No I think it needs to be 

 

4/23 Go Kings

        Go Sharks

 

4/24 Go Wings

 

4/25 Go Wings

        Go Blue jackets

 

4/26  Go Edmonton

 

4/27  Go Wings

          Go Avs

          Go Preds

 

We get 7th, CBJ (from Ohio and like their chances of beating on Chi as they have all season with a maybe upset) at 8th. We may get a round or two.

 

Under this scenario I see (read as wish on shooting stars last night)

 

Round 1 West Only

 

 

1. Chicago beat by CBJ in 6  

2. Anaheim beat by Det in 6

3. Vancouver beats Stl in 7

4. Los Angeles beat by SJ in 6

 

Round 2

Van beats CBJ in 7

SJ beat by Det in 6

 

Round 3

Van beat by Det in 6

 

SCF

Det beats the ever loving snot, pee, and any other bodily substance imaginable out of Pitt in 4 with TooToo administering the Coupe D'Grace on #87 as Bettman stands helplessly by. And while Datsuyk is handed the Conn Smythe he hands it immediately to TooToo for his heroics as McCarty beams from behind the Det bench. Also Bert gets his first skate with the Cup. 

 

So shall it be written, so shall it be done.

 

 

I will put forth my good thoughts for this scenario!!

I'd love to see Minny lose out and miss the playoffs.

 

Agreed.

As a Wings and Jets fan, this next week is going to give me a heart attack.

I cringe every time people on this forum declare that the Wings will win something.  Similar to how they were going to beat fartsburgh in game 6 at home in '09.  You know...cuz that happened  :glare:

 

I am hardly one to be a spoil-sport, but I am a pretty firm believer in the saying "Don't count you chickens before they hatch".  So..yeah, as far as I go, Wings might win 8th.  They better work their butts off, too.  Columbus deserves to be in the playoffs just as much (if not more than) as we do.

Before you get too carried away, it's time for you to be brought back to 1970... We had everything going wrong for us from the offseason to the final day of the season. Gordie's sudden decline and management controversy over the Bobby Baun salary situation. Christ, giving the Leafs Norm Ullman 2 years back as well. We make the playoffs but BAM. 4-0 swept by Chicago in the first round. 

 

Thankfully they didn't win the cup, or else we'd be looking at 11-5 right now.

Never assume something, before it actually happens this has just too much jinx potential to be honest.

 

Columbus still holds all the cards, Minnesotta is going to make it too so it will be hard fight till the end I guess.

Hmm. I'm a bit tired so maybe that is why I'm confused. 

 

Detroit has a game in hand over Columbus, as well as the ROW tie breaker, while only being down by 1 point. 

 

That is hardly all the cards...???

My bad, didn't look at the GP you are right, so if the Wings are winning all remaining games they make it but my point still stands:

 

talking about the playoffs can happen, as soon as the Detroit Red Wings are officially in.

The Red Wings WILL... play 3 more games this regular season. That's about the only thing that should be taken as a certainty. 

 

I do appreciate the positive vibes the OP is attempting to toss out, I really do, but expect this thread to go nuclear should it not happen.

San Jose takes care of Dallas, but Minny pulls out a win against LA. Win tonight and we are in eighth and a point behind seventh

If Columbus wins out and gets ROW wins in both of their last games, they hold the tiebreakers with Detroit if they don't get another ROW.  Plus they would have 55 pts.  Detroit has three games and are one point behind, suppose they win two in overtime and lose one, they miss the playoffs.  Suppose they win two in overtime and lose one in a shootout, they miss the playoffs.  THAT IS RAZOR THIN!!  If they Win one in OT and lose two in shootouts they miss the playoffs.  This just shows you how awful we have been blowing easy games.  They basically have to beat Dallas in regulation and one of the other two games  games in regulation to have it more or less locked up.  5 of 6 points.  This is like being down 3-1 in the playoffs. 


"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

Yep, Stars lost, Wild won, so let's just focus on the 8th spot (Minny would have to blow some more games to have any chance of being in real danger).

 

I disagree about the "down 3-1 in the Playoffs analogy".  We have 3 games left, CLB has 2.  They can get to 55 points, while we can get to 56.  So we do "control our destiny" in that respect.

 

Also, with a two-game advantage in ROW (and an extra game to get one), I don't see CLB having the tiebreaker either.  We have an LA team tonight traveling far east and playing back to back games, while we are more rested and at home. 

 

 

We aren't "in the driver's seat" because we don't have more points than the 8th seed team, but we are also a game behind them right now, so that's deceptive.
