The Wings are currently sitting 8th in the west but the fortunate thing about our situation is we currently control our destiny. With the standings looking like they currently do right now.

The other very interesting point is the two teams that trail us, Phoenix and Dallas, are both on our schedule in the remaining 8 games. The thing that scares me is we could be going in to game 48 against Dallas with a Winner gets playoffs game. Kinda like in 2010 when the Rangers played Philly and winner went on to the playoffs. Philly ended up winning that in a Shoot out. It's usually pretty obvious to say if you play better then the team below you then you will seed higher, but lucky for us even if we win just as many games as they do the rest of the way. We are still in.... This is going to be a fun final 8...

It's definitely a weird feeling knowing that our playoff chances could come down to the last game. I'll be happy as long as they make the playoffs. I want more Red Wings hockey and I want to keep that streak alive. I'm not ready for this half season to be over.

Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

Great, I'll be at the Dallas game....and a nervous f****** wreck.  I'm liable to hurt someone if it comes down to that and the boys don't  show up.  I've been fearing that scenario all year.

 I'd actually rather them play the Ducks.  I'd like to see Chicago sweep Minnesota and centcougar come on here saying how they were wronged somehow, and most of all I will be paying close attention to 3 vs 6.  I want to see Backes completely goon up the Sedin sisters and we can all brace ourselves for an epic divefest of Perron vs.....well, pretty much the entire Cansucks team. 


Free darkmanx!

Yup... We grab atleast a point tonight, but beating Chicago tonight might give us some confidence if we play them first round...

Maybe I'm crazy but I just don't see the Wings missing the playoffs. I think there is just too much talent on this team to miss them. When you have a crazy 48 game mini season everything gets magnified and the slightest thing can change quickly that's why I think alot of times the Wings look horrible and other times they look like contenders , its just a crazy season, but when their backs are against the wall they play better. But like I said maybe I'm crazy.

The Wings control their own destiny so-long as they keep the 8th seed, which is a more and more fragile situation. We are two points ahead of 3 teams which are all trending better than the Wings at the moment, and one with a game in hand. In other words, the Wings need to win more games then three teams which are currently playing better than they are, one of which has the benefit of a game in hand AND the ROW tie breaker....

 

So now ask yourself this: do the Wings REALLY control their own destiny playing the way they are?

This team can't control themselves on the ice, let alone their destiny.  With how they're currently playing, it'll be a miracle if we finish the season higher than 11th.

Doesn't every team control their own destiny EVERY YEAR? All you got to do is win.

...after the last two games we've lost a bit of that "control" you spoke of.

 

Fifth through 11th place are now separated by all of six points.

 

This is going to be a nailbiter and very soon (if you're not already) we're going to be rooting for some of our least favorite teams to be beating some of our other least favorite teams on a nightly basis.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Yea the last two loses really hurt us... But we stil got points which sorta helps... Lucky for us the only really tough game is Vancouver... We play a lot of the teams that are chasing us and we need wins against them. That's for sure...
