The crazy thing is if we catch a winning streak here we could be looking as high as 5-6 seed instead of 9th... It's crazy how close the playoff race is... The big games will be us vs Phoenix and Dallas...

We want to finish 7th. Best matchup is against the Ducks. 5th would not be good. Someone else can play the Kings. Jimmy completely stole our last win against them. We had no business winning that one.

Yea I agree 7th would probably give us out beat match up... I wouldn't mind matching up against Vancouver... But losing to a guy like burrows would really piss me off..

canucks scare me the least of the top 3 seeds. I think the ducks are better than our season series record shows. we can hang with the nucks no problem.

Honestly, aside from Chicago, there aren't really any "scary" teams in the West. Minnesota makes me a little nervous, just because they could be one of those teams to surprise people, especially if they play the Wings. The Suter/Parise storyline alone puts me ill at ease because the Wings were so close to landing Suter. Which of course means they would beat us.

Chicago plays our style of game, but plays it much, much better. We can beat Anaheim, Vancouver, Dallas, and St. Louis. Los Angeles is a bit of a question mark. Seven game series, I think, 50/50. So as long as we get into the playoffs, I think we can at least make 2nd round provided we avoid Chicago.

Minnesota's interesting - agree they would be "scary" in the playoffs because they have the goaltending, and Parise could take charge. That being said, while the Pominville thing is "working", they are all of 3-6-1 in their last 10, and Suter has some type of undisclosed injury that caused him to leave a game early, but hasn't kept him out of the lineup yet. Pretty much no chance we play them in Round 1, though, unless we both somehow surged to the 4/5 seeds.

Columbus is 7-3 in their last 10 and added players at the deadline. They also possibly have the best goaltending in the league right now, so I do worry about them jumping us for #8. The one problem for them is that their Regulation & Overtime Wins (ROW) total is only 15, which is several fewer than MIN, STL, DET, and DAL.

I'd be nervous with Chicago, but the team that would kick the s*** out of us unless Howie stands on his head and we get some bounces is LA. I see a WCF of Chicago vs LA now that St. Louis has zero consistency. I still want Duck Soup!
