CBJ are my concern, I would not be surprised if they win out.  Forces us to do the same assuming the Wild win one of their last 2

The schedule does not allow for an extra game. No major sports league on the planet does this.

 
WRONG
 
the MLB does this

Baseball, not a major sport? Interesting.

Interesting.


Maybe just hockey and spelling bees qualify.

If the Minnesota Wild don't make the playoffs will someone get fired?

Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

As for the Dallas - Columbus game, I believe after regulation, it will be a tie. I'll be hoping for a Dallas victory. BJ's are for real and with Gaborik, a real threat.

Parise :)

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

You would think so given their talent.  But the shortened season may be in that person's favor.

In hockey, those are called rabbit punches.

 

Wouldn't even be considered a halfway decent fight.  

 

 

In any case, back to the thread, I think Columbus and Minnesota will win out. Once again, it'll come down to the Wings to take care of their own business.  No one is going to do us any favors.

This is not a thread about fighting in the NHL, the MLB, or anything other than locking up that 8th spot and who's going to do it.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I totally disagree here. Columbus is playing the best hockey in our division right now. They have won the last 5 in a row, 3 of which they came from behind. Bobbrovski has been unreal.....second in the league in save percentage at .931. They were in 13th spot before the trade deadline and they have played hard, physical hockey and deserve to be where they are. We have a game in hand but the last 5 games they have NOT been playing the oilers....they have consecutive wins against SJ, St. Louis! Minny, Col and Anaheim last night. Everyone on that team is contributing and they frighten me. Detroit needs to take a page out of that book....never say die, never give up and keep it SIMPLE! Let's hope we can do that

Well, here we are.....

The way we have played the last 5 games, we deserve a playoff berth but anyone that has watched Columbus has to give cudos where due. They have been amazing. If I got to pick the scenario, I would hope that Minnie looses their last 2 and both C Bus and Detroit make it. Its completely unlikely but it would feel like karma b3tchslapped those overpaid weasals on the Wild.

I think we make the playoffs. We have played with a lot of heart, character, composure and determination. We need one point.....I want the win- I want the team to clinch on their own if possible. If we play the way we have down the stretch its a no brainer.....and all of our finger nails can grow back!!!!

Good luck BOYS!!!

Columbus and Detroit deserve the 7th and 8th.  Minny has been trending down but not likely that they will lose 2.  But you never know, if they lose the 1st one, the pressure might get to them.  

 

Columbus, Det, Minny already in playoff mode.
