They may also not beat St.Loser without home and even with home ice they are still not safe as the Preds, Hawks, Blues & Canucks can all beat this flawed Wings team in the playoffs. Just like the 2010 & 2011 Wings playoff teams this is just as flawed!

Thats a fact?

Anyway... If the wings hold serve at home, all they need to do is win just one game on the road. .500 is not red wing standard, but it also demonstrates that we win enough to be able to take at least one of four in someone else's building.
